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.

Each page, including this homepage, has an 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.

Windham Junction, New Hampshire

This is a circa 1905 unused card showing the Boston & Maine station 
at Windham Junction New Hampshire where two lines crossed. This 
card has a good bit of details: ball signals, train order semaphore, water 
tower, water crane, double-sided freight and passenger station, and
train pulling into the station as well. The colors in this card are soft and
rich making for a more artistic and less photographic scene.
