Our club is very proud to have (Life Member) Bill Shepherd. In addition to being one of our members Bill is a big cog in the operations at Train Mountain. He built the cabin he lives in during the summer at Train Mountain on property he owns in the middle of their huge property. Bill even has tracks to his front door!! There are over 37 real miles of track at Train Mountain.
There are quite a few vids of Train Mountain. I recently found this one which I particularly like because it shows the huge variety of seven and a half inch gauge locos. It also shows the large number of railroads that the locos represent. And, as the vid shows not all seven and a half inch gauge locos are the same size. At the end of the vid are shots of a magnificent 4-8-8-4 Big Boy. I’ve watched the movie three times already!!!!!
