interurbans, US Civil war era, structures and much more.

ADMIN. NOTE: Somewhere along the way, I seem to have become the owner (or at least co-owner) of this list, indicated by the blue crown symbol next to my name.

Also, if a msg you post doesn't show up right away, your membership is probably set to needing msg approval, under old system. I'll approve appropriate msgs ASAP, and re-set your msg setting.

Thanks. Jim Flynn
