Product Highlight:

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. This print was most often seen hanging on the wall of many a Wabash depot in its day, and was most effective in selling tickets for travel on the famous domeliner running between St. Louis & Chicago. 

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

Product Highlight:

Wabash 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.

Cost: $2.00 ea. for WRHS members, $3.00 ea. for non-members, plus $1.00 S/H*

"Wabash Memories" DVD

This 30-minute DVD is half-B&W, half-color home movies taken mostly on the Wabash Fourth District between Chicago and Montpelier, Ohio, with loading/unloading of LCL freight, MoW and wrecks. There is also footage of Landers Yard and the Blue Bird passenger train. This work was graciously donated by Victor Baird and Larry Lett to raise funds for the 2824/2834 caboose maintenance fund. All proceeds go towards that purpose.

Cost: $5, plus $1.50 S/H

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.                         

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

                                                                                                                                                        (click to view low-res sample)
