Ted Doskaris' Vignettes & Presentations

Ted has graciously allowed the presentation of his "vignettes" and other information here on this site. These are in-depth, technical reviews and observations of various parts of the hobby. You will appreciate Ted's style and insight. I did, and that was the impetus for offering a permanent home for this information.

The information can be accessed in 4 ways:

  1. The vignettes will be found referenced in the various sections of the web site as applicable, normally under rolling stock, motive power, and track.
  2. The complete web site menu structure is available (as always) by clicking the 3 horizontal lines in the far upper left of this page.
  3. The complete index of vignettes is also here in the 9 pages listed with links below.
  4. You can search for any subject with the search function in the top menu.
