Hi. You don't
know me but perhaps you have heard or seen me. I think I was in one of your
pictures of a wire damage in Milford on Metro North a few years ago. In
searching the web, this is the second time I've come across your site and I
think its Top Notch. Some times I think the public views railroaders as
another typical union job. In fact it is the tightes knit family outside of
my own. There is a respect for eachother and the job that extends from
railroad to railroad. Your sight greatly reflects that. Keep up the Great
(April 1, 2006) From our ol' Pal
Burt the Davisville Signal Maintainer..."Thank you for a great site.
I really enjoy it. My name is Burt Vanasse, Retired 2002. Former Signal
maintainer at Davisville RI. I had the pleasure of meeting a lot of great
conductors that worked out of Davisville during the electric traction
construction in this area. They were a great bunch to work with. Your site
and pictures have shown people that met and brought back memories."
(March 16, 2006) From Chris Perrone's sister Andrea....."I just wanted to thank you for the great photo and memorial for my brother Christopher. I can not tell you how much joy it brings me to see his photo on your website. He loved the railroad as do so many others. I looked at all your photos in an effort to find more pictures of Chris. He's been gone for only week and I still cling to whatever glimpse of him and his life that I can. He had railroading in his blood and I see from your photos he wasn't alone. You have paid a great tribute to all those "railroaders". One photo is better than the next. Thank you for taking the time to take the photos for so many of us to enjoy. The combination of old and new is stunning."
Kudos to all involved.

(August 22, 2002) I just found your site...I think it's great and I
really appreciate the thought that the best thing about the railroad is the
railroaders. I had the privilege of working for Amtrak for almost 15
years....before being swept out by Downs and Warrrington in 1994. I
would love to get back
