Excellent layout article in "The Northwesterner," Mitch! I received my copy yesterday and really enjoyed it. Also wanted to thank you very much for the nwprr.net plug in your article -- I really appreciate it, as well as all your contributions here, of course! Great work!
I missed the layout tours at the NMRA convention...I assume that your open house was then(?). Please let me know when your next one will be. While I'm an N scaller, I used to model in HO but I will always model the NWP. Great work and please add more photos.
Hey Mitch, I understand you will be having an open house in July. I live up the hill in Tahoe and do not know if I can make it down for that but if you have another time I could stop by, that would be great! Let me know,
Mitch, I look forward to photos of your latest work! I met the CVP fplks at the Cinncinati convention. They convinced me to use their products due to the open archetecture and ease of use. They also recommended that I stay with one brand of decoder, TCS, which I have done with great results.
I'd be tempted by N if I could still see but HO is enough of a challege!
I haven't given up on the decals, money issues have raised their ugly head. I'll let you know when I am able to go forward.
Mitch, I did some checking and found 2 shots of the McCann shelter. They are very similar. One is on Robert Morris's site at snowcrest.net/photobob/nwp.html. Bob also has some beautiful B&W shots from the 60's. The second shot is in Fred Stindt's vol. 2 on page 14. I hope this helps!
I am on a bunch of railroad list due to business including the Sn3 list, I spend most of my list time on this one. I have seen two photos, one is a 1956 photo of a small shelter with a concrete phone booth next to it. The photo is in volume 3 of the SPH&TS pulication SP Lines stations volume 3. The other is a better photo but almost from the same angle on page 14 of Fred Stindt's vol. 2 The NorthWestern Pacific Railroad.
Thanks for the cheers Mitch. I just wish I had visited the area more when things were still running up there. I had a great late friend that loved this area and modeling the NWP and now I know why. He will always be the 'master.'
Mitch, I would love to share the article I wrote on the Redwood but I'm not sure about how to get it to you! Mark, any suggestions?
