Re: NCNG Sidings and loading points
- Hi Group,
My name is Steve Coffey and I just joined the group. I'm a big
fan of the NCNGRR and have been envolved with for many years with
the NCNGProject at the Fairgrounds and also the TMD museum many
years ago. The link you have on this site (Community-webtv/ncng) is
my personal web page that I set up for the NCNGProject. They now
have their own web page at www.ncngproject.org, check it out! I
read most of the postings to catch up and wanted to mention I have
access to old state maps of the NCNG that note all the sidings with
frog numbers and distances, where they were on the mainline, etc. I
haven't looked at them in a long time but I'm pretty sure they
mention the use of the sidings (ice house, lumber mill, etc), but if
the info is out there, maybe we can compare notes and work out the
info without copying Herman's map. He put a lot of work into them
and hopefully will be willing to sell them to us. If I remember,
it's from the early 1900s and may not be accurate if sidings were
added in the 20s or 30s. They are too big to copy but I might be
able to look up some info if it would help.
I'm glad to find another large group of NCNG fans, Later, Steve

Thank you for the new link to the club layout. I hope they decide to
include a track plan some day.
Concerning Herman Darr's siding drawings. I know he sells them
because I bought a copy from him at least a year ago.
