I have been infatuated with the St. J&GI engine facilities in Marysville since the purchase of “UNION PACIFIC”S CENTRAL DIVISION HUB MARYSVILLE, KANSAS” at the 1995 UNION PACIFIC HISTORICAL SOCIETY Omaha convention. This book serves as one of my most valued modeling references and this book has inspired several models, including the roundhouse.
I will, from time to time, present UPRR modeling projects I am working on in the belief the reader may find the work interesting, useful, or inspiring. Links to the relevant Blogs will appear on this page. It is my hope that these Blogs will lead me to like minded modelers. For this reason I encourage readers to take the time to comment on what is read. I am open to questions about UPRR history and the models thus inspired.
