Our Eleventh Year on the World Wide Web!

Main Page updated Sunday, October 19, 2008
Internal page updates

from the Webmaster :

This site is a repository for modeling and historical information as it pertains to the former Detroit, Toledo and Ironton Railroad and is no longer undated regularly. The most recent and up to date modeling and prototype news, as well as access to hundreds of fellow modelers can be found on our DT&I Modelers Yahoo Group email list (see the link on the menu). If you're not already signed up I highly encourage you to do so.

If you have modeling information or a related photograph that you'd like to see posted here on the front page of this site, please direct them to me, Dave Mikulec at (be sure to replace the _at_ with the @ symbol).
