My papers pre-1896 now up for viewing.
Earlier this past week, I had a former Southern Pacific operator contact me about train orders. He and several other family members had at one time been employed as agents and or operators on the Los Angeles Division. After scouring through my collection, I came up with some of interest, including a few he and family had copied. It's always a lot of of fun exchanging emails and learning employment history. Sometimes they can have somequite fascinating tales to tell.
Anyhow, I've created

I have uploaded some views of depots to my web site:
Look in the "Assorted Depots" section.
These were all taken in the past few years, in western Montana and Washington. Much has changed. Views are now partly obscured by trees, brush, other buildings and refuse. But at least they survive. Some poignant memories stirred after all the years now gone by.
Indeed. These initials almost always bring into mind "Chicago & North Western" to the majority of fans. But there were actually others. California Northwestern was one. And also the Carolina and Northwestern yet another. I'd not be surprised to learn there were others....
These two companies now on my web site to explore:
Uploaded a couple more to my web site tonight. Both companies which have "Denver" in their company names;
Denver, Northwestern and Pacific RY;
The Denver and Rio Grande Railroad.
With new pages for several railroads: Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville; Narragansett Pier RR; New York Central & Hudson River plus a page for the New York & New England RR.
Many more to come from that region.... :tb-biggrin:
A few more additions to my TOUR pages. Scattered all over the maps this time.
New are entries from the Tela Railroad of Honduras, Temiscouata Railway in Canada, plus US operations both dated 1909 from Texas Central RR and fabled Yosemite Valley Railroad.
