Just think of the money Mr. Bucklin could have saved if HO or N were available. It had to be frustrating for him, none the less.

On Thursday, my wife saw one of these cars rolling down (old) SR1 near the airport.

Re: On the Road (again)

This morning, I saw another BART car on a semi trailer rolling West on Jefferson, so is it coming out of the fort, or just passing thru?

Re: Fort wayne maps 1898

Remember, when these maps were drawn up, they were literally drawn. By guys with BIG drafting tables, by hand.
