What clinic are you doing? I was planning on going to Bakersfied, but didn't work out with my job. Great work!

In answer to your question, here's two pictures of progress on Petaluma's Water Street, circa late 1950s. More details and backdrop work are underway. I'm giving a clinic on this Saturday at the PCR convention in Bakersfield.

The group has been quite. What is everyone working on?

  • 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. 

Comment by Michael H Harrison on September 30, 2016 at 2:04pm

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:

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.
