MinerFortyNiner,

Many Thanks !!!

I bust my rear end for 2 years straight to get this layout done for the 23rd Narrow Gauge Convention held in Denver that year.
And I started with a empty building from the ground up.

And not to toot my own horn !!!
But I got more work done in 2 years, Where it would have taken most guys in this hobby 10 years to do !!

PS. I really enjoy your work !!!
And the detailing on your little Porters are top notch !!

Ronnie D. :cb:

If I could own any model railroad in the world,

it would have to be the magnificent FRANKLIN AND SOUTH MANCHESTER of George Sellios of FSM fame.

Visited it 4 times over the years.

Without hesitating for a second.

Port Caribou RR & Western Navigation,  by Dick Patterson.

It was featured in Nov 1997 Model Railroader...
A 16 x 16 1/2 island type HOn3 layout, several loops intermeshed with each other, "European style".

Great scenery, working drawbridge, real DEEP water in the harbor, and a paddlewheel ferry that actually moved in and out of it.
Have scanned the article but think I can't post it here - anybody interested give me his email address.

Dick also built the "Dolly Varden" layout.
A strange concept where one looks in a gorge with tracks coming out of the sheer walls, and crossing the abyss...
However these are several unconnected loops, so no operation that makes sense is possible... only optical illusion.

I understand Dick went to the Great Roundhouse long ago.
I am afraid the layouts are gone too.
