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

2 1/2" Hopper Car Update

Well I have been out in the garage burning up some welding wire working on my hopper car. The more I weld on, the heavier it gets. Its turning out good so far.
The prototype car is this one at the Durango and Silverton in Durango,Co. Orginally a East Broad Top coal car it now hauls ballast for the D&S.

This looks like a good project. You must have made scaled down drawings of the prototype. Lots of welding.

You know, that frame work looks great, but....if you would switch from Pepsi to beer you would get a lot more work done!!
See you soon;
