Railroads of Madison County website
Posted by rogerhensley on Saturday, November 22, 2003 10:53 AM
Included in the site are photo pages of current railroad activity including Sperry Rail Cars, track inspection cars and railgrinders. There are photos on the Big Four Memory pages dating from the turn of the last century through the 50s and 60s and the same can be said about the Michigan Division and South Anderson photo pages. There are even mechanical drawings of a number of yards, scale drawings of Big Four cabooses and a visit to (now) CSX Big Four Avon Yard.

But I think that one of the most impressive features of the site is the Memory pages containing a number of memory stories from railroaders about operations near Cleveland and steam and diesel operations on the Big Four Michigan Division including Water Stops and locations and the firing of steam.

How does this pertain to modeling? There are train wrecks and derailments and from paper forms to hand signals, and history and photos of NYC, PRR, CI, NKP, CIW, PC, CR, CSX and NS, I invite you to take a look and read some fascinating railroad memories. at http://madisonrails.railfan.net/
