    Hi Andre,
    I saw you have an online mapping service Caltopo.
    open ed your linkit.
    left top corner
    put in locaction of Sligo, MO
    pop up > my Sligo map.! great!

    How did you get started to find how to search for your first a map?

    Then caltopo havsfilters to change how the map could be displayed.
    Where is that?
    Caltopo webste requiried URL android

    I have MicroSoft 10 lap top.

      Part 1: Can you not navigate via the display I linked?

      There SHOULD be a field up top of the map that reads: "Enter coordinates or location name"

      If you see that, try typing in the name of the location and see if it will jump you to said location. Cont'd...

      Part 2: Also, you can select "Preset Combinations" down in the lower right hand corner to use different map formats.

      I can't post a picture here, so if you are still unsuccessful, let me know in the Salem Winona & Southern thread and I can post a pic of the screen at and walk you through it.

    Thank you for your Like!
    This is way back. I think this was a nice find.
    I have been tolded this is not an ETT.
    I think they moved it to a Salem Branch forum and removed it from ETT.
    It also has some other routes.
    Thanks again always for your support.

      That is an odd term. As with modern reporters, reporters back in the day didn’t know much either. I am apt to believe that the reference is to a 3-span, wood, Howe truss.

    You've mentioned your brother-in-law fired on the Salem Branch and was making the run when the first diesels were used. My grandpa said the first diesel broke a bunch of rails on its first trip, probably a GP7. I believe you said that No. 61 or 62 was used after that. Please tell me what type that second diesel was (VO-660?).

    I need to ask a question that may be inappropriate for the website. Decided in 1980 that I was going to build in HO. Bought rolling stock and structure kits. I boxed everything up and we moved. Lost interest. I have 11 copier paper boxes of HO kits and stuff and 1 box of flextrack. I would love to sell it. I have it all in a spreadsheet. I can be reached at

    Maybe I am wrong again but is Frisco Charlie originally from the Seymour, MO area and his dad worked in the B&B Department?
    On Wednesday, April 20th, 2022 a Seymour school group plan on visiting The Railroad Historical Museum, Inc. in Springfield, MO.
    If you are from the Seymour area you may have some relatives and friends in the group?

    Thank you for watching.
    Nice to meet you.
    I like FRISCO painting the most among EMD E7E8.
    I'm sorry, but the gold molding and the red paint on the tip of the cab are especially nice.
    I love FRISCO and MKT's Texas special trains.
    I'm amazed at how quickly the E7 was remodeled into a red-colored E8 type by removing the stainless steel corrugated body three years after it was manufactured from EMD.
