Welcome to my Web Blog.

This is to keep all my friends updated on what's going on with the FC&W and my other railroad adventures. The name Flagstaff, Coconino and Western came from Flagstaff, where I live, Coconino is the county, and Western is where I go to visit other clubs and railroads. I will try and update it on a regular basis.


The 2 1/2" scale D&RGW C-21 Project

Update on the railroad construction.

Well I have been making some more headway on the railroad when I have time, being I'm the only one working on it at this point. I have finally made it to the other end with the trestle! All thats left is to put the outer 2x4's on top and put the ties and rail down. I have also been working on track panel construction and have 120' down and ballasted. Not bad for a single man crew.
The other end of the trestle, all thats left is some more fill for the track.
Freshly cut railroad ties for the trestle waiting to be ripped in half.
Some of the 120' thats been ballasted and ready to go! Can't wait until the day I can run my steamer on it!

Wow! It looks like you have been very busy on your railroad as I can see. It's so nice to be able to follow a project like yours thru pictures. Thanks...
I think you may need to establish an extra board to run the trains once you get it all up and running. Ha ha

Nice work...
