Rolling Stock Main Page
A recent project I have begun was to create an Excel spreadsheet of all of my rolling stock. Partly just to help me rationalize my fleet, but also to serve as a reference when purchasing new cars. Though I still have many more cars to add, 151 cars are currently on the list. The buttons above will take you to the main index, an example of a letter page, and a specific car page.
This concept developed into the Rolling Stock Index that I have added under the Models tab. This page has a button for each letter of the alphabet. These buttons will take you to a page listing all freight cars whose reporting marks begin with the letter indicated.
An even longer term project is to create a page for each car. I have added a few to the site so far. Car BN 449250 is among the first to have its own page. These pages can be found by clicking on underlined cars on each letter page. Most of the information fields come from the data on the master Excel spreadsheet.
Each car page will have a slideshow initially consisting of a series of "as delivered" roster and detail photos. It will be fun to see the albums grow as time progresses!
While it will take some time to add all of the existing rolling stock in the fleet to this index, it will be a goal to add all new additions to the fleet as they arrive. Effective today the framework is complete with all of the Letter Index Pages created and all of the cars entered so far on the Excel Spreadsheet added to the Meridian Speedway Freight Car Index!
