Always looked forward to Tony Koesters Train of Thought column in the Model Railroader and took out a regular subscription when I was working in Athlone about 20 years ago. His "Coal Fork Extension" and a visit to West Virginia lead me to a brief dalliance with an Appalacian coal and logging branch around the time Bachmann brought out their HO Shay, which kind of morphed into On30 and 1:20.3 n the garden though the railroad has move West to Colorado. I am fortunate to have the space that is rare in Ireland and can run round and round or operate a way freight picking up and dropping off cars at a number of towns if the fancy takes me.
If I was going there I would'nt be starting here.
