Title: Good modeling reference - My 2013 Nevada trip
Post by: Ray Dunakin on August 17, 2013, 02:00:41 AM
I've just finished posting a report of my 2013 Nevada/Mojave ghost town trip on my website! It's not directly railroad-related but there's a lot of great reference material for mines, mills and other structures:

http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Nevada_Trip_2013_Part_One.html (http://www.raydunakin.com/Site/Nevada_Trip_2013_Part_One.html)


My 2013 trip was a real adventure in every sense of the word! I saw some wonderfully preserved sites, many historic ruins, and a mine big enough to drive a car in; ancient log cabins and fascinating machinery; thunderstorms, flash floods, wildlife encounters, and a blue sphinx!

I also had a variety of car problems, a near-disaster, and my first-ever call to 911, and being on the receiving end of Mineral County's Search and Rescue! I visited many interesting sites, most of which Id never seen before, and a few I had not seen in many years.


I hope you'll enjoy reading about it. If you discover any broken links or other issues, please let me know. Also I'd appreciate hearing any suggestions as to how I could improve the site or make it easier to navigate.

Nope, I usually go to see the Nevada Northern but I stayed in the western side of the state this year.

However, on this trip I found out that the Southern Pacific Narrow Gauge #18 is being restored for operation, in Independence, CA! I would love to see that loco run!
