Railroad Telephones

Postby 4123 » Wed May 20, 2009 2:37 am

Hello,
Let me introduce myself. I'm Ron Christianson. I'm 63 years old and live in Southern Oregon very near the Oregon Caves National Monument. All my life I've been interested in the railroads. I guess it all started when I was about 10, my dad showed me the round house in San Bernardeno. It intrigued me so much that I was always looking for roundhouses whenever I saw lot of RR tracks congested in one area. The only other one I saw was in Dunsmuir in Northern California. They are both gone now but not forgotten. I've been a telephone man most of my life and have acquired quite a few Railroad telephones, Dispatchers Telephones, Howlers, Telegraph etc.. Since I retired, I've started an online telephone museum and have a traveling telephone museum that is shown predominantly in elementary schools.
As a collector, I'm always looking for telephone stuff. If anyone on this forum has RR communications items, I am into trading. Here are the URLs of my on-line museum and a photos of our traveling exhibit.

I'm a member of a number of forums. I've got to say that this is pretty much the un-friendliest forum I've ever encountered. Usually when someone introduces themselves in their first post, at least one person welcomes them. Not here..... what gives??? Do you have to be a member of some kind of a "click" to get someone to respond?

No, you don't have to be a part of any particular clique. But, this forum is one of the least visited sections. Thanks for your understanding.
