n. 1. One that is odd. 2. The state or quality of being odd; strangeness.

Many people take photos of engines and even cars, but most stop at that. I, on the other hand, just love to shoot things that I may want to model in the future. I love to model details and have people say, "Must have made that up...never seen a real railroad do that". That's when I whip out the picture to show them that indeed the real railroad did.
(Caution: This tactic does not make many friends :-)

The Oddity of the Month
Kumler, IL.

Kumler, IL. Ghostown with no ghost. Located southwest Bellflower, this is all that's left of Kumler. (Bellflower is shown as Belle Flower on the 1898 Illinois railroad maps.) It was located on the Illinois Central line running from Gilman to Springfield.
