Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening whatever the case may be

Postby Jeff Livingston » Wed Dec 09, 2009 9:40 am

Jeff Livingston here, and don't blame me, Boone Morrison suggested this site. My primary area of interest is the Oahu Railway and Land Co. and the military rail operations on Oahu. I have only fair knowledge of the plantation railroads and railroads on the other islands but it's growing. I'm a member of The Hawaiian Railway Society (HRS) and was recently electrd as Historian. For the last two years I have been researching the "Dillingham Collection" in the archives of the Bishop Museum. Although I started this project alone there are now five of us including Bob Paoa, HRS Historian Emeritus and Stan Kumora, Waialua Agriculture Co. expert, who gather each Saturday for three hours of digging. The collection is huge and we have only scratched the surface. We are all modelers also working in 1:20.3.

Jeff,

Welcome to the forum and enjoy your stay. We have not begun to dig into the roads in Hawaii just yet, however if you're interested in helping with the section send us a note.
