Re: Freight car archives, was: The growing problem of erroneous captions

One other thing I'd like to mention:

Yes, in many cases it's not very convenient to search archives for specific things.

But: it is there and *accessible to the public*! And THAT is the key important thing.

All the corporate files of the Morrissey, Fernie & Michel Railway ended up with someone in Alberta, who now refuse any and all access to the documents, by anyone, apparently for fear of damage. With this policy, they may as well just dump it all into the sewer, for what good (none) it's doing anyone like this.

One wonders how much other information folks on this list would love to have access to is "lost" due to such policies...
