"Steven Richard Bell, please keep all comments focused on railroading and avoid any mention of current politics (this goes for everyone, really).  There are some here who agree with you and some who do not, but broaching any recent political…"

Hello Mark,

Would you check Steve Richard Bell's comments for today. He's testing the water to see how far he can stretch the envelope about politics and religion.

Mark:

Just saw that you are the West Bay w-site guy.  Take my kids over to the building frequently so I've probably met you.  You can see my g'son in the picture of our Train of Lights ride last night.

Hello Mark,

I saw these items on ebay and thought of your club...

Old photo album of trains and wrecks.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Estate-Vtg-Photograph-Ablum-50-Lot-Steam-Engine-Train-Wreck-Photos-/361768994841?hash=item543b1cc819:g:kn0AAOSw8w1X~6vz

Circa 1920's German toy train in pretty good condition

The train of my childhood, which I still have in mint condition, is one from Sears.

Six unit Happy Time electric train.  Does something like that have any retail value?  Or, is it just for memories?

Glad to join in,

Gura

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

Thank you! I will tell my friends! Do you happen to know anything on the lease of 1922? Thanks!

Mark,

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.

Thanks Again,

Joey M.

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.  dusenberryv@aol.com    Victor
