Short Line Bookends
Short line railroads are just what they say - limited length regional service lines.
Today the Genesee & Wyoming (G&W) stands tall among the short lines. But there are those that still recall the vintage era history of the B&O the L&N and countless others that were rolled up into the larger railroads before being liberated once again as lines were abandoned en masse starting in the 1970s.
We've done a limited run of these incredibly popular little slices of American history.
Each set is made from a section of railroad stock in service for over 100 years. The evidence of a century of hard labor is clear in the pitted and weather-distressed finish as well as the flow - that distinctive lip of metal created by years of use and tons of traffic across the line. Each set is individually unique, and there will be subtle variations making no two pieces exactly alike. Markings and finish will vary.
