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

The D&RGW #50 Project

Well some work has been done since I brought home a pile of rusted parts. A 3M wheel to remove the rust and a coat of primer really makes things look better. Still looking for a electric drive system to operate it. Also need to buy all the castings for the remander of the locomotive.

The prototype in the Durango Yard many years ago.

The frame after derusting and sandblasting. Once I bolted it together I couldn't move it, it's really heavy.

Cab and hood parts primed and ready to be put together. You can see the hood sides at the top of picture and the compressor cover that haven't been derusted and primered yet.
