Once upon a time there was no Evergreen Railroad.

One thing I learned in the 50 years of model railroading that things don't happen on their own.
Three things are needed to accomplish anything and that is time, money and energy. If you have only two
of these things....it does not happen.
Here we have Burt Whitney and Tommy Frank working on Beaver Canyon before trackwork or scenery
can be attempted to be installed. The date is Thursday, Oct. 21, 2008, 51 days ago the doors opened.
This is the front of the club's layout that you have seen many times but I think many of us would not comprehend the work put into this final effort to make it look as
real as we can. This is 8 years after the above photo was taken and many current members were not around to remember where it started. Most guys want to
run trains but construction is the end result of how we got here and that took the creative efforts of more than 2 dozen members to get to this place.
