B&M,

Here's a couple of old (defunct) RR's you might want to consider adding to the list:

Old Colony Railroad ... serviced RI, eastern MA ... eventually sucked up by the NY, New Haven & Hartford. A small portion of the rail still operates as a tourist train in Newport, RI.



and ...

The New York, Westchester & Boston Railway ... big plans, small achievements. Never made it out of Westchester, NY, let alone anything close to Boston. Also sucked up by NY, New Haven & Hartford. Many of their platforms, stations, etc. can be found in ruins, overgrown with weeds in various sections of lower Westchester.

Reckers,

Thanks! Interesting lists / history there. Lots of defunct railways, though ... makes one wonder how anybody ever makes any money in the railroad business?!?

Much appreciated,

TJ

I think it was a case of little fish eaten by bigger fish eaten by biggest fish. The old L&N, my favorite, gobbled up a lot of the small rrs in the south and southeast....till they, in turn, were acquired by CSX. I guess that's part of the romance of it----if the old ones we get excited over were still around, they'd be contemporary. Everyone loves a Studebaker, but no one gets excited over this year's Ford or Chevy. Glad you like them.

Hmm, I just tried it and it worked for me... Maybe you missed part of the link when copying it? Sometimes part of it is hidden on the properties window-https://www.modeltrainforum.com/gallery/files/1/9/0/11lsi1.png
