Well, it's been a busy Christmas Holiday... wife and I spent yesterday just dumbing out watching the fire burn in the fireplace and watchin' some tube.
Got some business to attend to after I finish making my forum "rounds"... but if I feel like it when finished I intend to work some more on the FS Sub route at Fort Smith.
At this point (and I hope it stays this way), I'm quite comfortable with accepting the reality that I can't build 'em all (i.e. Colorado narrow gauge, coal in the Alleghenies, etc, etc), even though I'd love to. So, I hope the CM and the FS Sub will fill my bill nicely.
Time to start closing this one up. Ah yes... I can't forget a PICTURE!!
Below is another very historic Mike Condren photo. This one taken in the mid-60's and illustrates the evening passenger train #710 from Ft. Smith to Monett meeting a freight at Van Buren. Oh, and by the way, it was not uncommon for train #710 to be powered by one of the Frisco's E-units!
Oh, and did I mention troop trains?
Hmmm... out of time. The troop trains are best left told another time.
