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.

Winter time on the FC&W

We have been getting pounded by storm after storm but the snow looks great.
Now all I need is a plow or a rotary snow plow. The snow has melted quite a bit on the trestle before I could go out there to take this picture.
Waiting till spring to do more work on the railroad.The Fitchburg mogul is in the process of getting new main rod and side rod bronze bushings thanks to Jon Thompson. I should be receiving my new boiler tube and new smoke box soon for my 2 1/2" mogul. Until then....

Running in November..

I took some time off of the railroad to play and run some. On November 2nd I took the train to Williams, Arizona to play for the day for the national railroad historical society. Then on Thanksgiving weekend we went to Maricopa Live Steamers. On Saturday I ran the Fitchburg around the entire layout, which is alot of track for the small mogul. Had a great time and hopefully I can start working on my railroad again soon.
