Maybe with the increase in funds cars such as the "Silver Beaver" could now be brought to IRM.


Brian L. about More on the Dover Strait
Mon, 02-08-2016 05:06
Ted, "Interchangeable" is a relative term here. I personally dug out 4 or 5 nearly identical tables from a car that is used for storage, but the [...]

I would like to see a turntable and round house at IRM. Many of our younger people have never seen this. Is this in your future plans?


Ted Miles, IRM Member about More on the Dover Strait
Sun, 02-07-2016 12:34
Folks, Don't you just love the fact that Pullman used interchangeable parts in their cars! It is so great to see the paint coming off and [...]

Patrick about The Black Tie Event
Fri, 02-05-2016 17:59

Matt, We already own the RoW to and just east of Coin Station Road in Huntley. The bridge is the biggest hurdle at this point, and we don't see a need [...]


Matt Maloy about The Black Tie Event

I know this would be very costly and almost impossible to do, but would the museum ever consider trying to expand their "mainline" all the way to [...]
