We've always loved passengher trains and few people put on a more interesting
show than PBS. Something for everyone interested in the glory days
of rail rtavel is on this site. And be sure to watch the television
series this site is related to. We are not sure if this is a permanent
site, so please let us know if you discover it has been deactivated.
The work of the Railroad Station Historical Society, this site contains
many photographs, both vintage and contemporary, of eastern railroad stations
of all sizes and shapes. Well done photography and interesting histories
abound in this fascinating site. Being lovers of both architecture
and railroads, we know we'll visit this site often. Thanks to Fred
Jones for leading us to it.
Michael comes from a family with many relatives who worked for New Jersey
Railroads, and we were delighted when FJ sent us this link to maps, characteristics,
rules, and other information pertaining to the fallen flags of this railroad
intense state. The site also includes an interesting interactive
explanation of NORAC signal operation rules.
We spend a great deal more time in automobiles than we do in trains,
and we've come to appreciate the unique architecture found along the side
of state and US highways. Although one might argue that the expressway
is creating its own aesthetic, we prefer the buildings and images of a
time when America motored on the two lane blacktop. Many interesting
photos and an opportunity to see grant money being put to good use.
Thanks to FJ for sending us this collection of New Jersey railroad maps,
including some highly detailed track arrangements at busy terminals and
locations. Not too large as yet, but more is planned to come.
A very active New England railfan group that sponsors wonderful railroad
trips and activities.
A must site is the Nicholson Viaduct homepage. Fascinating construction
photos of this early twentieth century DL&W engineering marvel.
