This site came on line July 4-2005, and is being built by a retired Railway Carman. "Carknocker". I am always making changes, hopefully for the better. There are lots of photos and stories, and more will be added, so check back from time to time and look in on us. Please take time and look at our pages and feel free to offer any advice. I am open to suggestions. My email address is walter@carknocker.com

Keep in mind as you read the stories, on this site that they are being written by Professional Railway Carmen, who are and were undisputed experts in our field. In my opinion there is no one, who can better relate things about our lifetime of experiances, working on the railroad than us. We will try to keep it light hearted and hopefully informative in the process as well. If you ever want to know anything about repairing Rail Cars and working on trains, we can help you with that as well. Most of our stories are from actual experiances, during our careers. I have a lot of things I will get around to saying, and Carman Jim and a few others will contribute as well. We invite you to have another cup of coffee and listen to us talk. We do that very well. Book mark our site and tell your friends about it as well, and come back often.   We invite you to Email us with your comments about our site.

Most of the contents of this site, is presented in all seriousness, but it should be noted to visitors, that I occasionally try to add a sence of humor. If anyone takes offence to any things said, or done here, I apoligize in advance. We laugh once in a while, even at ourselves. Do not Direct Link to this Web Site. If you use any of our pictures, on you web site, please credit Carknocker.com as your source and drop me a line so I can see where it was used. I will be creating a page on this site dedicated solely for links to, Railroad Related sites. If you know any that merit my consideration, please drop me a line and tell me what it is so I can check it out.
