How about some jets?

Loved them since childhood. My father grew up in Larchmont and could see the 4 track NH Main Line from my grandparents' yard.

Hopefully some of those memories are first hand.

An additional question for you, Peter...

Do you have any data on the short blade left hand semaphores that NH used?  I've been looking for dimensions without success.

Almost missed posting a photo today.  Clark W. Griswold got lost again, on the way to Phoenix, with Aunt Edna trussed up and strapped to the rooftop luggage rack.  Here, the Griswold Family Truckster heads west out of Caprock, Texas.

Lou......sorry, no..........2 suggestions......have you tried the NH Historical Society?    When Model Railroader has one of the 24 hr free look at our Archive offer, see if anyone has done an article.

My grandfather had two careers.  One was for Southern on the CNO&TP.  The other was bridge construction.  Sometimes his two careers crossed paths, such as building the new bridge at Burnside KY.  In the 1950 photo from his collection It's nearing completion over the Cumberland River, soon to be lake.

This is the beginning of my 12 foot of modules that I am adding 6 feet to.....it will remain both urban and industrial. I will be telling the story here:

Work is beginning in earnest. I have to be finished for our show at the Science Museum of Virginia on Thanksgiving weekend.

I've always been in awe of what it takes to be an iron worker. Some of the heights that these people work are truly amazing to me. I don't like being on a step ladder, let alone imagine working at some of the heights they do! 

And as the sunset faded, I spoke to the faintest first starlight.
And I said next time, Next time, We'll get it right!
