Cleaning up the links

Just spent an hour purging dead links out of the boxes on the right hand side.  A lot of Railroad sites have very short half-lives.

Chicago South Shore around 1968

Some slides I just scanned from an excursion I took on the Chicago and South Shore probably in 1968. I was clueless about light and cameras.

Kato Noch VT18.16

This is what I do when snowed in for the weekend in Wisconsin.  I set up my Kato oval and run Kato Noch's VT18.16.  A model of the DR's TEE train.

Forest Park Illinois SOO Line Depot

A picture via a friend of the SOO Line Depot in Forest Park, Illinois.  I believe the B&O's Chicago Terminal Transfer RR owned the structure.  Their tracks ended just north of this picture at Madison Street and the SOO Line began just north of there.  I remember this station from passing it on trips to Hines Lumber across the street.  It was stucco building.  Unusual for a station in Chicago although common for homes in the area.  I grew up in one.
