The standard-gauge line is called the Saint Louis Eastern and Pacific (SLE&P), and the narrow-gauge line is named Coal Creek Central (CCC). Visitors are welcome, with prior notification (no wheelchair access, second-floor). Bill was the western vice-president and then later the president of the NASG for a number of years.
