pre-WW1 rollingstock and trainsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
Does anyone have info about pre-WW1 SEABOARD rollingstock? I'm looking for photos, descriptions and numbers. I'm also interested in finding out what trains (passenger and freight) that would have run in Florida on the SEABOARD prior to WW1. Thanks.

Al Westerfield has produced five CDs of pre-WWI OFFICIAL RAILWAY EQUIPMENT REGISTERS, 1888, 1892, 1897, 1900 and 1905. These would list, by number, the freight and passenger cars of not only the SAL, or predecessors, but all other railroads in the USA and Canada, in the year of issue. Al has a web site at: http://users.multipro.com/westerfield. On the first page click on Equipment Registers. At about $20.00 each, plus shipping, they are certainly less expensive then the prices the originals sell for these days, IF one can find 'em.
