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. Moctezuma Copper was wholly owned by Phelps Dodge, a company known for thrift. Im not sure if economy was the reason the clearanc...

looking for feedback on maps:

My name is Duane, and I am an addict. My addiction is old maps. 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...

Re: Bonus Mexican Narrow gauge pics.

I got the proofs back from the publisher last weekend-their layout person did an amazing job on the art, maps and photos. Unfortunately there was a miscommunication(my fault) and it was sent to be printed as a full color, which would have tripled the publication cost and been unnecesary as 80% of th...

Re: Could Use Some Prototype Info.

No big surprises, but the best resources for the Morenci Southern and other Clifton/Morenci lines is David Myricks Railroads of Az vol III. Mallory Hope Ferrell did a history of the Coronado RR and other RRs in the 2004 Finescale Railroader. Both have excellent pics of the 2-8-0's. I dont have Myric...

Bonus Mexican Narrow gauge pics.

Thought Id post a few pics that I couldnt use in the Sonora narrow Gauge book as they were not publication quality. I I tried to save these in photobucket but they only save as tiny JPGs. The originals of several of these were recently lost in the Cananea archives debacle (which I never did have the...

Re: Boxcar move this weekend

The pic of the forklift lifting the entire boxcar in the middle looks a little precarious! Glad everything held together

Re: Railroads/Mines near Lake Shasta?

I picked up a copy of the newer version of Signor's Southern Pacific Shasta Route , what a great read! The coverage of the mines and railroads in and under the lake is good, but I'm still looking for a little more in depth coverage...If anyone comes accross anything, please post it here, thanks, Duane

Re: Museum situation in Nevada

Its happening everywhere! An unfortunate reality is that arts/culture are often the easiest for politicians to cut, although I certainly dont think any of the politicians enjoy the tough decisions that the budget part of the job entails. I personally believe America needs far more arts and culture, ...
