    Hi Ken
    I always say I will but I'll say it again I'll try to take some photos. I plan on running some Milw freight. Maybe 70 cars or so. My power will be Kato SD40-2s and I have 1 SD45. I'm also trying to get my 1947 Hiawatha finished. Not sure about power unti I get my F7s in the spring. Maybe I'll us FTs or E6s.

    Be sure to look through older threads as well. Greg built a couple of other projects prior to this present endeavor. Which were spectacular in their own right.

    Just wanted to drop a quick note and let everyone know that I'm going to be displaying my Renslow Trestle Model at the Pacific Northwest Railroad Prototype Modelers Meet in Bellevue WA this coming Sunday (May 4, 2008). I will be bringing a total of 13 feet of my layout. Wont be able to run any trains but this section will be on display.

    For info on the show see: http://www.northwestrpm.com/RPM_Meet.htm

    Greg-

    What sort of comments did your display receive?

    A question-

    What is Steve Depolo doing now? He switched from Milw Lines West electrified, to freelance O scale steam short line. Now I see AT&SF diesels? (What scale?)

    Greg,

    From what I've seen, you've tremendous talent. Keep up the good work. I don't model the Milwaukee but I've always been admirer of the line and the many scenes that it has to offer. Though I do the NP, I couldn't leave out the Milwaukee entirely so I managed to find a rib-sided caboose and an Atlas-Kato RS1, both in the old paint schemes. We'll have an interchange point where the MILW has trackage rights, runs a local and interchanges cars with the NP. I hope to have it done in a couple of months, time permitting. Again excellent diarama and that bridge work is shaping up into an incredible structure.

    Greg: Beautiful modules and great pictures of the meet, too.

    Anyone know of a prototype modelers meet in Texas? I've never heard of one. Thanks.

    Flash-

    Good question. I'm not acquainted enough with those folks to be sure. I have heard of meets in such places as the St. Louis area, Illinois, Pacific NW, and a couple of other sites. Not certain if they're simply loose knit groups. Or if there's a parent organization somewhere. Google?
