    I just stopped in Meldrim in search of information on my Grandfather who was a RR Engineer for the COG railroad who lived at Meldrim. died 1919 I spoke to a man who lived I believe at this building who said is was an old RR building. Russell King

  2. I lived in Meldrim for 37 years, and still live nearby. I have taken many photos around the town, including a few of this, same old store back before it was renovated to the state seen in this photo. If you’d like to use my earlier photos of this old store, I would gladly send them to you.

  3. Just fantastic Brian. You are such a treasure. The rail disaster was most moving. All the photos are great, as always.
