Welcome to Vintage Railroad Postcards!

Thank you for stopping by! This is the blog for the Russell P. Panecki Collection of vintage railroad-related postcards. The entire collection consists of nearly one thousand so far with images dating from circa 1904 to the 1950s. To leave a comment, ask a question, to contribute or correct historical information, a comment box is located to the left for your convenience.

Beginning in October, 2015, the blog was redesigned to include an index of individual postcards, both listed in alphabetical order and by categories. Each page, including this homepage, has the index located in the lower portion of the page. In addition to the index, posts were updated with historical information, new postcards added from storage files, while some posts were completely rewritten or edited for corrections. Three articles have been added and are worth reading. They include how vintage postcards were made, the history of Pennsylvania Station, and the history of Grand Central Terminal.

My apologies, but the postcards in my collection and on this blog are not available for sale, copying, or for contribution to projects. Please keep in mind that I reserve all rights to the images and content of this blog.

The St. Clair Tunnel Co.

The St. Clair Tunnel was a railroad tunnel built under the St. Clair River between Sarnia, Ontario and Port Huron, Michigan. Opened in 1891, The St. Clair Tunnel Company was a subsidiary of Canada's Grand Trunk Railway and connected with its subsidiary, the Grand Trunk Western, in the United States. Here are several cards showing the tunnel entrances, the Port Huron Station, and the tunnel motors used in the operation.
