Sadly the photographs in the first 1/3 of this Thread ...

... have been held to ransom by PhotoBucket.Com ...

... and can no longer be seen.



The good news is though ...

... in the last 2/3 of the Thread from Page-57 onwards until the end ...

... ALL THE ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS ARE AS THEY SHOULD BE.



People wanting to view this Thread ...

... are recommended to start at Page-57 to see photographs.

Daves original Post :-




Here are some pics Woodie sent me to whet out appetites.

Very very cool stuff Woodie!! :pimp::moose::cool: :thumb:


His note reads:



Dave-I hope to get the pix figured out soon ... but in the mean time,

here are some from the Mogollon Railway.

The line is 1:35n2 and set in Texas' Big Bend area around 1938.


Woodie



Awesome!

Some early Mogollon Railway photographs by Mopman




For those that have not seen the latest incarnation of the Mogollon Ry,

here are a few shots before Woodie started the last two sections.

This by no means covers all the railway, just the middle portion really.




Turntable.





The high line (to the ore bins) leaves the low line (for the wax camps).
And believe me, Mogollon engines climb this grade several times daily !





One of the ore bins on the high line.





A little 0-4-0 switches the ore bin.





The "city" of Mogollon.



Enjoy

Very nice work Woodie! Thanks for posting those Dave. Maybe I missed it but what was the scale of this railroad?

The buildings shown are modeled after the real thing in Mogollon, NM except that they sit on the other side of the road and don't have the creek directly in front.
I need to weather the autos some more, but you get the idea.

Dave-thanks for posting the pix.
Please excuse the funky backdrops but that's what I had at the time.
The Mogollon Railway consists(at the moment) of 9 sections that can be set up outside on the side of my motor home and out into the back yard.
The layout can be up and running in about 30 minutes and if it begins to rain it can be taken down in 5 minutes.
There is no track wiring, I use radio control, so it makes things much simpler.

Thanks for the scale Men!!, With todays digital cameras and excellent pics it can be impossible to tell a scale anymore from a photo. Ok, you know me so here's my question.... 9 layout sections...how are they stored and transported...flat or on their sides? Do you have a rack that they are stored in? Do all structures and details remain in place?
