Hi I love reading about branch lines, what is the gauge narrow gauge. In Australia we have three gauges 3ft6 and half in QLD Standard in most of the states and Victoria
had two gauges standard and broad 5ft gauge, fazing board gauge out.

I came across a neat branch line in Oregon called Oregon and California Railroad.

Was surprised the line was standard gauge.

Neat looking loco be worth the effort in scratching building project.

Hi Ray yeah I agree, had a look on your web page pretty awesome those rockets, are they remote controlled and have a recovery parachute.

my son wans me to build him a full size Hellfire missile, said to him he had to do some research on the project.
I plan to make it out of wood as I have a wood lathe and can turn the missile in sections, a pity probably wont be able to get hold of any plans.

Also quite keen in in ghost towns also.

Tony.

Found this pic online (© Martin E. Hansen) of Pagosa Junction looking west. A solitary boxcar is sitting on the siding on the east side of the station building where the coal buckets once were loaded. The house with narrow addition at the foreground of the photo is still visible here (Google map) where Trujillo Rd. curves to the north.

Not remote control, but they do have parachute recovery. They also have 35mm film cameras in them, which shoot a series of photos as the rocket is going up. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to fly any of them on this trip.

The "narrow addition" looks like it might have been made from an old boxcar.

Hi Ray thanks for that pic and link from Google earth on Pagosa Junction, I started doing some more digging into the history of Pagosa. Was a logging town , found a link I can post on the early saw mill, very interesting, goes back to two Indian tribes that lived in the same area.

http://www.pagosasun.com/a-record-of-some-of-pagosas-earliest-settlers/

I have another link from another forum with heaps of pics not sure if I should post the link on.

And these is another post on Free Rails of Pagosa Junction too, I came across when looking for more pics.

Tony

I thought the post belong to someone else, interesting read.

Was the reason Pagosa junction closed down because the area is Ute Indian reservation.
