This index lists all of the posts on this blog prior to October 2015. These posts consist of content I originally posted on my old website by May 2010. They are not listed in the order posted on the blog (which is approximately the order I posted them on my old website) but instead are organized the way they were on the old website. Future posts will not be added to this index.
"Freight railroads in the United States have been proposing mergers since the beginning of this century. While many of the mergers of the past were intended to ensure the survival of the railroads, the mergers of today make successful railroads even more successful."
"'There’s something about a train that’s magic.' If you have ridden a passenger train recently, you might recognize those words as a slogan for Amtrak, our national passenger railroad. Soon, however, that magic may disappear. Congress has declared that if Amtrak is not making enough revenue to support itself by 2003, it will be privatized or liquidated. With less than 2 years before the deadline, Amtrak is still in the red. Can its 'magic' save it, or will the government make Amtrak’s final last call?"
A quick look at North Dakota's "Magic City," featuring the old and new railroad depots and the busiest railroad crossing in North Dakota.

During the summers of 2003- 2005, the State of Oregon & the Portland & Western Railroad ran an excursion train along the Lower Columbia River from Portland to Astoria. Follow it on its journey, and learn about the communities along the line.
On May 20, 1956, the Spokane, Portland & Seattle steam locomotive #700 pulled a special train to mark the final run of all SP&S steam locomotives. It was called the Farewell to Steam Excursion. But, it wasn't really the end for #700. On June 10-11, 2006, #700 ran along the Springwater Corridor in commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the 1956 Farewell to Steam Excursion.

A. C. Gilbert set several world's records, won an Olympic gold medal, obtained 150 patents, and even saved Christmas, and yet he has largely been forgotten. Here is the story of this great American and his achievements.
The Chelatchie Prairie Railroad, operating out of Yacolt, Washington, now has an operating steam locomotive! On May 27, 2007, I went to Yacolt to see and ride behind it.

The Logan & San Miguel is a fictional railroad in central Oregon. A portion of this railroad is modeled in the basement of my parents' house, specifically, the portion including the railroad's namesake towns, as it would have been in September 1969. This considers the L&SM to be an actual railroad, even though it is not. Learn more than you wanted to know about a railroad that isn't real.
