Greetings From Butler County

Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Richard Smith123, Jul 29, 2022.

  1. Hello, my name is Richard. I became interested in the Frisco and it's history at a very young age with my grandpa and great uncle telling me stories of the Hoxie subdivision as well as the other bootheel lines. This has spurred me to research the surrounding lines which lead me to here. My ultimate goal is to build a route in Trainz (or V scale as I've seen it called on here) of the Frisco's Hoxie Subdivision with the Hunter/Current river branch set in the 1930's or 20's. So if anyone has anything like pictures, timetables, yard or industry diagrams, or even just stories about the lines please feel free to share with me as I would greatly appreciate it.

    Welcome, Richard. There’s a goodly amount of us River Division folk on the site. Keith’s advice is a good starting point. Feel free to reach out to me via private message if I can help with anything. That said there are several individuals here who are way more knowledgeable than me. I’m only the beneficiary of their knowledges and graciousness and can only hope to pass it in with the same kindness.
