- Welcome Phil
Glad to have you on board. The F&CC is a railroad I know little about
but it looks interesting. Please tell us about your plans for motive
power on the F&CC.

- Hi Mike,
Welcome to the group. I wondered why we never heard anything else about your S&T layout. I was sad to read it no longer exists. That photo of the Mason Bogie on the tall curved trestle, clinging to a sheer cliff is one of the most dramatic photos of a model I've ever seen! I would love to read more about your experiences with Malcolm and of your layout.
Could you tell us a little about how you and Malcolm came to the design of the S&T and include some of the layout specifications?
I would also love to know a little more on how you both composed a scene to be so dramatic.
Please keep us up to date on your current layout as well.
Are you planning to attend the Narrow Gauge Convention in Denver this year?
