Re: NELS Track At The Box Factory

Like most events in life, there were many aspects to "why?" did it happen. Timing and converging circumstances are the keys to history both big and small. One of the reasons I have heard for the rise and fall of Danvers was the fast expansion to the big loop. The original track was a modest 600 or s...

You may enjoy a 16mm film by my grandfather on one of his visits to Danvers.

I missed the meet when someone brought a 3/4" Commodore Vanderbilt...whose engine is that? I'd love to see it!
That is Steve Bratina from Kirkwall (Cambridge) Ontario. He's "The Big Head" of the Tinkerbell Scale Society. All hail The Big Head.

Re: Kirkwall Central

Fantastic news! Let's all lift our leg, I mean a mug of root beer in honour of the track gang.

Re: 85th Anniversary Meet at Montreal - Reminder

Sad to hear we will be running around without our Big Head. You realize that means we Tinks will likely vote you in for another 10-year sentence, I mean term, in absentia? I'll be there with my 3/4" 4-6-0 (A.W. Leggett 1967) and 3/4" 2-8-4 (A.W. Leggett 1950s). I am bringing "Juicy Anna", the first ...

Very good to hear, see u there with that jumbo Atlantic. Built in Canada if I remember correctly. ? Francis was secretary of MLS for a good long while also.
One of the two Atlantics built by Ralph Francis? Both were called "The Canuk".

That would be great to see back on the MLS rails.

Re: 85th Anniversary Meet at Montreal - Reminder

I will be driving over from Michigan. Are there any toll roads to watch out for in Quebec, like the 407 in Ontario? Hi Marty, Great to hear you are coming to our Meet. There are no tolls for thee… head west on the 401 through Ontario. It changes the designation to Autoroute 20 when you cross into Q...

I will be there Saturday afternoon.
Yay! Steve-o is in the roundhouse. The Tinkerbells will hold their annual Big Head elections on Saturday. No trains shall run until the Big Head from Kirkwall arrives.
