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.

The video shows the On3 John Armstrong Memorial layout of the On3 trainbuffs in Rikon. The layout had an "open house" during the "Plattform der Kleinserie" Exhibition in Bauma. As the layout is situated in a former factory, it has a lot of space available. The layout is based on the RGS and D&RGW narrow gauge and a trackplan once developped by the late John Armstrong, the dean of track plans. Despite its unfinished state, it is absolutely amazing what has been achieved to date.

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 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."

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... (compiled from the "Story of Laws" by Clarabelle Hawkins.)

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.

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.

Purchase the complete 2-DVD set or 2-BluRay set at www.greenfrog.com (2-Disc DVD Set) The Canton, St. Paul & Pacific Railway is a 1 1/2" scale live steam railroad. 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!

I want to tell you about the Kearsarge Mining Company in the eastern sierra, that I have referred to in other videos, which should not be confused with the later settlement of Kearsarge, in the Owens Valley that we are headed towards today. In the Autumn of 1864, on a then unnamed mountain in the eastern sierra, five woodcutters discovered a vein of rich silver and gold ore. The men staked their claims to three Mines. They mined and shipped four tons of ore to a stamp mill in Nevada, receiving $900 a ton. The news of their mine leaked out, and several mine investors purchased the three main silver claims, forming the Kearsarge Mining Company. They established the mining camp known as Kearsarge or Kearsarge City below the mines located high up on the east slope of the eastern sierra at an elevation of 8,830 ft located just below the 12,621-foot-high granite Kearsarge Peak, and east of the Kearsarge Pass, 8 miles west of present-day town of Independence, California. These new owners had driven a 50-foot tunnel into the side of the mountain by August 1865, reaching $650+ per ton silver ore. After a winter of heavy snow, on the afternoon of March 1, 1866, an avalanche swept away most of the camp and some of the population, killing the wife of the mine foreman and injuring several men. The remaining camp population relocated to a safer site nearby, except the miners who continued to operate the mines and a mill that was constructed that summer. The Rex Montis mine, which became the principal gold source in the District, was worked on a large scale from 1875 to 1883. Kearsarge was mostly abandoned by 1888, the mill was removed and with little else remaining, but it was occupied on and off as attempts were later made to revive the mines with little success. The first written account of the later settlement called Kearsarge is June 23, 1866; the San Francisco paper “Alta California” mentioned Kearsarge as a stagecoach station and it seems to have evolved into the railroad station by 1883. The railroad station first named Independence for the nearby town and county seat, it soon became known as Citrus, and renamed Kearsarge Station in 1913. The name Kearsarge, popular back then, comes from the Union man-of-war USS Kearsarge, which had then recently sunk the Confederate ship, CSS Alabama, off the coast of France. A nearby settlement had been named Alabama Hills by Confederate sympathizers, so this "evened the score" after the naval battle. The Kearsarge station served the Carson and Colorado Railway, a narrow gauge railroad that ran from Mound House, Nevada, to Keeler, California. It served the community until it was closed in 1932. Aside from the station building there was a residence for the section boss and a bunkhouse for the workers. The typical Carson and Colorado station building stood until 1955 when it was demolished without much left to explore today to serve as reminder of what was. Looking out over the valley I can just imagine myself back in time and can hear the Slim Princess leaving Kearsarge station for its final departure.

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. Future construction will complete the interchange in Tempe and run the LD to the north. Locations will be Hayden Mills, 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, 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. The LD emblem is commonly seen on freight cars. LDRR Track Plan http://www.desertops.org/dutchman.html
