Photos on the Third Division

The main trestle on the branch line from Crawford up to Summit was stick-built from scratch by the late Ralph Edwards. The West Central Main Line is in the foreground.

West Central No. 1217, a C-2 class Consolidation type steam engine, eases its train over the Third Division's main wooden trestle on a dark, dreary, late afternoon in 1938.  The loco is a Bachmann Spectrum.

 

The arch bridge on the Third Division branch line.  A modified Life-Like kit constructed by club member Dennis Hamilton.  He also did the background painting of the forest, upper lake, and waterfall.  The late Ralph Edwards modeled the lower lake and rock areas.  Edwards got the trees from his wife's flower bed.

 

West Central Consolidation No. 1217 begins crossing the arch bridge.  The engine was painted and numbered for the West Central by Dennis Hamilton.

These trestles are over Redwood Gulch on the West Central Model Railroad.  The upper wooden trestle is on the Third Division branch line.  The lower steel and concrete trestle is on the West Central Main Line.
