Mike Bezilla's Homepage

This site highlights three of my longstanding personal interests.

The Page page, devoted to the Page walking dragline and its place in the coal-mining heritage of central Pennsylvania circa 1970. The Page dragline was truly a classic of American engineering design and technology. This site also recalls the coal-related heritage of the Penn Central Railroad's Clearfield district, which hauled millions of tons of strip-mined coal to market.
Bellefonte Central Railroad. I am co-authoring a history of this Centre County carrier, which originated more lime and limestone tonnage than any other shortline in the nation. The BFC played a major role in shaping the history of Centre County and was the only rail outlet for Penn State and the community of State College.
Mike's Bag O' Cats. No website is complete without at least a few cat pictures.
