Re: PC&N Ry HOn3 4-4-0 "Neskowin"

Ross, I have only been loosely following Laurie's animation ideas because I thought the FED was too small for an extra motor. Now that I've seen what you did (fantastic!) I want to give it a try on my HOn3 FEDs. Have you written up any instructions or is there a parts list and wiring diagram? Thank ...

Re: PC&N Ry HOn3 4-4-0 "Neskowin"

Ross,
Your Neskowin is fantastic! It is an inspiration for my future conversions. I was wondering how you fit in the bell motor? Any chance of a closeup of the inside of the cab?

Thanks for sharing,
John Hall

Re: Mystery Flat Cars at Fort Bragg CA c.1893-94

The lettering on the flat car looks like P. C. Co to me. A newspaper search for P. C. Co. lead me to Pacific Construction Company. Interestingly the Fort Bragg Railroad and the Pacific Construction Company both incorporated in 1885. It looks like P. C. Co. built a lot of bridges and that sort of thi...

Carter Bros. Convertable Streetcars

Through a newspaper search I found that Carter Bros. built convertible electric street cars for a Portland Street Car Company. When I looked through John T. Labbe's book, Fare, Please! Those Portland Trolley Years , I found a photo for a convertible car made by the Stockton Combined Harvester and Ag...

Re: NPC/SPC cars in San Francisco -- 1875 - 1909

Here is the list of newspaper articles I am aware of about the San Francisco Ferry Buildings and the State Belt Railroad. Most of them are available on the Cal Digital Newspaper collection website. The State Harbor Commission Annual Reports can be found on Google Books. Enjoy! List format: Date, New...

Re: NPC/SPC cars in San Francisco -- 1875 - 1909

Dave, It seems that our research has been taking parallel paths with regard to the San Francisco Ferry Terminal and the SPC. That photo you found today is an interesting shot; not one that I had seen before. I believe that the partially seen hoist is the hoist for the apron of the SPC freight boat. ...

Re: NPC/SPC cars in San Francisco -- 1875 - 1909

There may not be any evidence for SPC/NPC interchange on the State Belt but it was the interchange of freight between the SPC/NPC that provided some of the justification for building the State Belt. The 1881 Report of the Board of Railroad Commissioners, pages 82-83, has a report on the need for a w...

Re: Mich Cal Lumber Incline?

Check out the Pollock Pines 15 min Quadrangle on the left hand side at 47' 30". It is a tramway from the El Dorado Powerhouse up the penstock to a surge tank. Water is supplied from the Forbay at Pollock Pines. Sorry, it's not a lumber company incline.

Re: Color and Line Standards

Andrew, What is the latest Map Color Key? Is it the complex one attached to this topic or is it the Map Key that is included with the Google Earth Maps on each railroad page? I ask because they are not the same. I am currently updating my maps and am not sure which one to use. Also if it is the Map ...
