Re: The Los Angeles & Independence Railroad

300 articles, eh? Wow... That might be enough information to write a book about the LA&I!

And a narrow gauge railroad proposal too? Most interesting...

Re: The Los Angeles & Independence Railroad

I would also like to know if there was ever a rolling stock roster recorded for the LA&I, as in how much freight stock the railway owned before being absorbed by the Southern Pacific and Pacific Electric in 1877. I do believe there were at least 6 flatcars and a boxcar, perhaps constructed by the Ce...

Re: Nevada Standard Gauge to Tonapah

If this is the thread to talk about the Tonopah & Tidewater, I'd like to bring up some research I've been doing on which engines could've carried the No. 2 and No. 3 for anyone who might be interested. Apparently the T&T bought a Dickson 2-6-0 of Lackawanna Railroad heritage, formerly their No. 671,...

Re: The Los Angeles & Independence Railroad

I am also interested in reskinning the old Cooke 4-4-0engines in Trainz for Gunslinger's project, and I would like to know if anyone here might know what liveries these engines would've carried during their LA&I/SP days?

Drawings for Santa Fe 2-6-2 1050 Class No. 1073

I recently came across some drawings in Model Railroader Magazine from January 1986, and found some plans for one of Santa Fe's 2-6-2 Prairie locomotives of the 1050 Class, No. 1073. I have been on the hunt for plans like these for a while, as I could use these plans to model #1010, famous for the "...

Re: Aspgrove OR. narrow gauge logging railroad

Evening all, just thought I'd bump this thread to bring to light some information I've been scoping about on this line. I've been passing through the Chiloquin area to get a deeper dig made into the mysteries behind Modoc/Forest Lumber and was even able to locate and trace a section of the standard-...

Re: Design differences between SPNG locomotives Nos. 8, 9 an

@Loco112: I see. I shall make a note of this, I have already talked to the head of the society once and he said they barely have anything for blueprints regarding No. 18 unfortunately. I do have the entire Baldwin locomotive specification sheets I have gathered available for public domain. Also I ha...

Design differences between SPNG locomotives Nos. 8, 9 and 18

I have been looking at the designs of the SPNG (ex-NCO) steamers, Nos. 8, 9 and 18, for a sprite scale model I was hoping to make off the three engines, and I was curious to know some things about these engines. Nos. 8, 9 and 18 have very similar design features, that I've noticed. Nos. 8 and 9 look...

Re: Origins of the Borate & Daggett RR rolling stock

Interesting points you've made here, Randy. Indeed, though based off of measurements I've made of the cars in the photographs, they appear to be about 21' or 22'... I could imagine that the pairs of gondolas were built by different builders, of those Smith would be familar with from past orders for ...

Re: Origins of the Borate & Daggett RR rolling stock

B&D #2 Francis hauling borax in Mule Canyon, engineer Jerome Connolly in cab, circa 1907_fixd2.png It is said that these gondolas are similar in design to ore cars built for the Tonopah Railroad and the Pajaro Valley Railroad, but have not found photos of these certain cars to compare. As for the f...
