This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.
Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.
Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.
Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.
Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
What it is today
The Brookville Building is dedicated in memory of Bruce Kelly
Bruce was a Diesel Mechanic and restored the engine of the Brookville
Mike Zilka, Sr. designed the signs and had them made. They are two layers of laser cut steel. They are powder coated and should last a long time.
Our Speeder Shed is dedicated in the memory of Michael J. Zilka, Jr. who passed away long before his time. We all miss his smile.
This Injector Pump needs rebuilt for the rear engine to operate. The locomotive runs on the front engine, when this is done both engines will operate
Here is our locomotive at it's former home, the Ohio Edison Power Plant in Niles, Ohio, as it was being readied to move to our station.
Here is the switch or turnout that lets our Brookville Rail Bus on to the main line from it's barn.
Here we are jacking the track into place before spiking it to the ties using a jackhammer.
We would love to hear from and and to see what we could do or change to better your next visit.
Club member Regis Kuntz spent several months building this shed to house our Fairmont Speeder. Thanks, Rege!
Here ballast is being spread in preparation for extending our tracks. We currently have 1200 feet of track and will extend it more.
Here is our Pennsylvania Railroad Flat Car arriving on a truck.
This is our meeting room. It is the Ladies Waiting Room. Yes, in 1907 the Railroad gave the ladies their own waiting room. The narrow window in the corner gave a view of incoming trains.
Here is our 1940 Brookville U.S. Army Rail Bus in action. It was used by the Army to haul ammunition at the Raritan Arsenal in New Jersey. It took us close to 20 years to restore it.
