    A Quick Visit To The Chatham, Illinois Railroad Museum

    in Hobbies

    If you have ever traveled through the Springfield, Illinois area recently, you probably missed a great little railroad museum, just south of Springfield. The town of Chatham, Illinois has preserved their Chicago and Alton depot. The depot sits next to the Amtrak/UP line that runs from Chicago to St. Louis. The line is getting an upgrade to 110 mph for the higher speed program. 


    The museum is a great example of what can be done, when like minded people come together and preserve history.

    Traveling the Underground Railroad from Virginia to Ontario

    in Travel

    We'll share stories about some of the Underground Railroad and a Destination Spotlight will shine on the Faukland Islands and Romania.


    The City of Norfolk, Virginia is an important 400-year-old port city and home to the largest naval base in the world.  But, surprisingly as a southern mid-Atlantic city, Norfolk also played a crucial role in the Underground Railroad as one of the last port stops on the road to freedom north.  Much of this history is now being shared through Norfolk's self-guided Waterways to Freedom Tour that our guest, Dr. Cassandra Newby-Alexander from Norfolk State University helped to create.


    Historian and author Debra Sandoe McCauslin has deep roots in Gettysburg and Adams County, Pennsylvania.  We learned about her family history and, in our car ride with her along the Underground Railroad, Debra brought to life the voices of some fugitive slaves and the Quakers who helped them.


    Lewiston, New York was the final stop for runaway slaves from the South who sought to cross the border into Canada to freedom.  Once slaves reached Lewiston, locals helped them cross the Niagara River by boat or by foot when the river was frozen. 


    After the War of 1812, Canada's reputation as a safe haven for fugitive slaves grew because of the development of settlements like the Southern Ontario farming community of Buxton, formerly the Elgin Settlement.  Buxton was one of four planned settlements for former and runaway slaves and its founder, Reverend William King, a white man, fought other white settlers to establish the area.

    Orange Empire Railroad Museum Segment 2

    in Travel

    This is the second segment segments that I did Saturday Oct 25 2014 at the Museum 


    My tour Guide was Norman M. Buchanan one of the Docents who led me about and answered all my silly questions. WE prerecorded this show but soon realized that my voice recorder kept getting turned off has I was walking around  so I decided to present the show in segments  and hopefully add some commentary before each segment  and then let the recording speak for itself 


    I must admit Mr. Buchanan is a much better tour guide then I am a note taker and or photographer so if some of my pictures do not fit this segment then it is my fault, but much better pictures are on the museum's website. Some of the pictures on this show are mine, the really good ones belong to the Museum


    In this segment We covered the Steam crew with either Jeff and or Bill, then on to the US Mail Car, Then onto to the Pullman car, (with a Plug for the Amtrak Texas Eagle), The “Water for Elephants” Stock car


    One of my favorite side stories is the Business Car and deals that went on it. 


    The working Steam Engine that never retired, US Naval Weapons station Seal Beach California Box cars, I can never get that far away from US  Navy Haze Gray


    Grizzly Flats and Ward Kimball who was one of Walt Disney’s 9 old men who started Disneyland


    Chloe the engine and the sugar cane train story


    THANK YOU Mr. Buchanan and the entire staff at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris CA.

    THANK YOU Mr. Buchanan and the entire staff at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris CA.

    During our Mississippi swing, we stopped off and discovered that the Vicksburg National Military Park had a railroad running through it, and has since before the war.  So I asked the National Park staff if we could do a follow up inerview. What I learned was amazing, just as the spot in the park that overlooked the railroad. Join us for this week's program.
