I recently scanned my small collection of railroad postcards and thought you all might enjoy seeing them!  I scanned them front and back so you can read the descriptions, know who took the photos, who published them and owns the copyright.  Enjoy!

Aside from one postcard, these are scans of 8 by 10 glossies in my collection plus a pair of rare notepads!

This is a mini album of postcards from the Warther Carvings Museum that I treasure.  For many years it was my only way to see his magnificent work.

A Cleveland Transit System card, an RPO pass and an N&W rulebook.

There was an almost full circle roundhouse between lables for Collingwood and Linndale.  Which location was it?

Full circle roundhouse was at Collinwood.  Linndale's was "only" 39 stalls.

Collinwood is the one with the opening facing the camera and Linndale is the one with the tall smoke stack.

Collinwood was also where the Century was serviced.  The train came through in the wee hours of the morning so there was no need for it to go through CUT.

Oh, I thought the roundhouse with the opening facing the camera was Roanoke.  Thanks for clearing that up.

Hello, Penny

Thanks for sharing your images of local interest for this fellow Clevelander. Thanks to my dad's interest in railroads I spent my "wonder Years" on the wooden stairs that descended from the E. 152nd. St. bridge to the yard office at Collinwood Yard. He would take me along on our visits, usually weekly sometimes more often.

I grew up in the neighborhood of St. Clair and Eddy Road which was within the triangle of trackage formed by the Nickel Plate, Cleveland Short Line/C.U.T. and the NYC Lakefront main.

While this steam fan trip was just a bit before my time (I was age two then) I like to look at it knowing it was taken only a mile or so from my house.

Here I am just barely tall enough to reach that grab iron while checking out a Nickel Plate caboose. Note the matching red pants (it must have been my mother's idea Whistling).

Thanks again,

regards, Ed
