Thank you for posting the link to some excellent post cards, I've enjoyed looking at some of them. I have a few post cards in my collection but not a large number of them. I think there are a good number of post card collectors. I remember one old timer in Connecticut who had a huge collection of them. They might well have quite a bit of value to them too. My big item is timetables and more timetables.

Glad you enjoyed the postcard collection. I'm amazed at how many I've acquired since I started collecting back in 2010. I have a few timetables myself, but my specialty is Postcards. There was a guy selling of his deceased father's PC collection from Munnsville, NY. It was incredible! I was able to afford a few gems from time to time, but many went for $50-100! Feel free to email or send a private message, or anyone else for that matter if you want to exchange want lists. I collect anything pertaining to NY state railroads, particularly postcards from Oneida, Madison, Oswego & Onondaga counties.

Well..I do maintain a facebook page dedicated to the M&OL. So my focus is mainly the Marcellus & Otisco Lake Railway or their boat the Fontney. They had a series of rppc produced around 1907-08.But I would also like to see the trolley line that also had a station just up the hill from the M&OL station in Marcellus

Cool! I'll keep my eye out for anything related to Marcellus, or the M&OL RWY.

[url]trolleycards.blogspot.com[/url] with several hundred New York State trolleys.
I have written about 20 books on local railroads and am librarian-archivist for the Central NY Chapter, NRHS. Come to our meetings once in awhile at the Art & Home Center at the New York State Fairgrounds, 3rd Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m.

Wow great Flicker collection! Love the old station photos and the abandoned ROW photos. I am sure a lot of time went into it all - thanks for sharing!
