If so wounder if the steam pump would still pump water

I couldn't get on the forum till now, has been out all morning, not sure if it is was internet explorer or the server, the good news Free Rails is back.

hi Don great to hear from another Aussie from down in Victoria, I was getting worried it was the computer at first.

But then again all my other links worked, did you page come up not showing, just must of being that page.

I even ask a friend from another forum that is on this forum also, he is in the US to see if he could connect, haven't heard from him, no need now.

What gauge trains are you modelling, did you also see the kangaroos having a fight in a suburban street in NSW some where was on the news, like your pic.

Yes I did spot the roo's.

I model On30.    See Paladins layout in the On30 section.  Go to the more recent post as they will show what is going on now.

I guess your a Queenslander.

Now back onto topic sorry about the aside.

Don

Hi Don, had another story on the roo's again tonight on ACA

Found your ON 30 layout post and replied to it, awesome layout.

Yep you guest it, I live in SEQLD in Ipswich, was born in Brisbane till I was married in 1980, moved to Ipswich in 87, want to move back to Brisbane, too hot on Ipswich in summer.

Still must of been our end for you to have trouble connecting to Free Rails also.

Tony .

Hello Frank,

Many thanks for finding that Pagosa Junction photo - it is the same contraption in exactly the same place as per my query.
Apologies for my belated reply & thanks - we have been away from home in a mostly Internet-free area; back home again last night.

I am not an Internet expert - is there any reason why a "Yahoo search" should produce what is not possible to find by using Google ?.

The PagosaRailroadBlog was a really useful source of info but It seems to have been withdrawn from the Internet.

Thanks,                 Michael

PAGOSA JUNCTION PHOTO (allegedly 1947) :


Hello Mr Stumpy,

We have been away from home in a mostly Internet-free zone until returning home last night - so I haven't been able to properly thank you.

You are of course quite correct - it obviously isn't 1947. I simply took the alleged date as correct, without engaging brain !. I already have photos of the depot area from around 1945 - 1947 which show many more buildings than in my "1947" photo.

Thanks & Regards,


Michael

Hi Michael, there area lot of pics and other forums out there on the Padosa junction.
Came across a NG Discussion on narrow gauge and there are a couple of pics of Padosa Junction going by the pics the junction was active into the late 60's pics are in colour.

As usual the forum pics have copy right, I have saved the link, may be you might know about that forum.

Good to get a break off the internet.

Tony.
