The Meridian Speedway Library
As various components of this library grow and new categories are added, so will the index pattern of this on-line library. Hopefully you will find it easy to drill down different categories and find all that is here! The links on this Index will take you to specific category index pages. From there you will be able to find items on the "virtual shelves"!
This index will take you to articles of interest and/or relevance by various authors. Here you will find prototype articles that paint the picture of the territory served by the Meridian Speedway. You will also find works that serve as stepping stones for both the prototype and modeling background that I have used to develop my Meridian Speedway concept. The culture of railroading and model railroading in the South is often overlooked and generally unknown by many in the hobby. Hopefully perusing the pages in this category will leave you with a taste of this rich environment!
Since about 1998 I have sent out photo-essays in email form to friends and acquaintances. Beginning with just a few people, my photo distribution list has grown to about 1,500 people. The very first e-mails had images as attachments. Once I began posting images to RRPictureArchives.net the essays contained links to posted images. I will now post all future photo-essays in the blog of this site with thumbnails and a slideshow. As time permits, I am reformatting past essays and archiving them here. If you have any of my past essays saved and do not see it here, feel free to forward them to me as I have lost many of them over the years...
Video links to the models of my Meridian Speedway railroads in action!
Prototype Railroad videos organized by railroad. This includes links to Meridian Speedway Productions YouTube videos as well as files not published to YouTube.
While I have been uploading my railroad photographs to rrpicturearchives.net it has occurred to me that there is some risk in having my railroad photographs stored on just one web site. This index will take you categorized railroad images that I have taken or are in my collection.
Essays and images of model railroad operating sessions I have participated in.
Prototype valuation material from railroads of interest that pertain to the Meridian Speedway network.
