Blogrolled: Dogcaught – A Railroad Blog

Filed as Uncategorized on August 11, 2006 6:52 am

Our new series Blogrolled continues with Dogcaught – A Railroad Blog.

This is likely not known to many of you, but I come from a railroading family.

My grandmother was one of seven children who all worked for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois Railroad beginning in around 1930 up until the last of them retired in the 1980s. They were telegraph operators, station operators, brakemen, engineers, and fireman.

My father continues this tradition today as a railroad engineer for the modern day successor to the old C&EI railroad in Illinois.

Aaron B. Hockley’s Dogcaught is a blog focused on railroad fan sites and railroad photography. He has some pretty amazing photos throughout his blog.

    Matt,

    You’re right. I didn’t know that fact. Did you know that Railroad Tycoon is one of the only video games I ever played? :)

    Oh man, I loved that game.

    My father plays train simulator just so he can drive the French TGVs ;)
