The Old Railroads of Ohio

At the beginning of each decade in the 20th Century there were fewer railroad companies than the decade before. A lesson that the young can learn from the old here is to TAKE AS MANY PICTURES AND DRAW AS MANY TRACK DIAGRAMS AS YOU CAN....RIGHT NOW!

This page is a link to other pages which describe, again in varying degrees of detail, some of the companies which have either been "absorbed by the big guys" or merged. Here we are relying upon the hard work and talent of other folks; I have yet to write one word of text about a single fallen flag. So I rely upon these pages for reference material to answer some the many questions that I have about the olden days when there were many large, grand railroads with proud traditions of public image and service as well as smaller "workhorse" regional railroads.
