Ed, put this where you must, but found it interesting enough to share here. Fair use quote. Thompson Villager.

"Thompson Historical Society receives ‘collection of a lifetime’"

"THOMPSON — Few, if any, other collectors and researchers in this world can rival the fascination historians have with their passion.
Having the opportunity to work with or learn about a time period, event, or collection that perfectly fits their expertise and interests brings a unique sense of awe and pride to their careers. For Bob Belletzkie, an archivist and one of the most recognized railroad enthusiasts in New England, the Thompson Historical Society has allowed him to experience that for himself.
Belletzkie is the project coordinator for the Ramsdell Railroad Collection, which was recently donated to the Historical Society. The extensive collection offers a photographic history of railroads, trains and other modes of transportation dating back to the 1800s."
