    I'm Gregg and a new member from Chicago. I don't have a lot of first-hand experience with the Frisco but have always been interested in it due to the bridge line character of its operations. It reminds me of other bridge carriers like the Rio Grande, Nickel Plate, Western Maryland and Delaware and Hudson, at least from an operating perspective.

    I'm particularly interested in freight train schedules and blocking guides. Since joining, I've learned that Frisco called these Operating Data Sheets. If anyone has a full copy of these sheets from the 70s to just before the merger I'd be interested in seeing them. There's a couple of sources on the site with partial info that's close to what I'm looking for, but no cigar.

    Anyhoo glad to be aboard.

    Howdy, Gregg. Welcome aboard. I think that some members have posted some operating data sheets that show freight schedules and blocking. Feel free to search, or I'll try to post links to the documents later.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks, Tom and Keith - I knew there were a couple that are pretty rich in detail.

    Best Regards,
