LETTERS TO THE EDITOR
Thanks for the update and another stellar edition of the CRO. You might want to add the link for the Canadian Museum of Rail Travel situated here in Cranbrook in the Museum section of the next CRO. Garry Anderson has worked tirelessly for the museum and has earned the Order of Canada for his excellent accomplishments. http://www.trainsdeluxe.com/
Again, keep up the great work.
Added Kevin and Thanks - William
I really enjoyed the SOUTH OF THE BORDER and CANADIAN RAILWAY HISTORY sections in your March 2012 CRO.
Great work Will!

Cheers Wayne! I also enjoy reading your emails and those classic NYC, NH, and PC images. -William
A couple of typo’s in the CRO MARCH issue in CP NEWS:
The photograph of CP GP38-2 3018 at Bangor, Wisconsin is on the Tomah turn assignment “G68”, not Q68. The photograph of the CP 8823 at Tunnel City, Wisconsin isactually on train “199”, not 119.
Great website, I post CRO on the bulletin board here in the depot at Portage for the CP employees.
Keep up the great work!
