    I want to thank everyone for the wonderful responses and show of support.
    Since the articles, I've been contacted by a number of people to discuss model railroading, the group forming and the area's railroad history.
    I was informed that one of the first locomotives in this area, (an 1891 Rogers 4-6-0 construction number 4493) is in Ca. and has been in a number of movies and TV shows.
    I did a little research and found this link.
