"Thanks Sean.  I usally find myself in the summer near Hoopa so it is doable. This year is different so soon, you guys are on my list.  Maybe if the fall goes well, it would be well worth it. I got the DVD from E Bay for like $25 to the…"

"THANKS Richard!  At least I now know why it is so hard to find anything out about it.  I'll look back the guys pictures and see what they have done.  Always nice to look at their work even without a reason. Thanks for the offer…"

"Steve, where this caboose came from and who built it, is a mystery! Check out Bob Hogan's photos on this list for better photos. They were taken during our trip in 1961. Mitch Valder has done an N scale model, Bob has done an S…"

PALCO/ TPLC Caboose #5

 I was watching Charles Smiley's "Southern Pacific, When the Empire was Intact" and I saw the PALCO scene with TPLCo caboose #5.  I thought it would make a nice project this winter. I really don't know my cabs, what type of caboose was this? (see the attached screen captures)BTW, I have seen the old kits but it looks nothing like this screen capture. I think it could be fun, even with the a matching Baldwin .... maybe next winter for that.TIASteveSee More

Just saying Hi.....

Hi all - Just a quick post to say hi and share a little about my interests.  I am particularly interested in the line from Scotia north all the way to, and including, the A&MR RR from about 1978 to about 1982 (particularly 1980). I am a model railroader that models this area with the focus being the Pacific Lumber company and the Simpson mill at Korbel in the post 1978 tunnel 27 fire era.  My focus is the lumber industry but I am looking at the other customers such as the Humboldt…See More

Welcome, I too am a modeler interested in the A&MR RR.  I'm currently collecting and working on equipment that feel fits the turn of the century.  I also have the pleasure of working on the real thing through the Timber Heritage Assoc. of which I am a member.  If you live locally(Humboldt), you could certainly come out to the museum as my guess and see the A&MR RR #7 and crew speeder #60 as well as the rest of our extensive collection of local artifacts.
