Over the years I have collected  a bunch of old railroad and railroad related  calendars.  Also have a few tractor related ones.  Each year I try to match up an old calendar with the new year.  2016 is real different and I don't have any that match.  In the last 111 years only 4 will match up;  1904,  1932,  1960,  and 1988.  If anyone has one of those 4 years I would be willing to buy it off you if you want to part with it.  Even if not tractor or train related I would be interested.  Thanks much.

huh  I thought the calendar repeated itself every 6-7 years ( If it weren't for "leap year" it would be every 7 all the time)

 

looks like a 28 year turn around....

Amazing what little tidbits of info you get from time to time. I was understanding like Trucker that they just rolled over every few yeàrs. What's really weird is that I graduated high school in 1988 and my youngest daughter is graduating this year in 2016. Guess we are oddballs for having a difficult year for you to find. Good luck in your searches.

Years with same starting weekday and equal number of days to 2016 Year Compared to year 2016

 

1904 112 years before  

1932 84 years before 

1960 56 years before

1988 28 years before 

2016 selected year 

2044 28 years after 

2072 56 years after

2112 96 years after 

Note that holidays will not match exactly. Selected year is highlighted.

 

 

And a few for 2015.  Lot of difference.

 

 

 

1942 73 years before 

1953 62 years before

1959 56 years before

1970 45 years before

1981 34 years before

1987 28 years before

1998 17 years before 

2009 6 years before 

 

Haven't found where the every 7th year works.

I had noticed that 2009 matched up with 2015 because that is the one I have kept with birthdays etc. marked on it.  I'll check in my files (read junk cupboard) and see if I have one from 1988 for you.
