Re: Mogul Kit Differences

Kyle-

I believe the owner's first name is Robert, I don't know his last. I believe he frequents the Sagebrush Shortline in California. He told me that it is a Railroad Supply mogul, but I didn't inquire as to modifications that were made from the original plans/design.

Re: Mogul Kit Differences

One other point of interest- #1828 that was built by Andi Clereci was last owned by Sellar Nugent.

He stopped coming around as Train Mountain took off, as he became heavily invested in that ra...

Re: Mogul Kit Differences

Kyle- SP #1829 in the video is mine, and is indeed a LE mogul. This photo might be of interest to you, as Robert brought his Railroad Supply mogul to Sacramento a few years ago, and we were able to double head. Gives a comparison of the two.

Re: SP NG Diesel #1 (GE 50T) - Triennial or Bust

That is unfortunate, and I'm sorry that happened to you. I had an incident with my electric locomotive at Train Mountain last weekend that required help. The first two people I asked said no, not to be mean, but they were already committed to helping someone else at that moment. The third person I a...
