By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
06:16AM / Monday, February 20, 2017

The railway is a volunteer-run organization that offers rides through the summer and fall in North Adams. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Some 9,600 passengers rode the rails between North Adams and Adams during the Hoosac Valley Service's freshman year.

The 8-mile ride from the city to Renfrew and back in a restored 1955 Budd car kicked off in October 2015 with a few pilot rides. It returned for a few more in December and then went full speed ahead on Memorial Day weekend last year. The nearly 10,000 passengers is more than the Berkshire Scenic Railway Museum carried during its first year in its old home of Lenox, according to President Jay Green.

Pittsfield Officer to Carry Torch in Austria For Special Olympics World Games
By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
06:39AM / Saturday, February 18, 2017
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The job of a police officer means dealing with people on their worst days, day after day.   And it wears on the officers. Eight years ago, Officer Darren Derby started getting involved with the Law Enforcement Torch Run fundraising efforts for the Special Olympics. He's raised more than a half-million dollars in support of those athletes.   He does it because he feels those athletes do more for him than he could ever do for them. They give him a joy that gets torn away from officers on a daily basis dealing with the worst of the worst.   "The job itself brings a tremendous amount of stress. A lot us wonder 'is this the right job for us,
