Here's Jeff's photo flipped back. This is basically the same resolution as Jeff's posting, but the file Jeff used might have a higher resolution.

I'm posting the PNG file and the embedded pic. I used free IrfanView software.

Russell, Thank you for the flip.  I have felt so “disoriented” by that photo for years.  I feel like I just stepped out of a space capsule.  Seeing the flipped corrected version of that photo really resolves my spatial disorientation.   I copied your flip to my iPad.  Even though they said it was flipped my mind has been trying to construct a canyon that I had missed.  Little things this group does are so helpful.  
I look forward to a visit to Sacramento.

Re: Museum update from Charlie Getz

About Don’s photos:

Does someone somewhere have a listing of railroad publishers that are still operating? 

I know many are closing with the health of their original owners declining (Timber Times comes to mind) but I know there are still some out there, White River comes to mind, though they haven’t done many books lately, I think they are pretty busy with their magazines. 

I think such a listing would be a great resource.

"Hi Jeffrey,

Sorry for the delays, but we just met with Gizmo and Don and Brianna. The slides are ready to come back to you and will be sent very shortly by Don. So look for them soon.

You will be amazed and delighted at the fantastic enlargement of one of the slides showing the G&D. It is absolutely spectacular. We saw a small version of it, and learned all of the effort put into expanding the picture to cover a wall. It will be an impressive start to the exhibit.

Thanks again for loaning us these wonderful slides. And look for them in the mail very soon.

Re: G&D boxcar with Latino Bandito

Russell Courtenay
 

Thank you! ¡Eso se que es!

I was thinking the steel boxcar wasn’t Athearn because of the low-relief plastic underframe, Athearn used one with an exposed metal weight, we had many of these as kids, we only had the MDC ‘old timers’, similar to the other 2 cars with thread truss rods. Also the trucks are the same. 

Also shown are several of the scratchbuilt and detailed flatcars I got. I built a few of these in HOn3 years ago, so light they wouldn’t stay on the track without a load, so I planned on rebuilding them with solid 1/16” brass decks, went back to O scale instead...

That PMR ore car sure looks like a Gould/Tichy Train Group car.

Trafofuchs has Some Mexican figures in N SCALE and Z SCALE on their website, not this one but they would probably make it for you if you’re not working HO.

Christmas Card

Tom Milam
 

hi
recently my wife purchased a album full of old Christmas cards from an antique store in the Bay Area. One she plans to have copied ( from the 1940’s or 50’s) is from Clifford Grandt and his wife, of course a train with a switch stand cartoonishly printed. I would post a photo but at the printers to copy. Maybe one of John Allen might be in the mix, I will look and let you know

Re: G&D boxcar with Latino Bandito

Going through boxes of track given to me I found another box of cars with yet more treasures. These appear to be the MDC Roundhouse offerings. Not too sure about the very detailed VMR woodside hopper.

I want to build a small display that will sit on top of the piano with a bit of scenery but it looks like the display will be getting a bit bigger as I put away my temp On30 setup. Now to find an ex Sierra Ry 2-6-6-2 to go with them...

It is likely painted in some standard boxcar red color they used for others.  Perhaps buy some other one to get a replacement door?

I have that same boxcar. It's a Roundhouse …and one of their many G&D series. The "box" easily lifts off the frame. The number 5600 and the steps are a big clue.The "box" lifts off the frame.

Also, it may be the first commercial GD car ever offered. At least it was the first I ever saw … and purchased.

That is the Athearn car the NMRA did for their Heritage series a number of years ago.  Standard Athearn blue box door if you want to try and find one.
