The Stores Department still has a variety of unique Monon items for sale. Like to research the Monon? We have books, CDs, our magazine The Hoosier Line, tour books, bulletin board train orders and annual reports. One publication we have that is filled with information about the Monon Railroad is a 280 page Desk Reference Manual from 1946 prepared by Frank Cheshire for President John W.Barriger. We have a wide selection of HO scale models both new and pre-owned. Many are accurate models for the Monon and are very hard to find today. In addition, the Stores has calendars, T-shirts, caps and tumblers. Check out the Stores Department at the web address above. All sales help support the Monon Railroad Historical-Technical Society.
