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.

At its peak, Council Bluffs, Iowa, was served by eight major railroads, making it the fifth-largest rail center in the United States. Trains of Council Bluffs and Omaha documents the dramatic impact that new technology had on the railroads serving these two Midwestern cities in the mid-20th century. It was a time when diesels replaced steam power, and streamlined passenger train travel reached its zenith. Railroad enthusiasts Carl Hehl and Art Zimmerla, who photographed the great transition, have the best of their color photography presented in this testimony to an era that forever changed an iconic American industry.
