  1. I am really enjoying going through your website!! I worked out of Greybull for 30 years, and this layout brings back allot of memories for me. I worked the East Run Through Pool for 10 years from 96 to 06, and worked all the locals and yard engines as well the rest of the time. I had thoughts of building a layout running from Thermopolis to Bonneville, through the Wind River Canyon. That was my favorite part of that run from Greybull to Casper. It would have been a fictitious road with several industries in the canyon. Glad to see you are modeling the old Q!!! Keep up the Great work!!!

  2. Hey Mark, I stumbled across your website researching history on the old CB&Q in Wyoming. I’m a bridge inspector for BNSF, and have the Bighorn Subdivision which runs Gillette, WY to Huntley, MT. I also have the Casper Subdivision which runs from Casper, WY to Laurel, MT and the accompanying Cody Subdivision. Please feel free to email me if you need any pictures or other type of help or reference documentation at all. I hi-rail these lines every week.

    1. Hi Ben!
      Great to hear from you – what a fantastic job you have!
      Do you also have the line from Huntley to Laurel, or do you handle two disconnected sections?

      I’ve always been interested in the old Toluca MT to Warren MT branch that was abandoned in 1911. I haven’t been able to find very much on it – would you happen to have any information?

      Thanks for your interest in my website! At some point over the next few months I’ll be fleshing out the History pages a bit (they’re empty now!), so check back in the spring!

      Take care!

  3. Hi Dave,
    Thanks for the comment! Sorry it took so long to reply. No excuse, I just missed your post.
    Is Greybull still a crew change point?
    Your idea for a layout is VERY interesting. Any idea what sort of industries you’d place in the canyon? Please be sure to let me know if you ever decide to go ahead with it.
    Take care!
