"Nice compilation, Nico - despite a whole lotta shakin' goin' on... LOL! You captured rare footage of the 1922 wearing good paint, and the 2009 with the transitional NORTHWESTERN PACIFIC + RAILPOWER lettering. Good stuff!"
"Don: I parked in the new fenced, unpaved lot accessible from E. Washington St., adjacent to the Visitors Center.
Scott: Sorry I missed you - we'll connect next time!
Dave S.: Actually, I didn't have to move an inch, as…"

I would like to use several of your recent photos in a clinic I'm giving at the NMRA convention in Portland next month. The clinic is the latest in a series I've given on modeling the NWP and they would be part of a brief review of the history of the prototype. It's possible that the Powerpoint would be posted on teh NMRA and/or PCR website or even be part of a publication. The would be credited to you by name.
