This was started as ''New member introduction''. See past postings there.

The APPETITE MINE story will continue here...

  This crusty old boy is yours truly.

Good afternoon everyone, Larry Gant here. I am a 75 year old retired graphic artist (glorified term for sign painter, in my case). born in Clear Lake, South Dakota in 1941, moved to Minneapolis, MN in 1948, retired to the Black Hills of South Dakota/Wyoming in 2006. I joined a HO scale club up in historic Deadwood and built a HO scale home layout too.

Losing interest in HO standard gauge, I have started a decent size Gn15 layout... 16"x15' along one wall and 16"x9' along another wall with a 3'x5' peninsula off the 9' wall over my modeling desk.

The Gn15 layout will be set in the Black Hills during the late 1950s. A fictitious mineral named "Appetite" will be mined so I can avoid any rivet counters telling me I'm doing things wrong.

OK fellow Rails de' free...I had to do some "work" and delete the entire "can I change my name" thread. Yes, I seem to be the only one who can do these things (yes, uh huh, mmmm) so I hope my doing so doesn't cause me to get deleted also. Of course, I have been kicked off websites before for minor infractions so I await further instructions.

Now, may I present the new APPETITE MINE by Larry G. I hope this is proper and works for all concerned.

Woodie, you "work" too fast. I was just about to follow ? advice and add the links he provided to my 2 threads. That's ok, I'll come at this "APPETITE MINE" thing from another angle. My tired old gray matter still works once in a while.

This photo picks up where the old thread ended...

Inside the Homestake/Sanford visitors center at LEAD, SD, I found this hoist cage. The single, very large, cable is just visible on top.    Almost looks like a brass model.
