Re: Jackson and Sharp Photographs Online

It took 4 visits over a year (three with a assistant, the last one last week) to copy the entire book. I am in the process of renaming and reordering the copies, and building a searchable index

Re: Nevada State Railroad Museum - good news so far!

That is encouraging! As someone who has worked for the government for 10 years, I have seen how much a few letters or comments (eloquent and not angry)can sway political decisions. I just feel if we can weather these tough times, I think museums like the Nevada State Museum will be OK.

Re: Bonus Mexican Narrow gauge pics.

A few more pics-this time of the 3' Moctezuma RR that ran until 1949: tunnelcloseup.jpg I wish I could have found a better quality photograph of this shot, but never did.

Seriously though, Im struggling with maps and wanted to see if I could get input from others on this site about what they would like to see in a publication: I've come to realize that it is a challenge to produce quality maps that depic...
