  • Milk Plants?

    Hi All,

    I am looking for information/plans/drawings/photos on milk plants. I have been searching the Internet without much luck. Any info or leads would be greatly appreciated.

    Take care,

    Rob.

            You can always depend on someone around there to have all the info you can ‘milk’ to help, no matter what the project.

              Here's a few more for "milk" info. They maybe north-eastern style, but I'm sure they couldn't be that different in other parts of the US.












              I picked these up from a vendor at swaps meets. The first book was published by BookMasters, Inc. Mansfield, Ohio ISBN: 0-934088-40-3. The series of the other four books doesn't have a publisher name, as a matter of fact no info on who published those books. It tells of all the people that worked on putting these books together, but no publisher or where you can purchase them. Again I got this from the same vendor I got the first book. Scouring the model press may bear some fruit.

                Hi Bern,

                That "Creameries of Upstate New York" looks very promising ... the price is right too! I might order that one as well once I see what's inside "The New York, Ontario & Western Railway and the Dairy Industry in Central New York State."

                Thanks,

                Rob.

                  The "Railway Milk Cars" author/collaborator Robert Liljestrand is the proprietor of "Bob's Photo". He sells prints from his enormous collection of RR slides/negatives outside the Amherst Club's show at the Big E in West Springfield, MA, at the Hub Division's show in Marlborough, MA and probably at other shows. All of our local hobby shops and train show book dealers stock his books, but it isn't clear how: the first few pages of search results don't reveal an obvious web presence. But his books can be gotten via Amazon or eBay - search on his last name.
