In the thirties, any hobo
or boomer worth his salt had a moniker. Thus, this trashy little
website has a name too -The
Great Northern Flyer.
The site contains news of my O Scale model railroad, a summary
of articles I've written for the GNRHS and section displaying
other Great Northern items mostly from the 1890 - 1929 period.
A summary of each of my GNRHS Articles
has finally been posted. Some article summaries contain a few
black and white pictures not published in the articles and most
summaries have some colorful and related advertising artwork.
On the Colorful GN
page you will find examples of menus, timetables chinaware, calenders
fruit lables, etc,. More will be added to both that page and the
layout page as the
ol' pike gets built. For the 'internet challenged' just click
on the icons to navigate and enjoy.
