I am requesting those viewing this page to e-mail the Museum at carrollcountycchs@gmail.com with the following information:

1) Contact Name
2) Address
3) Phone Number
4) E-Mail, if applicable
5) Date of submission
6) Date of the event or story pertinent to the rails
7) People involved
8) Location, i.e. town or area; and the rail system involved.

I am interested in any and all rail stories pertinent to the Monon, Pennsylvania, Wabash, and Interurban.

Submissions can also be snail-mailed to the Museum at:
