Re: Garden railroads


Yes I've seen some pictures of model railroads on the mining theme and they
are very fine.  Someone around here must have one.  Grass Valley and Nevada
City have all those cute Victorian houses and there are still a lot of old
vaguely historic buildings here and it would be easy to get ideas for
something here.   Going further off topic, the local historical society has
a railroad division and they have a short (1/2 mile or so) railroad along
the route of the old local railroad.  It's official name was "Nevada County
Narrow Gauge" but it's nickname was "Never Come Never Go." Gotta love it!
