NEW HAMPSHIRE EXECUTIVE COUNCILOR RAYMOND BURTON 1939 - 2013

Executive Councilor Ray Burton, standing on the right, was a participant in the Flying Yankee Historic Train since the late Bob Morrell brought the train back to New Hampshire.

Involved in the first meetings of interested individuals, he facilitated the organization of the project. His advice and enthusiasm for the project was instrumental in all phases and continued through his term.

A supporter of the project, whether talking to a constituent or State Officials, he meant more as he was truly a champion of the restoration project. Mostly, he was a friend and for this he will be greatly missed!

There is a seat reserved for Ray up there where he can relax, be comfortable, pain free, and continue to watch over his domain. You can not miss it - across the back it reads: "Burton for Certain". Look for the pot holders and combs.

A sincere thank you Ray from all of us who share with you this dream of seeing the Flying Yankee ride the rails again.
