1965 PHOTOGRAPHS OF COLTON, CAL. S.P. ENGINEHOUSE

A younger version of The Old Machinist took these photographs with the idea of constructing a model of the engine house someday.  Well, someday never came because I abandoned ” The Friendly” and became a modeler of “Uncle Pete”. Maybe there is a young modeler out there who will make “someday” happen for the now gone Engine House. I would like to believe the art of scratch-building will live on. Well, I do have hope it will.

About THE OLD MACHINIST

I am 87 years old and married for 65 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoyed my life and I am trying to look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity.
