Unknown frame

Gents, I have an unknown frame... It is of the x-6-x variety. Judging from the size of the frame, I suspect either a 4-6-2 or 4-6-4. Unfortunately, in my contact with the owner of LE, it was determined that it's NOT a LE product. I can also attest to this, as a friend is building his 1" pacific, and...

Au contraire.

Yesterday, around 9:00 PM, it was estimated that the water was 2ft over the crossing at Grand Ave. in Glencoe. They took all of the tools and machinery out of the...

tim, if you remember the creek behind the ticket booth -- my dad said that the creek was NOT MORE than 5 feet below the actual floor of the ticket booth. This is how close the WFPRR was, at the time my dad was there. I think it was ~6:00 PM CST.

Concerns for the St. Louis live steam groups

For those not in the know, the St. Louis Live Steamers are just miles from the WFPRR, and I do not know how much of an elevation ...
