Please read: Effective March 1 2023, we will raise our shipping charges. We have absorbed several postal increases during the past couple years and it is time to make a change. There will not be much change for those ordering on-line as the web calculates shipping charges based on weight, distance, and class of mail service.


For mail and phone orders, charges are based on the number of items ordered, not weight. Charges for single-item orders will increase from $6 to $7. Additional items will be charged at $2 per item. For example, if you order a single DVD, the charge will be $7. If you order two, it will be $9. This will also give us the opportunity to send more items via priority mail. (Last year, all multiple 2023 calendar mail orders were sent priority mail, greatly reducing shipping time and mis-handling.)


We have received back from dealers six (6) 2023 Rio Grande calendars. They are available only for on-line orders, one to a customer.

 Wisconsin and Southern's Northern Division

The year is 1980 and the ailing Milwaukee Road has finished shedding thousands of miles of non-profitable secondary lines to evade falling into the history books forever.  Unfortunately, that would come 5 years later.  From the thousands of miles shed some would never see a train again.  However, there were a few that had enough business to hold their own.  One of those lines was the former Milwaukee Road’s North Division in Wisconsin, which consisted of 147 miles of railroad stretching from North Milwaukee to Horicon.  Also, lines branching west to Cambria and north to Oshkosh and the segment going west from Brandon to Markesan.  This whole division was on a list for abandonment since 1977 and with help of the Southwest Wisconsin Rail Users and Development Association; a new railroad was born on April 29th, 1980.  From rags to riches we bring you the Wisconsin & Southern!

In this volume, we cover the WSOR’s Northern Division.  This portion of the Wisconsin and Southern includes the Milwaukee, Oshkosh, Mayville, Cambria, Markesan and Plymouth Subdivisions.

Motive power includes many of the WSOR’s MP-15’s, GP-38’s and SD 40-2’s.  Most of which are painted in their attractive red and silver paint scheme.  Also included are recently acquired units from the BNSF and Nationals de Mexico.  We even catch an inspection train with the WSOR’s elite E-9’s!

From the rich, fertile farm fields to the bustling city of Milwaukee, you will enjoy watching this vibrant regional railroad working across America’s Dairyland!
