Member 44 is Robert Whiffen....when will it ever end?

Robert is moving to the Spokane area from the West side of Washington State in late May and wanted to make sure he had a slot at
the Evergreen club when he arrived. Robert is 6' 6" and joins the ranks of our larger members such as Scotty, Rodney and Jesse.
He was a member of the Longview train club and knows Robert Case, an ex-member who also plans to rejoin in Sept. Welcome Robert!

Speaking of Big Boys, here's a model of a real Big Boy, a 4-8-8-4 giant that Union Pacific had several dozen of in the late 40's and 50's.
I think this one was run by Larry Sorenson and if I'm wrong I will hear from the mob that I got it wrong.

It's the Mighty Weso's train featuring a brand new, C-636 Alco that must have just had the wrapping taken off and out of the
Box. That won't last long with the smoke they usually put out and weathered them up like God intended. Steve knows him personally.

I'm switching from Windows Live Mail to Outlook and I can't tell if I showed this train before ( nor can I remember if I did) but this
Baldwin switcher is a Doug N. model that NP ran in the Spokane area in the late 60s. I think that's my flat car?

Another railfan gets caught trespassing on the mighty BNSF tracks and this time he deserves a ticket. I think that's a cop waving
but where is his gun? I wonder if the railfan is a friend of the Ford Model A or Model T club? Maybe its Don Carnegie?
