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

April 10, 2010

First Section of the C-21 arrives.

The first section of my C-21 (the frame) arrived from Colorado this week. It came in 2 boxes fully machined and was waiting for someone to put it together. Well it didn't take me long to head to the garage and spend a couple hours assembling it.
I'm 5' 9" so you can see how long this 2-8-0 is gonna be.
Alex wanted a ride already. He didn't care if it didn't have wheels under it yet.
Next section will be the spring rigging, then the pilot truck after that.
