Industry Review

I decided that a little blog (re)organization was in order, so the previously scattered "Industry Review" series is now indexed in one handy location on this page.  This blog began in April of 2013 and most posts before then were largely conjecture based on what little information I had.  All of that changed in September of 2013 when I obtained copies of Frisco industry diagram documents revised to 1972.  With that, I could research the actual companies served by the railroad near my intended modelling era.
