A Google search of "excursion railroads" resulted in 434,000 sites.  Add all the railroad names attached to museums, historical societies, private lines (such as Paperton Junction Southern), railroad clubs, live steam, etc, the list grows to about 2,000,000 sites.

This site only lists 200 North American excursion railroads registered in their database:

http://www.railsnw.com/region99.htm

Worldwide including historical?.....A "WAG" of 500,000 total railroad names might be conservative.

Good luck

I don't like straying off topic, but since it has already been brought up:

http://www.uprr.com/aboutup/corporate_info/uprrover.shtml

As of 2007, CN had 1,581 locomotives, while UP had 8,721. UP has the higher trackage and revenue.  The proposed CN - BNSF merger of 1999, which would have formed a new corporate entity called "North American Railways"  was rejected by the STB. No further merger proposals have been filed. 

In 2000 a news service erroneously reported an "alliance" between the two companies, there is no official notice of such an alliance by either railway.  CN does have an alliance with KCS for the stateside routes.

Even if CN and BNSF were to form such an alliance, UP is still the largest single corporate railroad in North America.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Union_Pacific_Railroad#Current_trackage

Longest is referring to the length of rail run not accumulative totals

Not sure when the change took place but the longest run used to be claimed by Canadian Pacific.

The changes must be in relation to the accumulation of US railroads being bought by both CN and CPR.

The lists go on and on. Do one thing - take PC off the list. it wasn't a railroad it was a disaster.

Don't forget to add the Charleston and Western Carolina to your list or the AB&C - Atlanta, Birmingham and Coast.

Here's a trivia question for which I lost the answer (unfortunately.) There was a midwestern short line which I recall may have operated in Iowa. This line used a swastika herald on their freight cars - it was an American Indian good luck sign. When WW2 broke out the swastika herald had to go. What was the railroad? (I read about this in a very old copy of Trains magazine -I am not making it up.)


Title: Re: A MAJOR list!
Post by: Woody Elmore on July 25, 2008, 06:09:25 PM
Here is the answer to my Swastika question thanks to Wikipedia:" The St. Louis, Rocky Mountain and Pacific Railroad Company operated with cars and locomotives "emblazoned with the red swastika symbol adopted as the road’s trademark." The symbol featured right facing arms and was tilted at an angle. The 105-mile "Swastika Line" operated from about 1902 to 1915, with major stops at Raton and Cimarron, New Mexico. The tracks were torn up for scrap during WWII when "Swastika Line iron was used to fight a different kind of swastikas in Europe."

I thought I remembered the line being in Iowa, but then I often can't remember where I put my car keys.

Looks like the UP owns more track, but as the maps linked to below clearly show, the CN is much longer.  All the way from Atlantic to Pacific and from the arctic to the Gulf of Mexico.  Not at all surprising that a larger country needs a longer railway and a more heavily populated country needs more miles of track.

What is the Wisconsin road with the reporting marks KGB? I want a car from it!
BTW, the 45th Division (Oklahoma, New Mexico, Colorado[?]) had a swastika insignia prior to ca 1934 and then changed it to the Thunderbird.  As a kid, I had one of those shoulder patches.  Lost.  How much money did I also loose?  I wonder.

What about the many unnamed Pennsylvania and New York Central commuter trains? And no one seems to have mentioned the southeast trains: the Chamipion, the Southern Crescent, the Silver Meteor...

Or we could have some real fun with railroad holding companies ;): Northern Securities, Alleghany...

Something that would help is if you would put the entire list in alphabetical order.  You could do this by copying and pasting it into any word processing program, order the list, and then copy and paste it back onto the board.  That would make it a lot easier to eliminate duplicates and look for ommissions.

You appear to have placed name trains into italics.  If this is the case, then you need to un-intalic the City of Prineville.  That is an actual railroad and not a named train.

That being said, here are a few that I don't already see listed:

Big Creek & Telocaset
Almanor
Union Railroad of Oregon
Oregon & Northwestern
Oregon California & Eastern
Condon Kinzua & Southern
Oregon Eastern
Wyoming/Colorado
North Coast Railroad
Sumpter Valley
Nevada Northern
Nevada Copper Belt
Nevada-California-Oregon
Eureka & Palisades
Eureka Nevada
Nevada Central
Klamath Northern
Trona
Humboldt Northern
Oregon Electric
Oregon & Eureka
Chehalis Western
Curtis Milburne & Eastern
Malheur Railroad
White Sulpher Springs & Yellowstone Park
California Western
Caspar South Fork & Eastern

There are still many more out there...

One of our newest members, "Mike", recently went to work for the Long Island Railroad, was that mentioned?

It's great to have real railroad employees who are also modelers.  I hope Mike will continue to contribute, so we can all learn more about real trains.

Yes, City of Prineville ran ALCo's with lots of Jewelry into the 80's, then transplanted the Jewelry onto a couple GP20's/9's. They now use a few ex-Milwaukee coaches for excursions, pulled by the Geeps, or on occasion a Shay, and use the GP20's for freight service...

Check again, glennk28- the YW is on the list not once but twice.  Both entries are in the bottom quarter or so of the list. 

Say hi to Conductor Roger for me!

Also, thanks to Guilford Guy for the plug on my COP site.  Much appreciated.

In my area we have the Iowa, Central, and Eastern and the Iowa Interstate Railroad.  Both are offshoots of the Dakota, Minnesota, and Eastern.  I pass by the Davenport, Iowa ICE yard everyday on my way to work.  Both the ICE and the Iowa Interstate have great websites.  The ICE even lists their customers and what they haul.
