Publication of Railroad and Rail Transit History
A more far-reaching NOARS goal is the publication of a history of all
of the railroads and rail transit operations in the Northern Ohio area
incorporating previously unpublished photos and complete maps. The text
for the book would be prepared by knowledgeable members culled from area
railroad organizations and the final product would be sold by all area
rail groups to both raise funds for future growth and to spread the word
about railroading in the Northern Ohio area.
