The purpose of this site is to provide to you a unique look at railroading & some of the people who have helped make rail transportation possible. This site can be divided into several sections. There are stories and pictures from different motorcar excursions and events in the Midwest, and there are the history and information sections. No matter what your interest in railroads, you will find something you like here. It is my hope you will acquire a greater understanding of railroading and the need to retain rail service for our future.
Railroads were once a very important part of many peoples lives. From transporting people over great distances, to moving large amounts of freight with ease, railroads are an economical way to help keep America on the move.
Some interesting things you will find on this site include:
- "Jim's Railroad Motorcars" Excursions and stories about the people who restore and operate these vehicles.
- A large collection of Railroad Depots from Wisconsin and around the country.
- Lots of railroad history. Stories that describe why things are the way they are today.
