> the projects we are considering is a series of books about the N&W in the

> 21st century. This will be pictures of trains using the former N&W

> infrastructure from 2000 to 2008. WE hope for a series of books along the

> The N&W in the Mid-West in the 21st Century

> The N&W's Pokey Division in the 21st Century

> The N&W in the East in the 21st Century


> We are also considering a series of books from 1982 through 1999 probably

> along the same line as the N&W in the 21st Century and a series of books

> on the N&W before the merger.


> The NWHS offers no renumeration to anyone other than a photo credit. A

> caption for the picture would be great, but as a minimum please include

> the date and location of the shot along with your name and address. There

> are two ways to get your photographs or slides to us.


> By email to aschust2 at comcast.net


> We need 300 dpi Tiff formats for photographs and 2800 dpi Tiff formats if

> you are scanning slides.


> Our preference however if is to get the original slide or photograph and

> we will scan it at the archives and send the slide/photograph back to you.

> Please send your slide/photograph to:



> PO Box 13908

> yards, etc. Our objective is to have enough pictures to publish books

> along the lines of:


> Structures of the N&W

> Freight Cars of the N&W

> Passenger Trains of the N&W

> etc.
