Eureka Mill RR

I am looking to start on the page for the Eureka Mill RR in Nevada.
I know there is a info in Myrick's RR's of Nevada, and the articles that Farrell had in the Gazette a while back.
Are there any other sources of information? Or anyone interested in contributing to this?

Re: Looking for info on a Porter-Bell Loco

Mich-Cal Log Bogie

made a trip over to the NCNG Museum in Nevada City today since it is right behind my office. The Mich-Cal Lumber Bogie that has been under restoration the past few months was outside and I was able to grab a few photographs.

Re: SPC "Company Stack"

Since I don't have any SPC references handy, were the "Company Stacks" the Stevens design? Was that part of the discussion? I believe I remember seeing a drawing for those somewhere, but I could be mistaken.

The images you see are shots from my collection that have been in books and other media previously. I believe I have another 20 or so to upload in the coming weeks. Since I a...
