Found some more photos.

Silverton, Colorado

That's 25lb rail,

and looking at its worn head,

it saw good use in ye olde days.


Guess it's more than 100 yrs. old.

Hi Michael  :wave:

I hope the historic garage dig & new house flooring is going OK.  :thumb:  :old dude:


Brit. diesel & steam together in this rather nice picture.  L:

I came across the vintage catalogue cover, in my photos ...





... From 1963, when 'Tri-ang' were in business with 'Lionel', for a short time.  :time:

Your Series-3 'Tri-ang' switch, may have snuk across the border via. 'Lionel' ?  :mex:

I'm not sure exactly what the 'Science Series' was, as I've never seen it !  :us:


:java::moose:

Here's another short piece of rail I recently got,
from a friend I know over in Beatty. 

I was out in Pahrump Nevada checking on some properties,
and just had to swing through Death Valley since I was in the area.

The rail is about two inches tall. 
Usually used in mines. 

My friend has a two-foot gauge line wandering about is property. 
He threw in a few spikes just for fun.

A past layout.
 
This was the Pacific Range & Western Railroad (still under construction),
operating in Central California in the mid-1950s.


The imagined line ran east to west connecting with the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific,
with branches to Port Lucia on the coast and to Fort Wayne, an US Army training post.

The PR&W was always short of motive power and leased most of what it needed. 
It was common to see engines from the Santa Fe, Espee, and D&RGW.


There were several staging tracks behind the backdrops. 

I hung simple cheap mirrors above the staging tracks,
so that I could see the progress of the trains that I was setting up.


Unfortunately, a move brought this to an end.
