As an avid railroad enthusiast, I present these pages for others who share an interest in trains and railroading.  Additions are ongoing so you are welcome, and I urge you, to check back frequently.  I've railfanned all over so you never know just what might show up on my pages.  I hope you enjoy...

These are pictures of my dad, Harley Davis, onboard SSW RS-3 #354 taken while he was working "The Dog" in Big Sandy, Texas. 
"The Dog" was a heavy switching local on the Cotton Belt originating out of Tyler, Texas.
Harley was a fireman on the Cotton Belt 1959-1964. 
These photos were taken in 1960 by my grandmother, Estelline Davis.  Click the pics for a larger image.
