Railfan & Railroad
JUNE 2015: If you're headed to the 2015 National Railway Historical Society national convention in Rutland, Vermont, you'll want to pick up our special preview edition written by native John 'Cully' Cullinan. Louis Saillard revisits the days of shortline Michigan Northern and its carferry connection Chief Wawatam. All this and more in the June edition of Railfan & Railroad!

Railfan & Railroad - June 2015

VOLUME 34, No. 6

This Month's Features

30 Champlain Valley Showcase/John “Cully” Cullinan
The 2015 NRHS Convention is based in Rutland, Vermont,

40 More Than a Machine/Thomas Gears
The author began to see Wilmington & Western No. 98 in a totally different light when he began researching the men behind the machine.

Michigan Northern briefly kept more than 200 miles of Michigan branch lines alive and provided an important link to the Chief Wawatam ferry.

Turning Back the Clock in West Virginia
