Step Back in Time: Sept. 21, 2013


Oneonta’s BRT Lodge is numbered “1.”

The local lodge is celebrating the 80th anniversary of the BRT at a dinner Monday night at the Eagles Club.

The affair will not be as grandiose as the 75th anniversary in Oneonta in 1958. “Because of the national rules dispute, we didn’t plan to have any celebration,” T.J. Rosenfeld, secretary of the local BRT said Friday.

The national rules dispute was highlighted by two threatened strikes this summer.

Mr. Rosenfeld said that 214 men are in the local BRT lodge.

Elmer Wessel was the last charter member of the union to die. He died in Oneonta two years ago.

Oneonta is the home of the BRT Shrine, the red caboose in Neahwa Park.
