    I have about 60 depots more to post to complete my site.
    When I was taking the pictures 20 years ago, I had modeling in mind. I tried to shoot them in a way to help any one make models of them. My success at this varied.

    You all are welcome to check it out and let me know how well I did and I hope it can be of help to any one intereste in Depots. My site is at.

    Fantastic

    Hi HiJack and welcome to the -gauge
    That is an amazing project you are doing and a wealth of information. The pictures you took show all that`s needed to model a replica of the depots
    What an asset your link is.:thumb:

    Jack, first of all, your site is a marvelous piece of historical information. Many thanks for photo documents of all those stations.

    Second, your providing a link to it comes at an excellent time for me. I'm just about to begin a station building project. I haven't decided whether to scratch build it or start with a kit. Since my layout is set in the Ozarks (c. 1910), I'll be taking several looks at the photos on your site. :thumb:

    About replying to individual posts: it's really quite easy. At the bottom of each post, on the lower right side of your screen, there is a "button" that says "QUOTE." Click on that and you will be able to reply to a specific posting. Just as I have done with yours. :cool:

    BTW: I'm familiar with Rhineland and that area. We drive over to Hermann two or three times a year (Can we say, "Stone Hill? Hermannhof?" :D ). That's a beautiful drive all along there from Jeff City, with the river on one side and the Katy Trail on the other. :thumb:

    Hi All

    The Missouri Railroad Depots web site has found a permanent home.

    The old address was www.fidnet.com/~hijack. I will have a redirect page.

    The new address is www.missouridepots.com
    Right now, I have over 330 depots on the site. I hope to add around ten more every couple weeks.

    If you haven't been there in a while, check it out. I hope it is a lot better then the last time you saw it.

    I thought my original title is interesting. I now have over 330 Depots posted with many more to come.

    I know this is a hard question, but, which do you think is the most interesting of the lot?

    HiJack... Those are some great shots ! I really enjoyed all the depot pictures.... a lot of them were a real trip down memory lane. I just compared a recent shot of mine (of the Booneville, MO depot). It has been well preserved and maintained, complete with a neat Katy Line caboose off the north end of the building.

    Thanks again for those great images....

    Thanks all of you for your comments. This will be short because my next post may not be. I'm working on that tough question JMarksbery asked me.

    Stay tuned
