Discussion/ E-Mail Groups/Lists

Last Updated 31 July 2007

Starting with the early e-mail list serve and Usenet groups, the number of railroad-related e-mail discussion lists have exploded with the popularity of the internet.  The ability to start  and host a list for free via Yahoo! and other companies have also added to the large number of list/groups devoted to rail topics. 

This is not an exhaustive list of rail-related lists, but merely a few of the e-mail lists that have a geographical focus on Oklahoma or the railroads that have operated here. (And this isn't an endorsement of any of these lists/groups, just merely a listing of the ones that have been interesting or helpful in recent years.)


Arksmook  - ARkansas, KanSas, MissOuri, and OKlahoma

Midrail - Primarily Missouri, Illinois, Kansas, Iowa, and Nebraska, but Oklahoma-related topics do come up occasionally.

Railspot - Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and New Mexico.
