Steam locomotives are being readied for their daily duties at the San Jose Southern Pacific roundhouse. Engines leave the roundhouse, move on to the turntable and are positioned to the desired track. Firemen firing up the locomotives, engineers check the gear, locomotives are being moved, tanks take water in. Locomotives move along, leave or enter the yard. Passenger and freight trains leave or pass the yard. Lots of action, surrounding scenery and buildings. No less than 30+ steam locomotives are present on the yard, both switchers and cab forwards. Identified steam locomotives 2847, 2826, 2777, 2781, 2713, 4105, 2410, 2487, 4109, 2474, 1287, 1773, 4435 The fifteen stall Lenzen Roundhouse was originally built in 1899 to serve the standard gauge San Jose-San Francisco rail commuter line and the narrow gauge South Pacific Coast Railroad replacing two existing structures for those lines. The South Pacific Coast operated from Alameda, down the East Bay marshlands to San Jose than over the mountains above Los Gatos on the way to Santa Cruz. Although the two railroads operated independently, both were early segments of Southern Pacific Railroad ownership. This roundhouse is unique because it was one of the few such structures built to serve two different gauged locomotives. The narrow gauge line was converted to standard gauge by 1909. The Lenzen facility would hold importance to local railroad operations for the next fifty years. During this time, steam locomotives assigned to the Roundhouse supported the commuter operation and the freight transportation requirements of the community's food processing industry. During the steam era a large number of employees worked out of the San Jose Roundhouse. In addition to locomotive engineers and firemen reporting for commute trains, switchers and local freights, a large number of boiler makers, machinists, laborers, herders and hostlers all worked under the direction of a roundhouse foreman. Many of the engine crews and roundhouse workers lived nearby in the area around Stockton Avenue and the railroad tracks which were within ear shot of the steam whistles and an easy walk to work at the roundhouse. The roundhouse force worked 24-hours a day servicing the large number of steam locomotives assigned to San Jose. After the second World War, many railroads including Southern Pacific, began purchasing new diesel powered locomotives to replace aging steam locomotives. A major factor toward this decision was reduced maintenance labor requirements of diesel locomotives. Subsequently, many locomotive facilities were either reduced in size or eliminated. In 1959, the Lenzen Roundhouse was reduced from fifteen stalls to a six stall configuration as the facility remained a necessity to support diesel locomotives used in both commute and freight service. As local food processing customers left the region, the number of diesel locomotives serviced at the San Jose Roundhouse were reduced. In addition, the railroad change its operating divisions as trains that once changed crews and locomotives in San Jose, began to literally pass thru, thereby reducing the number of locomotives maintained at the Lenzen facility. Despite these changes, the San Jose Roundhouse remained an integral component of local rail operation. Although the peninsula commute line was purchased by the local Joint Powers Agency in 1982, the Lenzen facility continued to service locomotives. Because of un-reinforced masonry codes enacted after the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, the roundhouse structure was determined to be unsafe and scheduled for demolition. The remaining locomotive servicing was moved to nearby locations. Preservation of the structure thereby became the focus of California Trolley and Railroad Corporation and other local interests. Recognizing the importance of this historic structure to its community, the Southern Pacific Railroad donated the building and turntable to Santa Clara County in 1994 for inclusion in a railroad museum. In 2000, the roundhouse was disassembled, palletized and moved to the county fairgrounds.

#trains #D&RGW #railroad #On3 The Durlin Branch is a free-lance mountain branch line of the 3 foot narrow gauge D&RGW fourth division hauling general freight, coal, ore concentrates, lumber, livestock and passengers. The branch ties into the San Juan Extension mainline in Chama NM, with Durango CO to the west and Alamosa CO to the east. The D&RGW had extensive dual gauge track at Alamosa, providing transfer of freight and passengers between the narrow and standard gauge railroads. Alamosa and Durango are represented by staging. Chama circa 1936 is a heavily condensed scene vitally important to the operation. It is a subdivision point, a helper terminal; and a terminal for the branch line trains. At Grandt Line Junction, the Durlin branch line takes off and climbs a steady 3.8% grade through Cresco and Toltec Tunnel up to Carrumba where the line splits. One line continues on to Fritz Park, then descends a 4% grade through Resin Creek to Durlin. The other branch serves Flint and a coal mine. Steam locomotives still rule on the narrow gauge lines. The pace is relaxed as befits a narrow gauge railroad, and saw-bys are simply all in a days work on the mountain.

The centenary of this narrow gauge line was celebrated in Agnita station on the 25th and 26th of September 2010. For this event a narrow gauge steam locomotive was brought to this station from CFF Moldovita. It was the "Budapest" 764-243 that once worked on Berzasca CFF line, and then was sold outside Romania, but from this year it is running again on CFF lines like Comandau and Moldovita or on the line from Brad-Criscior. Its home station is Criscior, but two days before the event in Agnita the locomotive was working beautifully in Moldovita. The locomotive was built in 1911 and now it is the only "Budapest" "mocanita", still active in Romania. At the same time this is the second oldest steam locomotive built in 1910, after the O&K "Mariuta" (764-211) (www.mocanita.ro). All day long, a special bike-powered-car made people move on the line as long as they could pedal. We made it for about two kilometres on the way to Sibiu... The station building, once used for passengers and now closed and abandoned, was transformed into an exhibition area for the special multimedia event. Inside the station visitors could find objects that once were used by people working on the line, alternatively some interviews with those particular workers could be heard. Old photos and a movie about the line reminded of the life on this narrow gauge track. The line has been very important for the communities in Valea Hartibaciului for the last 100 years. This aspect was illustrated by different traditional household objects as well as by some cloth items from this region. At the end of the station platform a special "slow-food" brunch delighted the participants on Saturday. This was the last event for 2010 organised by Transilvanian Brunch. And what better choice for location than the train station platform? This was especially chosen in order to be in harmony with the line anniversary. Local traditional food and drinks were prepared and brought in the station so the participants had a complete idea of what the line had been and how beautiful this region still is. On Sunday the steam locomotive pulled a green refurbished wagon for the official ceremony. After the Mayor's of Agnita and other guests' speeches the officials made a short trip by train and marked the anniversary moment by switching the signal "on". "On" for future projects and, I hope, for future trains on the line.

I had a fantastic time hosting Gary Lattrel and his One-of-a-Kind DDA40X’s on Thursday, the 16th of April, 2015. What a fun three hours we had! And hopefully this video will showcase how incredible these Locomotives really are. Gary has built from scratch, two Union Pacific DDA40X Diesel Locomotives in G scale. Not only are they two of the most beautiful models I have ever seen, they are the only models of a DDA40X locomotive in G scale in the World! No other models exist anywhere that I am aware of. And these puppies performed extremely well that day; pulling a fairly long load around my layout. Gary has installed AirWire for the control and batteries for the power, along with Phoenix Sound, which brings out the realness in these locomotives. The AirWire gave these DD40's very good slow starting and stopping, along with all the other features that AirWire provides. And the batteries lasted the entire 3 hours we were running on the layout. A little background on the creation of these DDA40X’s by Gary Lattrel: These two DDA40X locomotives were manufactured using sophisticated software for the design, and State-of-the-Art upgraded 3D printers to bring them to life. Being blessed with having a son in the manufacturing business that uses these sophisticated - high end 3D printers, Gary has pursued building many G scale train items over the years, using these incredible 3D printers with the help of his son. And these DDA40X locomotives is his latest endeavor. Gary started off by buying an HO model of an Athearn DDA40X. He liked this model in HO for two reasons; first, because of the extensive amount of detail that Athearn used on that model; and second, because of the 1:87 scale, which is exactly three times the G scale ratio of 1:29. Hours and hours and hours were spent by Gary going over every inch of that Athearn model to establish the size and shape of all the details that made up that model. A high end software program was used to calculate all of this data inside a computer. Gary said it was an arduous task. But once completed, not only did it provided a means to view the finished model on any 3D axis imaginable, but it also provided a basis for the printers to do their magic! An FDM machine made most of the model using ABS plastic. This $400,000 plus machine is an extremely high-end 3D printer that uses paper thin layers of ABS plastic, laying it down in every direction, to form the body of the DDA40X. An equally expensive and high-end SLS machine, using nylon 12, made the side frames of the model. This same SLS machine also made the railings, which are all in one piece with no breaks, and is extremely strong. It also made the small detail parts like hoses, visors, MU cables, and light housings. The motor blocks and wheels are from a USAT SD-70, with a custom pivoting wheel and motor as the fourth axle needed to complete the DDA40X’s wheel set. This very customized piece of engineering by Gary proved vital in completing the look of the model because DDA40X’s have 4 axles, and there is nothing on the ready to run market with 4 axles. It also provided the flexibility in transversing the many layouts that these models would travel on. To me, this is something that USA Trains should look into if they ever made these larger 4 axle locomotives. It was pure genius on Gary’s part! Gary still has a few things left to complete on these models; glass in the windows - the lights in the back section of the locomotive and the strobe on top of the cab - some more stenciling - and a few more detail parts on the front and rear of the locomotives. I hope you have a great time viewing these incredible locomotives, as they transverse the “ Palo Verde and Southwestern Railroad.” I know I did!

The Laws Railroad Museum and Historic Site is not just another train museum. Located on the site of the Laws Railroad station and rail yard, the land, 1883 depot and other buildings, and the last train, were donated to Inyo County and the City of Bishop by the Southern Pacific Railroad in 1960. The museum is operated by the Bishop Museum and Historical Society under contract with those two agencies. The gift deed from the Southern Pacific Company to the county and city reads as follows: "In appreciation of the interest of Inyo County and the City of Bishop in preserving the memory of the Far West's last common carrier narrow gauge railroad, the Keeler Branch, Southern Pacific Company is pleased to donate steam locomotive No. 9 together with other rolling stock, and the Laws Station building and surrounding installations for safekeeping in behalf of generations to come."

David Doiron's - 1967 Southern Pacific / Lost Dutchman RR (LDRR) With Stephen Atwell, Eric Hall & Dean LDRR Track Plan - http://desertops.org/images/Dutchman/... Desert Ops - Phoenix Oct., 2016 - http://desertops.org http://desertops.org/dutchman.html The two different railroads are depicted with an interchange at Tempe AZ in a “could have been” alternate history. It is August of 1967, and cotton, citrus, and copper reign. The modeled Southern Pacific is close to the actual line between Phoenix and Chandler. Locations include Tovrea, Tempe, Normal, Mesa, Chandler, with staging representing Phoenix and Tucson. Tempe actually had 3 branches; the Kyrene(1), Terrace, and the Creamery branch. In the alternate history, the SP spun off the branches as well as the Tempe engine facility to the Lost Dutchman RR. The Lost Dutchman is a bridge line / tourist railroad owned by an eccentric Cajun billionaire with minority interest held by both the Southern Pacific and the Great Northern. The branches have been rationalised and freight traffic further developed so that the line is self-supporting. The tourist operation is the special interest of the Cajun. As a result, a significant amount of “heritage” equipment is preserved and operated. Steam engines from a handful of roads are kept at the Tempe roundhouse and there are historic freight and passenger car paint schemes in service as well. The Kyrene extends south from Tempe, serving the industrial park at Peterson, Oncroy Ridge, Tyrell industries at Helena, Marathon Steel at Kyrene, and then the new industrial park at Aptakisic. The Dutchman has redeveloped the area south of Kyrene by subletting it to the Chicago Shortline Association(2), and they named Aptakisic after an area near Chicago. The raised area near the center is the only intact section that could be saved from the famous GSV (in Phoenix) of Ed Ravenscroft(3). That entire area is now the Aptakisic Artificial Shrub Corp, and will get a chain-link fence at some point. The roundhouse and turntable (also from the GSV) serve as overflow from the main shops in Tempe. The elevated track represents a grade separation project over State Highway 347. The plate girder bridges were saved from the original 1947 GSV layout in Chicago. The Lost Dutchman interchanges with the Southern Pacific in Tempe, then runs to the north. Locations are Hayden Mills, Creamery Branch, Galveston, Uvalde, Gringo Junction(4), Ephrata, and Eden Perdu (all in Arizona). There will also be an inland car ferry operation (a la Slocan) on Saguaro Lake from Butcher Jones Landing to Port Evangeline. Eden Perdu is a division point and will have a yard, major car shops(5), and Baker Paper Mill No.6. Staging and the Santa Fe interchange will be at “Two Guns”, just west of Winslow and south of Canyon Diablo. Traffic is managed by conventional CC&WB, control is DCC. Jobs currently work Tempe Yard, Mesa Yard, the Engine Terminal, and Locals on the Kyrene and SP. No dispatcher (yet). Welcome! 1 The Kyrene was the actual original line to Phoenix, built in the 1880’s. 2 Consortium: Glencoe Skokie Valley, Central of Wisconsin, and Colorado Northern 3 Aptakisic appeared in the Sep 72 MR p.41 4 Home of the “Monsters of Gringo Junction”. 5 “LD” devices are made and fitted here.

A couple Southern Pacific Cab-Forwards pull Daylights cars up the mountain at the Golden Gate Model Railroad Club. The Golden Gate Model Railroad Club was located in the Randall Museum, San Francisco. This is a video I created for the Golden Gate Model Railroad Club channel in 2015-05-14. The Golden Gate Model Railroad Club was located in the basement of the Randall Museum, San Francisco. This museum is actually more an education center for kids, with science projects and even a small zoo. The layout was open weekly to the public on Saturdays and little visitors enjoyed seeing the trains go around in its complex track layout (http://ggmrc.org/about/the-track-plan/ for the track plan.) The GGMRC model train layout was built in the 60s and models a somewhat fictional railway named "Sierra Nevada & Pacific Railroad" mixing the Colorado Midland, D&RG up to the ATSF acquisition of the SF&SJV. Locations on the layout include Stockton, Fairfield, sierra mountains named The Summit and a loop that curiously looks like Tehachapi. Later yards added to the layout are named Richmond, Napa and Bridgeport, although these are mostly plywood plains and not given too much exposure on the video. The steam engine featured here is a "cab-forward", a very peculiar design where the steam engines are run in "reverse" with the cab placed forward. This is possible as these engines burned oil and not coal. The design was used by Southern Pacific to solve the issue of their engineers and firemen asphyxiating in their tunnels -- and their main line in the sierras had nearly 40 tunnels and 40 miles of snow sheds.

Free model railroader report from http://www.modelrailroadhub.com/free.html Don’t make the aisles of your model railroad too narrow. This is particularly important if you think you might put on some weight, or if you plan on inviting friends and railroading buddies over to see your model trains operating. Some model railroaders can get by having their aisles only two feet wide (or even less), but generally 3ft is required if you operate your model trains with two or more engineers at once. After all, it is not very enjoyable breathing in so you can to squeeze past another operator or spectator each time you move to another section of your railroad. Sure, It is feasible to skimp on aisle space in some layout areas, but generally the main viewing and operating areas need to be a wide enough for at least two people. When attending model train shows you’ll notice that spectators will typically bunch around interesting scenery areas like a long bridge, turntable, busy yards and engine facilities, tunnels, a train station, a mining town, street scene, or anywhere else where there’s activity going on. Your layout will probably be no different; your visitors will muster around areas they find most interesting. That’s why those areas will need sufficient aisle space to cope with the traffic without causing a bottleneck. Dead-ends at the end of aisles can also cause problems when someone want to get out. However dead-ends are not always avertable. I hope this quick model train tip will be of assistance to someone.

The Story of Laws On May 10, 1880, the Carson and Colorado Railroad Company was formed and incorporated by William Sharon, H. M. Yerington and Darius Mills. They planned to run the narrow gauge railroad from Mound House, Nevada, and the Carson River to the Colorado River, calling it the C&C Railroad. It never reached the Colorado River but stopped at Keeler, California. It has often been referred to as "the railroad that was built 300 miles too long or 300 years too soon" As the word was out that the railroad would run east of the Owens River, people started to arrive at what is known now as Laws. A new railroad town was built. It took 3 years for the rails to be laid from Mound House to Laws, with the first train arriving in April of 1883. The depot, agent's house, section boss's house, outhouses, water tank and turntable were all ready when it arrived. In addition to the railroad buildings other construction quickly followed which included many homes, barns, and corrals, two general stores, a rooming house, eating house, hotel, boarding house, pool hall and dance hall, blacksmith shop, post office, barber shop, powder magazine and warehouses. Several industrial buildings followed later. Many ranches surrounded Laws and used the railroad to ship their crops. The decline and demise of Laws and the railroad were the result of the local mines closing, trucking becoming cheaper than rail freight and the city of Los Angeles buying most of the valley for the water rights. By 1959 when the railroad ceased operation, there was no trace of any of the buildings at Laws as they had all been torn down for salvage. Only the depot, agent's house, oil and water tanks and the turntable survived. All the other buildings you see at the museum today were doomed for destruction locally but were saved by being moved to the museum grounds...

The phrase "live steam" refers to any scale model that operates on steam power in the same manner as the full size prototype. "Live steam" can be stationary boilers, traction engines, boats, and, in our case, railroad locomotives. Throughout the history of live steam railroading, scale steam locomotives have comprised the majority of locomotives being built by hobbyists; however, in more recent years, more enthusiasts are building scale models of modern diesel-electric locomotives. Unlike scale steam engines which operate exactly like their full size counterparts, these are usually gasoline or electrically powered. Located on twelve acres of virgin forest that are protected by the Southeast Regional Land Conservancy, our railroad was built and is maintained by a handful of hard working members using mostly hand tools, picks, shovels, and steam or diesel locomotive power. The track gauge is 7 1/2" inches. Live steam locomotives and rolling stock are generally built by individuals in their free time in their own machine shops. Equipment is transported to and from the railroad with pickup trucks, trailers, etc. This Two Disc set includes runby's of many trains and Loco's, On-Train footage with runs of the entire Railway, and a Bonus Disc with Extra footage, behind the scenes footage, details of the Railway, plus time lapse condensed footage of operations and runs on the entire Railway!

Filmed on the Golden Spike Train Club of Utah layout, with an Open House every second Saturday of the month. Finished up a kitbash build (Two Foot Rule) of an HO scale Denver & Rio Grande Western F-81 2-10-2 locomotive. I filmed this during some break-in runs to make sure my little steam fleet would be ready for the open house, and everything worked out great! The prototypes were built by ALCo in 1916, ten total, and mostly saw service on the western side of the Rio Grande (Utah). The Vanderbuilt tenders lasted until around 1948, before being replaced by square tenders from scrapped ex-N&W engines. Some of these engines lasted into 1955, before being retired and scrapped. This particular example was built from an IHC 2-10-2 engine, and a Bachmann Spectrum Vanderbuilt tender. DCC was added, as well as most of the specialized details only found on D&RGW locomotives. I am offering kits of the offset GS Gondolas now on Ebay, just look up Bonsall Scale Carshops. They are 3D printed, and come as an unpainted kit with decals.
