Re: More home movies 1970's Clint Ensworth, etc

Used to always see Bob Christman and his wife at the Finger Lakes meets in the 1980's. He had a picture book of how he changed the engine from a gas driven model to a live steamer.

The Pacific which is shown throughout the video is owned by the son of the builder who just recently joined the NJLS and is shown on their newsletter with the engine. He may be the kid driving the...

There is a film by Fred Motton which shows the tank engine running with a young fellow ( maybe you) running it at PVLS. Jim Leggett would be the guy to contact for info on how to get a copy of this film.

In the second film, the guy on the high line with the CNJ 0-4-0 tank engine is Mike Field from Canada I believe. The Hild Pacific shows up again along with George Dimonds CNR Mountain. Those were good days back then is seems.

Re: PVLS 1973 or 4, short movie

The first three engines and people were Lewis Bullock and his Atlantic. Harold with the Niagara, and Sparky with the girl who is the granddaughter of Hild, the builder of the engine. She is the one who sold Rob the engine several years back at PVLS.

Re: NELS Track At The Box Factory

I don't know why the pictures are upside down. They are the right way on my computer and as Keith says, they expand the right way.

Re: Kirkwall Central

One more shot from the day. I was going to go with Harold Crouch to visit with Carl Cantola but unfortunately he passed away that year. I bet he had many stories to tell about these two engines.
