    From Ron Williams:

    Here is the list of Frisco Depot floorplans I have. The spreadsheet also indicates if I have a photo and its era. I have now added what towns I have interchange maps.

    The interchange maps have no date on them but given some of the railroads listed for interchange I would estimate that they are early 1900's. Still interesting in that on the back of each sheet is the name of the industry that corresponds with the number on the map.

    What exactly is an interchange map? I guess what I'm asking is how detailed are they?

    Wow Ron... that's quite a reference source there. Does the bold type mean you have photos of the depot?

    <Dream Mode ON:>

    It would be SOOOO cool to recreate in V scale the Frisco lines of my region during the 1900's that have been so fascinating to me over the decades. Primarily that would be:

    The Fort Smith Sub
    The Arthur Sub to Poteau
    The Mansfield Branch
    The St. Paul Branch

    <Dream Mode: OFF>

    Fact is, I have track in place from just north of Meadows, AR all the way south to just past Maney Jct/Rock Island, OK. The entire Mansfield Branch, and the Midland Valley from Maney Jct to Greenwood, AR, and their line to Hartford, AR. I also have the Iron Mountain & Southern in place at Van Buren, AR, out to Cherokee Jct., over to Fort Smith... and onto Greenwood, AR to connect with the MV!

    I like to lay track. :)

    Richard,

    This site is a great place to post the lists for all to access.

    Ron,

    Thank you for the list. It would be great to expand the Excel file with the railroads at each interchange point. I am willing to help with the project. Now to get the interchange diagrams posted on the site.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks!

    Mark

    Richard, what does VFAP stand for? ALSO- would you be willing to make some of these available or maybe do some trading?

    You might call these "maps" station plats except they tend to be more schematic in nature. They do show the numerical locations of the industries served and on the back is the list with the names next to the corresponding numbers.

    Mark,
    Rather than use the word interchange it may be possible to list the railroad(s) by initials. Guess we have to pick an era. What I have isn't dated but based on the types of industries and the many RR's I've never heard of (surprise?) I'm guessing these interchange maps are early 1900's.

    Richard,

    I've looked at the list you posted and must praise you for the excellent job of keeping track of who the photographer was, etc. My list is sadly very inadequate in that regard since when I started this I was accumulating primarily for my own benefit and never figured I'd have an opportunity to share and need to include credits.

    Bold type does mean I have a photo for that floorplan.
