Congratulations on the addition of MT. Harvard Roger. I cant wait to ride and see it when it arrives at the museum.


Russ Prince about Model Railway Display Building
Thu, 04-30-2015 19:04
Thanks for the update, Roger. Perhaps a way to increase donations toward this project is to include it in the lists of donation subjects on the [...]


Walter Unglaub about Model Railway Display Building
Thu, 04-30-2015 16:06
Roger, Your reply hit the nail right on the head. "Everything takes time" and of course, patience. I was one of the people along with Henry Vincent, [...]


Ted Miles about Mid-April Coach Department Update
Thu, 04-30-2015 15:27
Brian, At least we agree that it can not be restored to a full passenger car! You might look at the Colorado Railroad Museum they are [...]


Brian L. about Steam Department Update April 2015
Mon, 04-27-2015 20:01
The Sunday crew has gotten the stoker motor for 1630 almost completely disassembled and tagged. So far, the bearing surfaces look very good, though we [...]


Brian L. about Mid-April Coach Department Update
Mon, 04-27-2015 16:57
While I am not Paul and do not pretend to speak for him, as a volunteer of the coach department, I personally disagree with the notion that the 7128 [...]


Russ Prince about Mid-April Coach Department Update
Sun, 04-26-2015 16:08

Robert Penn about Mid-April Coach Department Update
Sat, 04-25-2015 23:24

Ted Miles, IRM Member about Mid-April Coach Department Update
Sat, 04-25-2015 19:24
Mr. Cronin, You have a big job on oyur hands with that Passenger car Collection. So why is the C,B & Q 7128 coach with is cut down to [...]


Roger Kramer about Model Railway Display Building
Fri, 04-24-2015 13:06
Hello Russ The funding for the model railroad is still ALIVE but still needs, of course, funding. This project will begin when? Building and [...]


Roger Kramer about More on the John Mcloughlin
Fri, 04-24-2015 12:54
Hello Kirk.. We plan to cover holes with large plates as we did in previous restorations like the Dover. Some plates have been temporary installed [...]


Russ Prince about Model Railway Display Building
Thu, 04-23-2015 23:00
This Model Railroad board doesn't seem to be generating the interest I would have hoped it would. Is the idea of funding a building for a model [...]
