Thanks W@Z! And thank you for the link.

I have always been interested in railroads. Probably 20 years ago, got interested in the CK&S which ran through Kalamazoo and which served the KVP company. Interest in KVP turned me onto meeting a former KVP employee who wanted to rescue documents from the engineering department. While on one such rescue mission, I started to ask the former KVP head engineer if the engineering department had any railroad documents, and the first drawer I pulled open had "the mother load"!!! Such as this photo.
