First accomplishments of the year! Hope you all had a happy and safe New Year. Lets pray for a better 2012! On ward! My weekend was extremely productive. Sunday, I called the care taker and historian who over sees the Potter Place stations, general store and all the artifacts. My brother, dad and I got the final measurements I needed, then we met with Pat. Not only did she have pictures of what PP looked like during the era in which I modeled, but she had pictures that showed the town at the turn of the last century. She has been nice enough to scan these and has already emailed them to me. She spent over three hours showing us the pictures, original survey maps and even blue prints for the station. That will make scratch building easier! Monday, I spent the day with my parents researching the Concord & Montreal line of the former B&M, now Pan Am, New England Southern and Hobo RR. The line is still used and is in good shape. I found a lot of stations and cool artifacts, so some time this week I need to upload all of those. No trains unfortunately, but a fun weekend none the less. So how about you? How is the start of your 2012 going? We got a big show coming up here in the North east in a few weeks. The Amherst Society is hosting their BIG Train Show in Springfield MA. If your within 8 hours of this show, you should make plans. Next to Galesburg RR Days, this is my favorite. Leave your responses below, pictures if you have them and we'll do it all over again on Friday the 6th. High Greens & Happy New Year!
