W elcome to PacificNG.com, dedicated to the history of narrow gauge railroading in western North America. Our goal is to create a central hub for accurate data, history, imagery, and reference materials relevant to fans of narrow gauge railroading west of the Great Divide. We are proud to host a growing community of historians, curators, authors, artists and others who have been instrumental in what we call a "curated wiki" to collect and share this information with others. You will find an ever growing collection of histories and reference materials relating not only to narrow gauge railroading, but a broad assortment of material showcasing the 19th century.
If you see this message, you're now seeing us on the new host. Please be patient while we work out the kinks!
After several failed attempts, we will be moving hosts this coming weekend (May 11-12). During this time, expect the site to be unavailable or buggy while we transition everything. During this time the Image Gallery will be disabled. If all goes well the move will be completed by next week.
