The GM&O Historical Society is pleased to announce its release of the original GM&O News on CD.

Richly illustrated, the GM&O News was a cherished part of being a GM&O employee, and to this day provides excellent background and reference information used by our own GM&OHS authors.  Making the first draft of history of the Gulf Mobile & Ohio railroad accessible to members is an important part of the Society's mission.

Making the history of the Gulf Mobile & Ohio railroad accessible to members took a giant step forward with the release of this two-disc set of CDs containing all 100 issues of the official company newsletter from the 1950’s.

Follow along as the expansion of online industries intensifies, facilities get upgraded, building projects are completed, and freight car acquisitions begin to really roll.   Read about the company men, women and families being recognized for accomplishments both on and off the job, and get an overview of the important transportation issues of the day as they pertained to the GM&O and its dynamic subsidiary, Gulf Transport Co.  Milestones in service, retirements, and the passing of members of the GM&O family are part of each issue.

This two CD set contains over 900 pages of invaluable historic documentation that illustrates the progress of the railroad like nothing else can.  Start your library of the GM&O News with this two disc set for $25.00, (domestic) postage paid.


 

The second installment of our release of the original issues of the GM&O News on CD takes up where the first set left off with this single CD containing all 44 issues of the official company newsletter from the 1960’s and 1970’s. Click on the pic to go to the order form.

The News became a leaner publication in the 1960’s, reflecting the no nonsense approach that management was taking in pursuing ambitious new business opportunities. The focus was clearly on getting the word out that the GM&O was moving forward and that it was a force to be reckoned with.

Fully illustrated, the GM&O News provides excellent background and reference information used by our own GM&OHS authors. This CD contains everything from 1960 up until the merger in 1972, and continues to chronicle the progress of the railroad like nothing else can.  Expand your library of the GM&O News with this single disc for $15.00, (domestic) postage paid.
