12 Years BCWRR.ORG

by on Jun.10, 2015, under Uncategorized

I just recently passed the 12-year mark of doing the website for the Bitter Creek Western Railroad. It’s a very old design (sort of Jurassic in html history), but still seems to do the job. Very photo-heavy site (many of which I’ve taken over the years).

Vandenberg Harbor

by on Nov.13, 2014, under Uncategorized

Many times I’ve pointed from the train to the “Vandenberg Harbor” and told fellow travelers that rocket segments come in by boat now and then. But I’ve never actually seen it happen before. Well, here we go! I have this vague recollection of helping get funds to dredge that harbor in a previous life. See the train go by in the background (left) at the 4:15 mark (or so). See a fast-motion video of a ship arriving, unloading rocket segments, and leaving – click here (from the Lompoc Record).

Santa Susana Depot

While on a little weekend getaway with Lynn, we stopped in at the Santa Susana Depot. Very nicely done restoration, museum, HO layout, etc. And what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a 3-some of GE 70-tonners pulling a train!
