Ohio Railroad Page -
"Dedicated to Ohio Railroads, past and present - This site features photos, images, and info on Ohio railroads (and some western PA and northwest WV), as well as links to other good railroad sites. Ohio is rich with rail, but it used to have a lot more. The Erie, B&O, Pennsylvania, New York Central, Nickel Plate (Wheeling & Lake Erie), Akron-Barberton Belt, and the AC&Y (Akron, Canton & Youngstown) all ran through the Akron area. Now all that's left is CSX, Norfolk-Southern, the new Wheeling & Lake Erie, and the Akron and Barberton Cluster. This site is designed to take you back, and also deals with present operations of the roads that remain." - quote from the web site.

Parts of the West River area remained reliant on stagecoaches and bull trains until the early 1900s when bridges finally crossed the Missouri River and connected the eastern and western rail lines." - quote from the web site.
