Staring at that photo long enough, I'm not so sure that a bell isn't there--just a little too small for the harp----m--o-r---e   co --f--f ee! !!

Keith, thanks for the posting. Just more great information. Do you have the drawing by Joe, you posted? He has generated a number of great snatches of the Gilpin.

Will you be attending the NNGC this year, I will be plus giving a clinic on the Rocks of Colorado.

Herb:  Yes, Shay #1 in the 927th post did have a bell - it would have needed it for its service on the Silver City, Pinos Altos, and Mogollon!

Monte: I do have Joe's sketches. He released the one I posted and several others as prints of color sketches. I wonder if he first issued some line drawings which he later colored? Joe is a wonderful artist, and his drawings catch the flavor of the line. I framed these, and put them in the hallway next to my hobby room.



I will also be attending the NNGC in Augusta next month. It'll be great to see you again!

Are any other followers of this Gilpin thread also attending the NNGC next month?

Keith

I avidly follow, Keith, but anymore about 35 miles is my radius of operation--and I think that the convention is a little past that point. Darn---grumble,mumble.

Superb wall hangings! Is my jealousy showing?

Herb

Keith, very nice collection of Joe's art work. Will have to talk with Joe and see if he has any more or others.

At the NNGC we should get together and talk about a clinic in Denver related to the Gilpin, mines and the geology - explaining why there were so many mines in a very small area, plus about the ore bodies.

See you in less than a month.

Monte

Monte,

Yes, let's get together at the Augusta NNGC and discuss Gilpin matters. I would also be interested in a joint clinic with you for the 2017 Denver NNGC.

Right now, I am spending some time planning for how to model Black Hawk. I came across some more info on the engine house area, so I will post that next.

Keith

I am a new member and was brought to FreeRails just for this fourm thread. I must thank Keith Pashina profusely for all the great information and photos of the Gilpin area. Just what I was looking for, I was referred here by John Garaty from the MRH Forums. This forum is amazing and I've quickly blown a whole evening and night plus today reading and catching up on all the great Gilpin area information.

Much appreciated Keith and everyone else who has posted information and photos here.

Sincerely,
Chriss

Hi Chriss,
Glad I could point you in the right direction and welcome aboard.
Given how specific some of the stuff you mentioned on MRH was, I figured you could shortcut to here.

Sorry for costing you an evening of modelling time, but I figure the inspiration gained is worth it :2t:

Not at all John! I thoroughly enjoyed it all, so much great stuff here, it's going to take some time to catch up with it all. Looking forward to it and the NG&SL Gazette DVDs I just ordered from Bob Hayden, he is selling the complete set searchable on computer discs from issue #1 to 2014.

Thanks again John - a great reference and resource.

Chriss :2t:

Keith;
Do you have a better scan of that drawing? I can't read the numbers :mex:

On a different note: If'n I get to Denver in 2017, is it worth a trip to Gilpin Co. I'm in an electric wheelchair so access is a challenge :old dude: :slow:

MORE NOTES ON GILPIN TRAM ORE CARS
I had mentioned previously that the C&S had proposed to build new ore cars, this time all-steel and of a larger size. To my knowledge, these cars were never built, but it's fun to speculate what would have happened if they had. This car was BIG - about 3' longer than the other ore cars, and with correspondingly larger capacity
