    Hello everyone, I am Collin and I live in Springfield, MO and I'm currently in my senior year of high school. I've been interested in railroads for a few years now and at first I was more interested in the current railroads and their operations but overtime I have become more and more interested with historic railroads. I am most interested in the Frisco just because of where I live I guess, but it is a fascinating railroad. I have had an account here for a while but have just used it to look at documents and never actually posted anything. I've also volunteered at the Railroad Historical Museum here in town when I can and I enjoy that. I have a large interest in freight operations, so this site has been great to find tons of information on that, so thanks to all of you long time members who post here.

    Collin, by all means, Welcome Aboard! Be sure to avail yourself of the vast store of Frisco knowledge that can be found on this forum and don't be hesitant to ask questions.

    Welcome in Collin. Always good to see someone from the younger generation join the group. I too grew up with BNSF. I stumbled on to this site one day after my grandpa telling me something about a Frisco railroad that used to pass by home. 12 years later, I'm still here, still learning new things all the time about this wonderful railroad. I think you'll find the resource availability on this website is the among the best of any organization.

    Thanks guys, and thanks for the kind words Joe. I hope I will be able to be at the museum more than I was the last few months of this season. In July I switched jobs to working part time at the The Library Center and I have been working Saturdays there so I haven't been able to be at the museum much. Hopefully I can change that by next summer.

    Welcome, I'm a Sophomore in Harrisburg, Illinois and am also new. It is good to know someone else near my age shares the same interests.
