More Online Archives Material

The GNRHS Archives has posted the following new collections on the GN-NP Joint Archive site at http://gn-npjointarchive.org

  • James A Turner photograph collection. This Greater Puget Sound and Cascades focused photo collection contains 450 items. These photos can be sorted and seen online. Medium resolution copies can be downloaded.
  • Jackson Street Roundhouse Map and Blueprint Collection has 4700 maps and drawings indexed which can be sorted by state, location, year and various other elements.  In addition, nearly 11,000 records of blueprints from GN AFEs (Authorization For Expenditure files) are now online. The images are not posted due to their large size.  People interested in a specific item can contact the GNRHS Archives at: archives@gnrhs.org
  • Walt Ainsworth Great Northern Diesel Slides Collection.  This set contains 400 color slides of GN diesel locomotives taken from the late 1950’s to 1970. Sorting by year, location, number and other subjects is provided.  Medium resolution copies can be downloaded.

These are the fruits of many hundreds of hours of scanning and data entry effort by volunteers at both the east and west end archive facilities. 

Modeling Content Needed!

Rich Remiarz has volunteered to be the new Modeling Pages Coordinator/Editor for the GN Goat.  He is looking for content.  There is a lot of great modeling being done that he would like to feature in future issues of the Goat.  We need photos and/or articles on layouts, structures, motive power, rolling stock, etc. as well as content on modeling GN-based operations.  Please contact Rich via this form (select Goat Modeling Editor) if you’d like to discuss a potential submission.
