Hello, new member here...but not "new" to Frisco. Currently live in Rosewood Heights Illinois, which is "just across the river" from St Louis...but grew up in Ferguson...and Rolla, MO...where I was born. Great Grandpa Campbell was a "Frisco Man", who worked out of Newburg...I don't have a whole lot of information, but I've been told he "wore a suit everyday". James Riley Campbell (went by "Jim", I'm told). I know I have "kin folk" in most of those small towns down there...Doolittle, Jerome, Rolla, Dixon...ect...and spending alot of time visiting family in Rolla after we moved to St Louis, I spent alot of time between the mid sixties to the 80's roaming around town, going to "Frisco Park" (Where 1501 is stuffed and mounted :-( ) and walking those rails..so I guess Frisco is sort of ingrained in me... When Dad Died a few years back, I inherited about 3/4 of his HO Train collection...he was a St Louis boy who married a Rolla Girl, and he attended MSM back in the late 50's/Early 60's...so it was I guess natural he'd model Frisco...and I gladly added all that HO to my N and G scale railroad "empire"...it fit in, because I had not modelled much Frisco up to that point. Dad had a small amount of "memorabilia...a couple Frisco stock certificates, a collection of "Round Tuits", a display of buttons off a uniform, ect....it's the fact that it was all his that means the most. Thanks for having me...I tend to lurk alot, because there's always so much to read and learn from everyone else!
