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.

Rio Grande Ski Train Summer Excursion 1998
On Sunday, August 16th, 1998 my wife and I had the privilege of riding the Rio Grande Ski Train on a round-trip excursion from Denver to Winter Park, CO. This is an incredible trip and I highly recommend it. All nine pages featuring the August 16, 1998, Summer Trip are now complete and online. Hop on-board for an exciting virtual trip up the historic Moffat Road!!!
