    Mile Post 18 news

    Thread Starter: Bill Anderson

    Rather than start a new thread every time something news worthy passes by MP 18, I am going to post it on this thread. Others are welcome to post their photos here if they too see something interesting roll through Edmonds. Today a private car was attached to the rear of the eastbound Empire...

    Some photos of my railfanning around the East Bay

    Re : Les Chemins de Fer du Sud de La France - Ligne de Central Var

    Thread Starter: rogerfarnworth

    My wife and I spend a couple of weeks each year in the South of France. I have become very interested in the historic metre-gauge railway lines in the area.
