I gave up the Java script method of 'hiding' email addresses from spam 'harvesters', because some browsers have strong security settings and don't allow it to work. Send email by putting ' bbok ' in front of
and make it look normal.

Next is the link to my Sky_Hi_Point kite aerial photography (KAP) index. Usually, non-railroad topics are on this other page.

link of the month,
tunnel at Buncombe , Wisconsin.
For many years, I thought Wisconsin only had 8 railroad tunnels. Now I see there's two more.
And the total is at least 11 if you count both abandonned CnW tunnels at Tunnel City. And I haven't confirmed another north of Richland Center (not to be confused with the La Farge / Tunnelville Road tunnel)

To my collection of LINKS, mostly about railroads, ships, industrial history, and cameras.

I started using a new free site counter in 2006, and if anyone has problems with advertising or junk showing up because of this, let me know. I got the link from the Great Northern Empire site, and it seems to work good there. Nice link to get your own digits.com counter

Next CD picture project
Chippewa Valley Abandonned Railroads. 95% done as of Oct 2007, and I'm only 96% done with it as of 2009

My Beginner's Advice about How to Make a Web Page, with a Fill-in-the-Blanks Web Page to make it easy. I try to encourage people to make web pages instead of e-mailing pictures.
(Yahoo Geo-cities also can help, and offers 15MB free web space.)
and Next Generation has 350 mb free web space with less advertising.
