1. Worded the question incorrectly, basically meant to say "when was the LS&I chartered?" Correct.
2. Railroad is correct, not the year.
3. Correct.

Anyone want to try to answer when the LIRR was chartered?

1. How many posts am I from passing JT? Round to the nearest 10.
2. Who was the first moderator (besides Z)
3. Where was the crossbuck photo (at the top of the page) taken, (before it was edited)?
4. How old is this site (years)
5. What was this site called before it became simply railroadfan.com?
