Product Spotlight:

Wabash "Blue Bird" print 

This color repro print of the pose of the Wabash "Blue Bird" in Forest Park, St. Louis (see pic) is a whopping 24" x 18"; perfect for framing and display in your train room. The identical original print was most often seen hanging on the wall of many a Wabash depot back in the day, and was great advertising for the railroad. 

$12.00 for members, $15.00 for non-members, plus $3.50 S/H*

Data Files Nos. 1 - 8, inclusive

A total of seven Data Files were issued to members receiving The Banner throughout the 1990's, with an eighth being issued along with the No. 2 Wabash Modeler. We hope to offer more in the future. As can be seen from the example photo (No. 1; see pic), these Data Files are extremely detailed and are just the ticket for those modelers interested in accurately painting & lettering their engines/rolling stock for that "just right" look. The complete list of Data Files can be found below.

"Wabash Memories" DVD

This 30-minute DVD consists of half-B&W, half-color home movies taken mostly on the Wabash's Fourth District between Chicago and Montpelier, Ohio, with loading/unloading of LCL freight, MoW and wrecks. Also included is movie footage of Landers Yard, as well as the Blue Bird passenger train. This work was graciously donated by Victor Baird and Larry Lett to raise money for the WRHS Restoration Fund. All proceeds go towards that purpose.

$5.00 ea. plus $1.50 S/H

Below are some sample images taken from the DVD (click to enlarge):

Two F-7 diesels are the power for a work train on the 4th District.

This view of the Wabash's Landers Yard was filmed from the yard tower; we are looking east, towards Western Ave. and the connection with Pennsy/B&OCT at Forest Hill.

Riding along with his dad Clarence (the conductor), young Jody Montgomery checks out the train from his perch in the cupola of caboose No. 2755.

The distinctive Dome-Observation car No. 1601 of the Blue Bird makes up the tail end of the inbound train as it skirts the north edge of Landers Yard.

Oak Lawn depot print

This painting, titled "Summer of '48, Oak Lawn, Illinois," was commissioned by our late friend Dick Kuelbs and painted by John Winfield of Fort Worth, Texas. The image is approximately 13 by 26 inches, suitable for framing, and is printed on 15-by-28-inch paper. Mailed in a tube.                                                                                           

$34.00 (postpaid in U.S. and Canada)
