  • Greetings all! Anyone have, or know of a source for, good pictures of the Chicago Park Fruit Packing Shed as it was during the later years of the railroad? Most pictures feature the depot, or tank and the fruit shed is only partially visible. Thank you... Aaron Splawn (Roseville, Ca)

  • All, Last week I purchased a small brass whaleback tender off eBay. I thought it was one of the old PSC/Kemtron Nevada County Narrow Gauge #8 whaleback tenders I've been searching for; however, when it arrived I discovered its the larger SPNG version. So, I've decided to re-list it for sale. I'd like $145.00+shipping, which was the next lowest bid on it. Hopefully that bidder is on...

I'm only aware of Herman's drawings. He has a large selection of NCNG drawings, including the caboose, loco's, boxcars, gondolas etc and are still available. He lives in Colfax just up the road...

  • Wow! Both of those depots look awesome! They are both exactly what I have in mind to build. Did you use Herman's plans for Chicago Park? The Grass Valley depot looks pretty big. Did you draw plans for it? What are the dimensions? I'm likely going to need to do a smaller version, or use the Sierra West Models version as Tom suggested.
