Remembering the Rutland
Rutland Q&A

-Directory-


If  you have a specific query regarding the Rutland, send it to us at Remembering the Rutland and we will see if we can find the answer.

Click here to e-mail us with your question(s).

Of course if you can answer any of these questions please send it here as well. To submit an answer to any of the questions click on "mail to" link after that question. In either case, please sign your FULL NAME so that your contribution is properly credited.

If you model the Rutland I would like to stress that many of those nagging questions that arise when striving for accurate Rutland models have often already been discussed in The Newsliner, the quarterly publication of the Rutland Railroad Historical Society.  Why not join the RRHS and continue your search for accuracy there?

I receive quite a number of inquiries from people searching their geneology who have discovered that a relative was employed by either the Rutland or one of the many railroads that eventually became a part of the Rutland. Although I don't personally know of any Rutland personnel records that exist I don't want to discourage these folks from seeking out their family history. If anyone out there can help in any way, please get in touch with me.
