Welcome to

The Taxi Stand [Links Page]

Here you will find a mishmash of external resources that I think you may find interesting as you research railroading in the Streamliner era or plan further journeys through time and space.

Travel Sites

The finest personal web page I have yet seen on the Internet - when my site grows up, I want it to be just like "Seat 61..."
