  • Thank you Mitch! I didn't think it was authentic. I typically model the Eureka Southern era and came across this while looking for things. I knew the The Clark and Wilson Lumber Co. in oregon had a caboose that looked close to the model in question when I tried to research it out.

Michael, your model doesn't have a Pacific Lumber prototype. The real TPLCo caboose is shown above in this fine photo from Cyrus Gillespie.

Does anyone know if this model is an authentic Pacific Lumber Company caboose? I haven't seen any pictures of it in real life, that's why I'm questioning it before I pick it up.

They are manufactured by this company: http://www.yeoldehuffnpuff.com/

They seem pretty cool.

Okay, here's another. This is from a branch line that connects with the NWP mainline on Ron's layout. Note the "trim saw" inside the structure. I know nothing about trim saws but Ron told me that's what it is.

Every time I think about building the Willits station, I get the shakes! I look forward to more photos of Ron Learn's layout! Thanks Ed for sharing.

Neat shot!  More, please.

Here's a shot from Ron Learn's HO NWP layout in Santa Rosa. The Willits depot is scratchbuilt as are most other structures on his layout. I have a few more that I took last May. Ron is still busy working on scenery.

Spectacular modeling, guy! You've very well captured the feel and looks of Scotia Bluffs, that stretch of the Eel and the railroad.

Comment by Mitch Valder on July 10, 2016 at 2:08pm

Same train coming off the Bluffs, heading for Scotia.

Comment by Mitch Valder on July 10, 2016 at 2:07pm

That same freight is caught later crawling across the 15 mph Scotia Bluffs trestle.
