Rob,

I've been following Keith's postings for a while.
Great stuff and very helpful in interpreting the Gilpin Tram.

I haven't posted much on my Gilpin Module.
I am proto freelancing, so to speak, and call my module the Arroyo Tram.
I occasionally post progress on my bog:

http://modelingnarrowguage.blogspot.com/

there is nothing on my website about it.

So, I don't think you've missed anything.
Its a small switching layout, 24 inches by 96 inches.
Slowly, and I mean slowly, I've been making progress.
Too many distractions.....

Thanks again for posting your plan, its great.


Cheers!

Brian

Hi Brian,

I see the problem now ... I was looking for something titled Gilpin ... so thanks for the clarification.
The module looks fantastic!
I will be watching your blog.

Take care,
Rob.

Hi Gilpin fans :wave:



Some unique vintage photos of the Gilpin County area ...

... recently Posted here on Freerails, by new Member Kevin Fall, HERE :-

Gilpin Tram, Black Hawk & Central City Area



Check 'em out !

Here's one of my favorites ...





Looks like the roads there had as much tough terrain to negotiate as the rails !



Kevin said this :-

" ... these are different views of the areas around Black Hawk and some of the mines up in the hills served by the Gilpin.
I have no idea the year that these photos were taken, but I imagine they were all photographed around the same time.
If I have identified any of these incorrectly please let me know.
It is only because of this forum that I was able to identify anything at all in these photos."


Vintage Gilpin ! :old dude:



Si.

Wow ... nice photo!

That really shows how steep these gulches really were.
