ABERDEEN & ROCKFISH to BESSEMER & LAKE ERIE

UPDATED WITH 15 NEW LINKS ADDED.

I cannot promise you that all links will remain working since I have no control over this.  To contact me my email address is jmlaboda[at]passcarphotos.info. 

  • Gas-Electric Operator's Manual  provides some interesting insights into the operation and mechanics of the old gas electric cars.  This page, posted by George Elwood to his Fallen Flags site, is greatly of interest overall. 


     
     
    Some important changes were recently made at Flickr.com that affects how a person views images and I felt it is important enough of a change to mention it here.  In the past clicking on an image or right clicking on an image provided for larger sizes to be chosen, and, as it is with the vast majority of shots linked to from this website, a considerably larger image could be seen.  Now left clicking on the download icon (shown at left) in the lower right corner of the screen will bring up the available sizes for all images, all one has to do now is to choose the size and it will load.  I hope that this info will help in viewing images at Flickr.


     
     
     
    When viewing images that are hosted by various Libraries, state-run archives and Universities keep in mind that with most you can click on the icon that looks like the image to the left to view larger sizes of the image.  While size still is limited in some larger sizes the image will be considerably larger than if it were viewed in the original pane, which helps greatly in seeing detail on various cars.  I will be attempting to edit various links to show the larger image but in the mean time this will help anyone interested to be able to view the larger image until the conversion is complete.
