locked Southern Railway Forum


James Walton
 

Hi, does anyone think a Southern Railway forum could be a good idea? I think if we could get other Southeast railroad historical societies involved such as the ACL-SAL, L&N, and NC&StL, it could really be helpful to a lot of people.

Hi,

A place were the various subsystems are gathered would be nice. But also the option to talk (or read) about the new on the same location would be nice. (With new I'm referring to the new Norflok Southern :-) )

best regards,

Gino Damen

I'm glad you agree, I hope I gain the support of at least a few of the societies.

Are you talking about a forum for modeling railroads of the southern US and not just the Southern Railway? If so I think that would be a good idea.

Yes, I was hoping a forum covering the South as a whole would be a good idea.

James,

When it could cover the past and the present it would be great.

Certainly, discussions of today's systems, like Norfolk Southern and CSX will be expected. 

The main hurdle here is gaining the support of the various historical societies. I expect many will simply not be interested, or may wish to have people directly contact them, rather than an associated forum site.

The description of the SouthernRailway @group.io is:

Southern Railway Historical and Modeling Information Interchange main@SouthernRailway.groups.io

Southern Railway Historical and Modeling Information Interchange

A group to discuss, ask questions and provide historical and modeling information about the Southern Railway System its predecessors and subsidiaries. It will also be used to publish and distribute drawings, notes, photos and correspondence from users and the Southern Railway Historical Association's archives at the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum in Chattanooga, TN.


This site is not a forum about other groups, forming other groups or extensive conversations about railroads other than the Southern. Please take this conversation OFF the "Southern Railway Historical and Modeling Information Interchange”.
