    I don't have a cell phone, either. I don't want to be at the beck and call of people calling me on the phone, especially now when it has been opened up to sales calls; or, marketing!

    Chet, is the Geep in the following photo a Butte Anaconda and Pacific locomotive? If not, who is the line? I don't think it is the BAP's, as I thought they remained electric throughout their lifetime. The name on the side of the loco is unreadable, at least for me.

    This is Northern Pacific's Y-1 Consolidation Number 25 which is on desplay near the convention Center in Butte. Montanan (Chet) has a better photo showing the complete engine, above. Both he and I have Pacific Fast Mail Brass imports of Y-1 Consolidations. I could not get a good photo of the...

    Yes he did! Sirfoldalot, please know that I am the Curmudgeon from Minnesota, not the Curmudgeon from Michigan. I realize Beady and I live in the Fly Over states that no body cares about, except us, so this will not matter to anyone else. However, keep your Curmudgeons straight! To inform...

    I guess the photos did not show up when I first looked at this thread, now I see what everyone was so impressed with and have to say, I am impressed also! Great job, can we see it when you put it in position, too?

    Chet, cool! I really thought about contacting you about stopping by; however, what I thought we'd be doing and what we did ended up being two different things

    Trip to Butte Montana!

    My layout is loosely based on Northern Pacific's Butte Shortline. This is a route used by the NP for passenger traffic that broke form the mainline at Logan Montana, went over Homestake Pass, through Butte Montana and reconnected with the mainline at Garrison Montana. One of the current...
