Re: Mohave & Milltown unknown locomotive

Randy - Aside from the historic value of the image of the locomotive on the barge and the little sternwheeler behind it stands as a wonderful modelling subject. Thank you for finding and sharing it with us. BTW, the image, color cahrt and Baldwin spec sheet(quite readable) represent another nice pac...

Re: Image Gallery access

Thanks Andrew. Just wanted to know if you had it on your list. No big rush on my part.

Image Gallery access

I can't figure out how to access the image gallery. I'm hoping to find Balwin info there to help with the new HOn3 4-4-0 project evolving on the Yahoo Narrow Gauge Chat group. My regular PacificNG forum login and password won't work and after an hour and a half searching this evening I can't figure ...

Re: Nevada Central For Google Earth

Dave - I found the 1886 Sanborn map of Austin. Had to download it in 8 pieces which I will print out and cut and paste together. With that, current Google Earth images, MH Ferrell's book and your comments in front of me it will make an interesting study session. Neat thing about GE is that you can f...

Re: How far we've come in 80+ years

Well, it's been 3 years since the last post in this section. Seems like there is not much interest here in modeling. I have trouble believing that. I think the current state of the model train art is a little different than your guys predicted in 2010's posts above. The predicted movement of modeler...

Re: Nevada Central For Google Earth

Dave - I'm slow getting back to the forum this week. Evenings I've been exhausted from clearing brush around my CA mountain house. Springtime chore..... I have to digest a lot of what you wrote; but it will all be interesting to me. I love researching narrow gauge prototypes with a purpose of design...

Re: Nevada Central For Google Earth

Andrew - I spent some time studying your Google Earth plot this evening. Many thanks for your efforts. With copies in hand as well as Mal Ferrel's Nevada Central book I'm hoping to spend a day in the Austin area exploring come early October when I'll be driving through there. Properties around the C...

Re: Nevada Central For Google Earth

Dave - You'll have fun with Google Earth. First you have to download it and it'll put am icon on your desktop. I guess you can learn it pretty well if you go through the tutorials. I haven't yet mustered the patience for that. I just plunged in. When you open the program it'll show an astronauts vie...

Re: The beautiful TAHOE

Knowing little about the subject of construction of steel hulled ships I'm give to wonder about how the Tahoe was disassembled on the coast, moved and reassembled at the lake. In today's world they would simply cut the ship into pieces, move the pieces with humongous crane and barges and then weld t...

Pacific Rim Narrow gauge- Canada?

Does anybody besides me want to add a category for British Columbia to this section of PacificNG.com? I'll admit that few pay any attention to BC narrow gauge. I got into it when I spent a couple of months combing the internet for information on Anyox. I found quite a bit. Maybe enough for a book if...
