RPO on the WW&F
« on: July 07, 2009, 10:28:58 PM »
    I was catching up on some old Classic Trains magazines last night and read the Fall 2006 issue on RPOs. On Page 111 (Second Section) there was this: "The smallest RPO apartment on record measured a mere 7 by 7 feet, on - naturally- one of the Maine two-foot-gauge lines, the Wiscasset, Waterville & Farmington, whose Albion & Wiscasset RPO quit in 1933..." Apparently the Oil Creek & Titusville of Oil City, PA still runs an "RPO" for special occasions and stamps letters mailed with a round RPO stamp. I seem to remember a prior discussion of this but couldn't find anything. I thought this might be of interest for the future. Discuss amongst yourselves.
