Seated on a Chicago Union Station wooden bench, super collector Ron Kaminski is surrounded by railroad memorabilia from across the country.
After a career with the U.S. Railroad Retirement Board, Kaminski is always hunting for stamped railroad items like time tables, photographs, keys, locks, pins, wax stamps, caps and cap badges. He even has the windows and telegraph sets from historic stations.
Kaminski searches both online and live auctions and sales for the best collectibles, always looking to find that rare and historic railroad item.
Kaminski’s rarest and most valuable memorabilia can be seen at the Livingston Depot Museum.
