    Hello Rock Fans:

    Last year I posted that I want anything that has to to do the Rock Island Line. I am looking for pictures, poster, etc. Why you ask? I am trying to make a RI CD. Trying to fill a CD with 800MB of information is becoming a difficalt job! :mad:

    Please help me,
    Andy

    PS If you would I copy after this gets done, if it ever will, I'll send you a copy.

    Hey, Andy! This is a very good idea! My heart belongs to Rio Grande, but I will pass it to the friends in the club. Maybe there are some "Rocky" infiltrated! :D

    Are you sure your in the right forum for RI fans?:D :D :D

    I got some pics of some box cars taken in Deerfield Yard in Mass. and a hopper taken in Walpole N.H. But I got lots of articles in magizines if you could use them. Your welcome to anything I have that you can use. Let me know where to send them.

    Will you be doing anything on the cd about modeling the RI?

    Andy - I can post some pictures, but they're not mine to distribute. If there's a copyright on them, you would have to talk to the owner for permission. That being said, here goes..

    BDC,

    those are some nice pictures I realy like # 2.

    Andy,

    You might try and contact Jeff Prince and see if you can use some of his pictures, I've talked to him a couple time via E-mail and he seems to be a real nice guy. I'll get his web site posted for you in a minute.

    Photo #2 was my favorite, three - er - too!

    Andy -

    I don't have any original RI photos to give you - just copies of copyrighted ones.

    Unless you wanted to have a photo collection of various RI model locomotives and rolling stock - would that work? Then we would have a LOT of photos to send you!

    Thank You Everyone!

    A Big THANK YOU goes out! I thought I had all of Jerry Appleman's pictures. He must have put new ones on his site. Thanks BDC,

    Shane:
    I have been in touch with Jeff Price over a year. I have copied everything from his site. If you look at my website, wou will see some of my favorite pictures from both of these men.

    I have also downloaded from Morphes, the Rock Island Line song. This song has been sung by 5 different artist. Here's a strange thing I have been doing in getting pictures. I have been downloading them off of EBay!

    Thanks again,
    Andy

    Andy - I found a new mascot for your railroad. I know that a chicken probably won't go over that well, but who could say no to a Rock Island Red ?
