OK then, here are three "last"photos of what's happening at the Boquillas Prismoidal RR interchange with the "Big Bend RR"(no, I haven't got around to an incorporated name yet!) at Boquillas, TX.





The "engineer" is showing off his new little puppy (inside his shirt) that he rescued from down in one of the canyons. Some of the "doings" in the little town can be seen in the background.





Here's a view of one of the monorail's cars built to haul sacks of cinnabar (mercury ore) which will then be loaded on a flat car, over the trucks, then hauled to the standard gauge interchange at Terlingua for the trip to the processing plant.





Here's another view of the "bag car" and the overhead hoist used for unloading the sacks and loading any equipment that is needed by the mines way down in the canyons. One of the fellows is unloading ore from the monorail to an ore car for delivery to the smelter.

The monorail scene is probably about finished, I am interested in working on a new mine with it's own "baby gauge" railroad.
