Gregg,

Do you have anything tucked away from the Cleveland area?

In the latest issue of The Diamond from ELHS, there is a big write up on Cleveland with a detailed railroad map of the whole city including the ore docks.

Alas, no, all my slides were lost in my move from Cleveland to Baltimore in late 1964. Everything's later than that.

Lenny & Red Rock,

Could you post basic details for us poor colonials who like what we are seeing, but haven't got a clue what it is we are really looking it.

Wes :)

Jeff,

Love the CSX photos, especially like that L&N 3-bay hopper! The truck I have never seen before, cool modeling project.

Didn't (doesn't) someone make a MOW truck rather like that one but with more of a general purpose bed instead of the flatbed? Is this showcase miniatures truck what I'm thinking of http://www.walthers.com/exec/productinfo/654-11

Some more steam from around the world.....

A South African Railways 4-8-2 Class 15F at De Aar in June 1976



A Indonesian Railways 2-4-0 built by Sharp Stewart of Manchester in 1880 and
seen at Slahung in August 1978



An ex South African Railway's 8th class 4-8-0 working on an industrial line in Natal in July 1976



Cheers, Wes
