    It is with deep sorrow and regret to inform everyone that the railfan and railroad community has lost Vincent F. Seyfried, age 93, who passed away on Saturday, April 14, just four days shy of his 94th birthday.

    Mr. Seyfried was the noted author of 31 books on traction, railroad and Queens and Nassau community subjects, including his famous 7-volume set of books on the Long Island Rail Road. His last book, "North Beach, Vanished Pleasureland of Queens," was published in 2010.
    Mr. Seyfried was also a long time member of BERA.

    No public wake will be held, but a Catholic Mass will be held at 10:00 AM at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church located at 130 Fifth Street in Garden City, Long Island on Thursday, April 19.

    I met him once back in the mid 90's, a wealth of knowledge. Rest in peace sir.
