BOOKS
VIDEOS
CDs

                  When we lost our friend and fellow Chapter member, Grant D. Whipple on May 11, 2006, we were saddened by his departure, but we have been given a wonderful opportunity to remember him through his collection of railroad books, videos and CDs.  Grant's collection will be made available for reference through the library that will be established in connection with the permanent placement of the Best Friend of Charleston on John Street.  Prior to the establishment of the library, the Grant D. Whipple Library may be accessed through contact with the Charleston Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society at:
