    Rio Negro & San Luis Valley Railroad

    I'm still prospecting for real state for my pike, so no e-passes yet (track laying scheduled to start this summer).

    Until then, I'm busy collecting virtual funds with these RN&SLV stock certificates. :D

    Wow - that's very impressive Javier! Nice idea too. Don't spend all your virtual funds in one place!

    Un amigo desde Ciudad de Zamboanga

    Hi, there, Javier :

    Como esta, mi amigo? I hope you still remember me (?)! I had my computer crashed way back and I lost your address. I since searched high and low (in the web) for your address with no luck until I came to THE GAUGE! I still have your Certificate and it graces the wall of my (our) hobby room.

    Nice to "see" you again.....Vaya con dios y hasta la vista!!!

    Hi, Friends

    Thanks for the nice words! :oops: :D
    I'm a bit busy this days, but I hope that nex week the things will be lighter. So, if you want some personalized RN&SLV certificates, send me a private message and let me know to who name should they be entitled (and your e-mail), and I will «churn» some specially for you. ;)
    (only have in mind that these pics are BIG, so your email software can take some time to download them)

    Regards

    PS
    Nice to hear from you, Farouk. ¡Un saludo, amigo! :wave:

    That is pretty sharp. You did not put down that the stock is absolutely worth nothing. Would W&N takes off and you sell it for 3000.00 you are going to have to pay off their shares. Could be like Enron Stock.

    Nice job.

    Having made a share certificate some time ago for my pike, not that it raised very much money :cry: , I thought I post it here to revitilise this thread.
    I may well produce an E pass in the near future, once the wiring is completed and tested.

    My two er five cents worth!

    I am finally looking beyond the logging mining and Industrial section at Zealot, and found this thread.

    This certificate is for the State Line Railroad, a narrow gauge operation that feeds iron ore and logs to my DG, CC, & W RR

    When this cerificate was drawn (back in the dawn of time , before computers were found in the household), at that time, The State line RR was wholly imaginary, as a narrow gauge RR partly owned by my RR and Mack Montgomery's M, C, & E. The M C & E has reverted to the M & N G, and the State Line Railroad now exists up on top of Iron mountain

    No stock certificates, but...

    With all my spare time in Afghanistan, I'm surprised I never thunk about making stock certificates. However I did make some other ephemera of interest, such as a date-accurate calendar from 1940, custom waybills with the railroad's logo, and letterhead. Somewhere down the line, I'd love to have a Zippo engraved with the WRRy's logo on it.

    I'll have to get on that sometime...

    Wow, did they really have a picture of a woman posted on it. I know that was popular back then. It may seem politically correct, but it never bothered me! :)

    I haven't found any railroad calendars that had pin ups on them, it was mostly gas stations and feed mills that I found had pin ups on. But it's my railroad and I'm calling the shots on this one :).

    In the works is also a rulebook for the WRRy. I'm taking guidelines from a Milwaukee Road and Green Bay and Western rulebook as well as ideas from a fellow model railroaders rulebook who models the 1890's. It's been a while since I've touched that but since I don't have a layout of my own it really isn't a priority. So for now, I'll paint and decal my rolling stock and tinker with my lokies to get them in top running shape.
