Linking North and South Volume 3, Issue 3 (Summer 2007)
This 32 page issue highlights the history of the RF&P RR and it’s operations in the Fredericksburg Virginia area. William E. Griffin, Jr. ("Fredericksburg Virginia and the RF&P") and Dave George III ("A History of the Fredericksburg Passenger Station") provide articles. Hubert Jewell Jr. shares his memories of working at the West Hamilton (WH) Tower which was located south of the city. Mr. Harold H. Carstens, the President and Founder of Carstens Publications, granted permission to reprint “the night they nailed the night mail“ story originally printed in the November 1907 issue of The Railroad Man’s Magazine. As far as we can determine, this robbery was the only one that occurred on an RF&P train. Society member Bob Cohen provided us with a copy of the 1907 magazine which will be placed in the Society Library. Larry Duffee, also a Society member, should also be recognized for providing us with assistance in locating additional sources of information about this nefarious act. Modeling Editor Craig Harrison updates us on several hobby related issues.
