"We stopped by The Train Shop yesterday and was delighted to discover one of these. I found one prototype photo from an earlier era (30-40's?) and the model looks pretty darn close. It's a 1919 car with a 8-58 repaint with Gothic lettering.…"
"Anyone ever modeled the Interurban? I'm gathering information so I can plan my next layout. It will be a Marin County based, set between 1925 (ish) and 1935 (ish) so as to include as much variety as possible: narrow gauge, dual gauge,…"
"I found this Red Ball kit on ebay, I couldn't resist. Don't know if I well ever build it but I thought it was cool. It is interesting how many manufacturers have don the N.W.P. Over night scheme.
Any body know when this kit was made? "
"I removed your comments, Fred, as they're focused on speculation about the motives and characters of others rather than on the NWP or railroading (and the basis of your speculation is tenuous, in any case). This same behavior was seen in…"
Thank you Mark. I'm glad to be a part of this historic line. I think the membership will find my profile interesting. I'm in the excursion train business and we are launching the service between LA & Vegas later this year. www.vegasxtrain.com I think there are some excellent possibilities on the NWP as well for a wine train. More to come on my profile. Interested to see how the members feel about it. - mb
Just an update for you here. I resolved my profile pic upload problem with the help of a forum on the NING website. It said that usually when a profile pic fails to load it's a browser problem so I switched to Google Chrome as they suggested and problem solved. Just wanted to pass this along for you in case you get the same issue with anyone else.
Hey Mark, is there any news on the northern end of NWP? I heard about a proposal for a tourist railroad, did that ever get into action? I was also wondering when SMART would get up to healdsburg or Cloverdale, its been too long since a train has been up there. Ok, final question, :P. Is the Russian River track still in good shape? I mean, if it was, we could send a repair train up from the southern end, and we could slowly repair the railroad.
I am seeking to get some of your SMART videos to add to a video I am making about SMART construction. I do not live in your area so what video I have is when ever I am there. I need the operation of the SMART cars which I have seen on this site. Is there a way to get them off the site or do I need to buy some from you? Please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org Victor
