Sounds like someone didn't do their homework.

Krey was founded in 1882 so their 50 year anniv. would have been 1932.

The Black Hills Central in South Dakota is a good place to chase the train. It crosses over the road at a few places so you can take pics, drive across and ahead of it, take pics, and do it all again.

One of the neatest things I've done is to follow the route of the old Transcontinental Railroad (as much as possible) from  Omaha to Sacremento. Lots of two lane blacktop, gravel and dirt roads to try to stay close to the route.

The late 1800's - Somewhere west of the Mississippi. 
Just watching and hearing the old steamers is a thrill. All those visible moving parts and the sounds of the loco leaving the station or working it's way up a grade.

The Jeff Johnson book is a good one. Not for the Amazon price though. That's ridiculous.
I had the RTR Shay and was backdating it. Then I had my hear attack and amnesia and it never got done.

I've used saws and cutoff wheels.
I like cutoff wheels the best. Get the ones that are multi-layered and black. The thin tannish ones do tend to shatter easily.
Be very careful and hold the rails because they can come loose from the roadbed with the back and forth motion from the saw.
Is it possible to just adjust the track plan to accommodate standard EZ Track pieces? 
The only pieces I ever cut now are the turnouts when I need a stub turnout.
Don't forget the 2" EZ Track straights that aren't sold separate from the crossings.

Anyone remember when railroad emblems used to come in cereal boxes? In the 50's maybe?

Interesting conversation. I've always used engine or motor interchangably to describe something that created power.
Some guys work on the "motor" in their car, some work on the "engine".
In my younger years I liked steam engines (Still do). I had an Aurora Model Motoring set. I use to belong to the National Motoring Club or something that.
Driver, operator, motorman, engineer...does a feller have to carry a dictionary with him to figure out what he is at any given time.
I use to have a job where my title was "push broom operator".

Jim - I wasn't aware there was a difference between "engine" and motor".
