Hi Bill,
Great site and photo's. I hope that you can help me with a project. My Great Greatgrandfather, Conductor Edwin Keyser was killed as a result of a head on between Engines 3608 and 3012 on November 5, 1926 in Millersburg, Pa. I have a copy of the DOT Report on the incident, File number 1306, dated January 18, 1927. Can you provide me with photographs of Engine 3608, Engine 3012, the Millersburg yard, JN Block Station, and news accounts and or accident photos , if available. Thankyou. Ed

Hi David!
I came from a long line of railroaders. My Grandfather Norton Keyser retired from the PA RR in 1964 after 49 years. He was a Conductor. My Graet Grandfather was a Conductor on the PA RR and died as a result of a Head end collision at Millersburg in 1926. He died as a result of his injuries in 1928. My Great Great Grandfather Frank Keyser was a watchman. Thaats all I know about his tenure on the RR. I have evidence that some previous ancestors were instrumental in the startup of the Rail system in PA.

Hi Bill,

You have a great website and resource of information. I am beginning the restoration of a model passenger car I believe to be the PPR 'Poor Richard Club' parlor car. Do you have a photo of this car? I have a small xerox version of the Pullman builder's photo. Would you also know if this car was delivered in Pullman Green or PRR Tuscan Red?

Thanks,

Rick

Hi, I presume you already have my collection of builders photos, E.14916, 17, 18, 20 and E.15585. I also have five (5) photos of the S2 180P85 tender plus S2 on the Crestline Turntable and S2 with RR Officials oblique view. Thanks.

I own a building immediately across the street from the old Little Miami Railroad / PRR depot in South Lebanon, OH. I'm trying to find photos showing the rear of my property (then known first as the River View Hotel, then later (around 1900) as Rapp's Store and Delivery service.

Even a shot showing the north side of the depot might be really helpful.

I'm needing photos to resolve a boundary question. I do hope you can help.

Bill- MTH is coming out with models of the PRR H10's this summer. The Road numbers that they have announced are : PRR #7103, 7099, 7122, and Long Island # 103, & 107. BLI is also coming out with a H10 loco this summer. Their version will have a "Lines West" tender with a "Crawford" hood over the coal area. The Road numbers they are producing are : PRR # 8022, #8304, #8421, & #9915. If you have images of any of these locomotives, you may want to put them in the "Request Galleries". Perhaps a few modellers will want to buy some images from you! I've spent some time looking through your online galleries tonight, but alas I'm out of time. Thank you Bill for your wonderful website!

With each purchase you might ask if the customer would like to donate $2 to $5 to the museum for something like operations, maintenance, etc.

Trying to stop the annoying music. I have scrolled through of the the pages and cannot find the stop/pause button. I love the hate but don't visit as often due to the music
