    Hi Fellow Rail Fans!

    I recently started an online Railroad Museum, and thought some of you might be interested. It contains articles, history, and photo's about American trains and railroads.

    You can find it here...

    Let me know what you think. It's just starting out, so there are only a handfull of articles right now (My brother and I are writing them ourselves), but over time we hope to have quite a lot of content on the site.

    My office is in Hillsboro, WI.
    I have been told that it was one
    end of the worlds shortest narrow scale railroad.
    Said to be in th Guiness book but I haven't researched.
    I can see the old bed (Now a stupid bike path) and the
    area where the turn table was located.
    Steam was the main power until the 60's and then they
    ran an opposing cylinder Plymouth.
    I have some pictures of the area past and present and
    would be willing to verify the records and such.
    Is this something you would be interested in?
    I also am in the middle of alot of history with the Milwakee Road,
    Wisconsin Central/Southern, SOO and so forth.
    Let me know if you are interested.

    Where's the Rock Island Line? :D I saw on Ebay a few days ago a newpaper article about Jesse James shot dead while trying to rob a Rock Island passenger train!:thumb: The Rock Island has a rich history in the Mid-west and South-West United States.

    "In 1882 Jesse returned to Missouri, assuming the name Thomas Howard. He had bought a house in St Joseph, and was there planning another robbery with Charlie and Bob Ford. During the conversation, Jesse turned his back to dust off a picture; Robert Ford then shot Jesse the back of the head , killing him instantly. Robert Ford committed the murder because he wanted to collect the reward money being offered for Jesse's capture."

    I guess ya gotta be careful on Ebay!!:D :D :D :D :D :D

    I'm sure you're right about the Rock's history, Andy, but AFIK this is the accepted version of
    Mr. James demise, and it is his remains under his tombstone.:thumb:
