Republic(MO) Kenneth and Mary Lou Reed have announced that they are offering a railroad book the wrote about the New York Central Railroad, titled History of the Evansville, Indianapolis and Terre Haute Railroad. Mary Lou says “we have marked down the book for the holidays because people want something they can give people that is interesting and educational”. The book has been in print for a couple years and we still get comments and orders from people across the country; even sold one to a man from France who sent a letter complementing us on the book says Mary Lou.

The railroad history book is a collection of some of my experiences as a fireman on the Evansville, Indianapolis and Terre Haute Railroad a division of the New York Central Railroad. I started firing steam locomotives when I was 18 years old in 1953. It is also a compilation of writings and history of the Evansville, Terre Haute and Indianapolis Railroad. The history of this railroad dates back to the Wabash Erie canal. There are maps, timetables, rosters, newspaper items and a lot of pictures. This railroad ran thru the towns of Terre Haute, Riley, Cory, Saline City, Clay City, Coal City, Worthington, Elliston, Newberry, Elnora, Plainville, Washington, Petersburg, Oakland City, Somerville, Mackey and Evansville. There are excerpts from a booklet titled Terre Haute Today dated 1915. The railroad is now the Indiana Southern, there are some pictures from that railroad also.

So many seniors are railroad fans and I think this book could be a perfect gift for Christmas. The price of the book is $18.00 plus $3.00 for shipping. Please send check to
