Hello from North East Wisconsin in the USA.

I'm modeling a prototype railroad that existed from 1875 to about 1926.

It was a C&NW narrow gauge that was a transfer connection between Fennimore Wi,
and the CM&StP (Milwaukee Road) in Woodman Wi.

The railroad was nicknamed the Dinky and I'm modeling it in On30 and O scale.

Benchwork and track plan are done and I have started laying track.
Trying my hand at hand laid track.

Hi Mike  :wave:


Good to see you Posting on Freerails !  :bg:


It sounds like you're doing OK on the railroad.  :thumb:

Handlaid track is a favourite pastime of many N.G.ers here.

Everyone seems to have their own slightly different take on it.  L:


Keep bangin' in those spikes ! 


All the best

:cool:

Si.

That's really unique!

C&NW narrow gauge!


A really cool line, you could likely model all their equipment.

You must be into passenger trains?


Looking forward to some pictures.

Nice and different!

Did I see a car from this line at North Freedom? 

It was many, many years ago, hate to say how many,
but I seem to remember a narrow gauge CNW boxcar there. 

I might have thought Black Hills at the time,
and I remember thinking, "Wonder why this is here?" 

But I was involved with family,
and didn't get to explore as much as I wanted.

:doh:

I think the only car they have there is car #1099.

The railroad didn't have a caboose,
so they used this car as a caboose/baggage car.

Are there any plans for their rolling stock anywhere?

A guy named Jim Schulz has built the whole lot.

A book is also available.


Just Google - C&NW Dinky.
