I agree with the previous posts. That war led many a peace-loving citizen to run for cover.

It won't. I was just initially annoyed that every time I'd look at those, the names were changed yet again with no good reason as to why, even to something that wasn't even applicable. I was labeling them off of the old AR railroad map that I have. I've taken my Prozac, so it's all good!

Oh geez, I hope it doesn't escalate to the level that crap got to (Or at all.).

RI was one of three reporting marks the Rock Island Railroad used.

(The other two were CRIP, which you mentioned, and ROCK, which was used near the end of the railroad's "life".)

RI is the reporting mark others (Including a member of the Rock island Technical Society.) and myself prefer to use.
