I need to get back and visit as I have cousins in Boone. My father, who recently turned 85, grew up in nearby Pilot Mound.

I have not been back there since the late 70's. I have a few slides from around 1977 of the old Fort Dodge, Des Moines & Southern right of way which ran under the Kate Shelley trestle down to the Des Moines river.

Hi Bill,
I have a number more videos of the BSVRR. They do a fine job there with the volunteers and I plan to visit the new museum.
