December 02 - Discover Live Steam has awarded Ken Mazer the top prize of a pair of Mountain Car Company 1/8 scale trucks as a result of winning the photo contest. Top honors were awarded to him by a panel of judges coming mostly from the railroad supply industry. Mazer won with a photo taken on the DS&N division last September, when he photographed his own train X241W against a clear blue sky, with GP-50 #241 in the lead, and F-7A 2200 trailing.

A useful group for discussing diesel propulsion in 1/8 scale is found on Yahoo Groups. Started by a Union Pacific conductor who owns a Backyard Rails GP-50, this active group is a friendly place to throttle up!
The Wellsville Addision and Galeton Railroad still has a loyal following. The WAG historical society is a web based cyber society with free membership.
