    • Kingfisher, Oklahoma: by John Gilmour

      John has put together a comprehensive article about Kingfisher, Oklahoma. Lots of photos taken in the teens and twenties, and a sidebar about what might be the Rock island's most elusive branch line operation: the Guthrie and Kingfisher. Railroad artist par excellence John Winfield painted the cover.

    • CLASSIC ROCK: John B. McCall

      John provided us with photos shot in the early 60s in Texas and Oklahoma, back when the Rock Island ran Train Nos. 21 and 22 between Amarillo, Texas, and the SP connection in Tucumcari, New Mexico.

      Bill Pollard wrote a nice sidebar describing the two trains' operations.

    • Collision at El Reno Forest Balm with Pete Hedgpeth

      Balm had some photograph's of a wreck at El Reno, Oklahoma in his collection. With Hedgpeth's help, he put together photos, timetables, and a map detailing the wreck and the involvement of a distant relative.

      Associate Editor Bill Pollard wrote a nice sidebar about ICC Wreck Reports that's part of the story.
