Finally got a chance to see the new Orpheum Theater sign (a replica of the original from the 1920’s) — it looks great! I need to stop by at night sometime when it’s lit up.
Chicago & North Western engine 1385, heading the Prosperity Special in the spring of 1982.
A couple of photos from Dad’s archives. This one is Christine, Barbra, and Steven Bloy, on Christmas, circa 1959 (before I was around).
While I was in northern Wisconsin a few weeks ago, I made a point of visiting two old railroad depots. Both are now museums run by local historical societies.
The depot at Mercer, Wisconsin, was built in 1906, and served passengers on the Chicago & North Western Railway. It’s the only remaining railroad depot in Iron County.
Today I was tempted by antiques at the MadCity Model Railroad Show.
