Hi All:
I want to thank everyone for the knowledge you have shared with me about Palmyra MO and NE.
I have updated the BRHS Photo Library's records with the correct photos for each of these locations plus I have 'borrowed' a lot of the info you folks included in your emails and added it to the photo and station's description area. I wish I could have include some of those nice maps, but not today.
You can check it out by visiting the BRHS web site => Members Only section and doing a Photo Search or a Station Search for Palmyra. Free free to make any additions or corrections to my poor writing.

While working on this I discovered that I had another FSAC station book (1953) that was not on-line, and so I have corrected that. There now there are 5 different station books dating from 1938 to 1968 for your use.
If anyone has earlier copies of station books and would be willing to lend them to me, I will scan them into a PDF file and add them to this resource.

Your comments or suggestions are always welcomed. Reminder that the photo library and the station data page are open to all members to directly add provenance to them. This will enrich the photos and station data and others may share in your knowledge.

This guy needs some help.
There were/are two CB&&Q railroad stations named Palmyra. One in Missouri, the other in Nebraska. In the BRHS Flickr Photo Albums there are three photos that are labeled as being Palmyra MO. They all are very different looking station buildings.
My question to my expert friends is: Are all of three of these depot photos in BRHS Flickr collection of Palmyra MO as stated, or could one or two be Palmyra NE?
Attached are the three station photos. Also attach are two Google Map views of the likely location of each depot. And finally, a screen capture of the station data from the Q-Rail-Network feature in the Members Only area.
I am in need to know where these photos were taken so that I am correctly capture the information for them into the BRHS Photo Library's database.

I am linking the station photos in the BRHS Flickr collection to the BRHS Photo "search database". This means that when members run searches for photos of Q railroad stations it will return not only the photos in the BRHS Photo Library but also the photos in the BRHS Flickr Photo collection. The BRHS Photo search engine only links to the photos in the Flickr files. Below is an example. This search returned information from the BRHS Photo database regarding this photo and the image is 'imported' on the fly from the Flickr Albums system. The photo is not stored on the BRHS Photo server. The public photo searches will not include these Flickr photos, only the Members Only site will.

How am I doing?  Great! 372 photos linked, only 32,628 photo to go.
