A point of interest -- I have a feeling that there were many "private" little railroads on private property all over the world.

There was a potter (Barry Brickell - just found him on Google as I had totally forgotten his name) in New Zealand who has built a little railway - very narrow gauge - to bring back clay from where he dug it on his property and to bring in wood for his kiln. He built most of his equipment from cast offs - but now, looks like he has updated considerably. I met him at a workshop in Denver years ago when he was still building and developing his environment. I'm sure Prue knows about this!

Again, the wonderful paths Mr. Ransome leads us on!!!

Eric Abraham - Central Kansas where railroads are mostly passe.
