Greetings all,
This is my first post on this forum... just happened to stumble across it. I'm recently back in to trains, both 1:1 scale and HO Scale, after a long hiatius to work and raise a family. I am a fan of the Richmond, Fredericksburg, & Potomac (RF&P) Railroad, a bridge line that ran between Washington, DC and Richmond, VA. Their moniker was "Linking North & South". I'm a first-year member of the RF&PHS and am trying to learn all I can about it and the connection lines, especially the Seaboard Coast Line and C&O/Chessie - I hope to model Doswell, VA and the interchanges, around '75-'80. Looking for any & all info...

I look forward to learning from those who share my passion/addiction and also to share what I have. :-)

Hello Norm,

Welcome aboard. You're already aware of it, but for the benefit of other readers, the Richmond, Fredricksburg and Potomac Historical Society is a very dedicated group. You can find their website here:


When I first relocated to southern Maryland in 1979 both Potomac Yard in Alexandria, VA and the RF&P were still active. Unfortunately both have succumbed to the changes in the railroad industry.

BTW-checked out your blog, I see we have a mutual friend in John Fuller.
