Mission Statement and Editor's Comments

You will find that this site is in various states of construction. I hope eventually to be able to present information on local railroads, including history, and historical and contemporary images. Railroads were extremely important to economic and technological development in our country. The feats and foibles of our local railroads reflect what was going on all over the country, and catalogs well the rise and fall of rail travel.

Please take a look around, and come back often for NEW developments!
