A Video Tour of the CR&NW

So I got out a little camera I had lying around tonight, built a photo flat car out of an old flat and some six wheel passenger trucks, and put a couple GP38-2s to work pushing it around the layout.  The track is in from the Kennecott Mill all the way down to Eyak, but it’s only powered as far as Katalla Junction right now, so that’s as far as we went.

Come imagine for a moment that you’re on the back of the CRNW’s business car with me, traveling the “Plywood Pacific” that is the CR&NW as it currently exists.The CR&NW Business Train

Forgive the basement mess, it’s been a very active construction zone for weeks now, and as such is a bit of a disaster.

    I enjoyed your video tour and admire your ambition.
    My Grandfather and Uncle both worked on the CR&NW in the 1930s.
    I have not been able to visit the northern terminus but have traveled the old roadbed fro Cordova to a few yards past the Million Dollar Bridge.

    Been studying the KCC mill and crnw railway over several months. Wonder what the mine workers and mill workers ate most every day for 27 years ? I see they had a couple cows and a morgue behind the repair shop.
