Archived from dnatureoftrain.wordpress.com Articles shared on: 07/08/2013 07/08/2013 Railroad News, Casey Jones and more from this and last week As usual, I just share these news articles links. No links are affiliated or associated with me at all. I am a railroad news junkie, and I share articles on this blog with my other railroad news junkie friends. :) My old blog at one time was receiving 300-800 views a day. - I will post current railroad news, and then below it older news.. until this years is caught up. The older railroad news maybe co posted in a similar manner but when I put the archives up will be split up into their proper years and months. It will take awhile to html code all those archives and check expired link before posting the pages up. The reason I keep summary and expired links available is so people doing research on older railroad events might be able to contact that news source to get the actual print out from their archives. It's a lot of working running a news sharing blog. :) My Prayers and thoughts are with all those in Quebec.. - DNatureofDTrain
