Bill Spaulding's NP Pike is GONE
Posted by Curmudgeon on Thursday, June 01, 2017 2:46 PM

Featured CTT December 2006.

Last bit came down yesterday afternoon. Many runs to the dump. Some e-bay seller bought most of the rolling stock. No idea who.

26 years....hard to do...I wired the whole thing and helpd build the benchwork.

I did get a HUGE box of used drywall screws out of the deal.

Please note: No offer for sale (it's gone), no mention of money, no soliciting (it's gone).

 

So this is NOT a "for anything" post, just a notification...if you're in the area and want to see it...you can't.

I'll ask the only important question: why did it come down?

First is a link to the website to see the coverage in CTT. Next two are youtubes, no idea (either one of us) who took the videos, but gives you an idea of what it was.

It was so well know in this part of the country, I have colour ptotos of the railroad, and will put them with the youtube links in an envelope and give them to the new owners, so they will know why folks show up at the door from time to time.

as builtToday

I tried to get into the same spot to take a photo of the room as it is now to compare with what it was a month ago.

Everything is gone, no longer on the premisis. The fluorescents are gone, replaced by can lights, screw holes filled, walls repainted, new carpeting, ready for an entertainment room for the new owners of the house.

 

Almost all the track is here, all the switches are here, almost all the wiring is here, control panels and control systems are all here.

I'll get some photos up later of some of the engines that are here.

Funny how upturned noses are to: repainted into another road name, detailed, made more functional, equipment becomes to the "collector mentality".
