This one can be a pretty broad topic. There are trains in general, local railroads, trolley lines, etc.

Love those New England train and trolley post cards! Based on the pictures, I assume it must be 1920's or 1930's. Too bad the experience of traveling by rail are so limited these days.

Crossed over those train tracks many times in Rutland, Nells. Great postcards. Are they postally used?

Beautiful postcards!

A friend of mine that used to be in our local stamp club was more in to model railroading and also collects postcards from the same theme. If he saw these cards, I assume he could also go into gauge numbers, the whole bit. A true specialty to say the least.

Unknown:
came with slip of paper,
assumed to be somewhere in Tasmania
Australian Diggers prior to embarkation to Palestine.

A true Aust railway buff could probably identify the carriages.

It took some digging, but here are several cards from a family archive. They come from the period shortly after my grandparents were married (1905) and lived near a couple of small towns in North Dakota - Noonan (which still exists) and Kermit (which disappeared completely except for a lone elevator) and were only about 2 miles apart. It also shows the station of the small town in Saskatchewan that they and now my father moved to in 1911.
I thought they might prove interesting as they are of that class of postcards which took a personal photograph and printed it, not as a photo, but as an often captioned postcard to mail to friends.










Not really a train but .... This is the entrance to the Truax Coal Mine near Noonan, ND. Some members of the family worked there in the early 1900's and, from the look of it, that might have been incentive enough to move to Saskatchewan.



The elevator and the station were brand new. And my grandfather worked as a carpenter building them when they first arrived in this town, Macrorie, SK., in 1911.
