On these same lines, it would be REALLY nice if the historical society would make track maps, track plans, pics, yard diagrams, etc. Available on this web page. That would be most excellent and would prob. help out enormously many of the people seeking info about the SCL and its predacessors here!!! I was thinking myself about scanning everything I own and putting it up on a webpage (geocities, its free!!) but i have relatively little, other than some timetables. If others here (or the H.S.) did it, it would be a VAST, all encompasing collection, and would really be nice. If the H.S. did it, im sure it would be first rate!
