    I'm wondering if you have any more information about the wreck in 1876 next to lost mountain. Me and my cousin swim that hole quite often and one if the train cars is visible and we have been pulling up train parts and bridge parts left and right off of the bottom. We are very curious and would like to know more about the wreck

    Hi Mike,

    I've been trying to delete my Swap Meet entries( all obsolete) but I can't find a way to do it. Would you rermove them please. Or point me to some documentation?
    Thanks

    Thank you for letting me join your group. I always liked steam engines. Back in the 80s I helped restore the Frisco 1522. Worked on this engine about 4 years.Setup the valve gear and polished all of the running gear. And did some boiler work. Also I owned an 0 4 0 a Baldwin 1912 switch engine that was used a a local gravel plant at Pacific Mo.

    Hello Mr. Wirth,
    I see you are in the Pacific area, I am in Washington and was wondering if there was any chance since we are not that far apart if we could meet sometime. Steam has interested me on and off for a while and seeing that you was very involved with an operating steam era locomotive, would help me understand a bit more about the operations of an engine that size. Please let me know, Thanks.
    Jim

    The caboose lantern was given to my grandfather upon his retirement. The clock was another gift to him.

    Jim, welcome aboard. Did you work out of Wichita on the BNSF? Lot of kids I went to school with work for BNSF in Southeast Missouri still.

    Steve, I wanted to contact you off of Ebay about the GP7. Ebay does not allow us to conduct any business unless it goes through them and they get their cut.
    My email is keith216@centurytel.net. If you decide to sell the GP7, let me know what you want and we can pursue it off of Ebay.

    Thanks, Keith

      Okay yes Ebay wants their fees. I will test it and see what's going on with it I haven't taken it from the box since buying it. I know they are hard to come by and I probably messed up somebody's plans when I won the auction :)
