Colorado Narrow Gauge 2024 Wall Calendar

$15.95

A rail-fan favorite, Colorado Narrow Gauge pictures the trains of the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad. Established in 1870, the Rio Grande eventually operated 2,783 miles of track connecting Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. Serving mountain communities, farms, and mines from the 1800s into the mid-1900s, the Rio Grande ran trains through mountain gorges, and across the highest rail mainline in America to deliver on the D&RG’s early motto, “Through the Rockies, not around them.”

Narrow gauge trains featured in this edition include:
• Denver and Rio Grande Western 476 and 478 have stopped at Needleton, CO, to take on water. It is June 1, 1957, the second day of a three-day excursion on the Rio Grande narrow gauge.
• Denver and Rio Grande 487 is on the point of a southbound freight on the Farmington Branch about five miles south of Cedar Hill, NM, on October 30, 1963. At this time, the San Juan Basin Oil Boom was slowing down and most weeks would only see one train on the Farmington Branch.

• Denver and Rio Grande Western 482 is on the point and 486 is a rear-end helper (both are Class K-36 Mikado 2-8-2’s.) on an 11 car east bound Cumbres Turn coming through the east end of the Narrows, a little more than a mile west of Lobato, NM, on June 3, 1957.
• Here is a view of Galloping Goose #4 as originally built, sitting in front of the Ridgway roundhouse on June 29, 1944. Its appearance would completely change during the winter of 1945.

• Denver and Rio Grande Western 490, a Class K-37 Mikado 2-8-2, has a southbound Farmington Turn just starting out of Durango Yard in August 1958.
• Fall colors are at their peak as Denver and Rio Grande Western 498 leads an east-bound freight across the Lobato Trestle four miles east of Chama, NM, in October 1956. The consist is a string of empty flat cars and pipe gondolas being returned to Alamosa for loading more pipe.
• Denver and Rio Grande Western 464, a Class K-27 Mudhen is leading a Silverton mixed train northbound at Rockwood, CO, on September 12, 1956. This is one of an order of 15 locomotives purchased from the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1903.

Images featured in this edition include:
≈ The destroyer Hawkins (DD 873) transits the waters between Corsica and Sardinia during one of a series of Mediterranean deployments with the Sixth Fleet. Destroyer Sailors think of their ships as “workhorses of the Fleet,” and Hawkins’ thirty-plus years of service across the Atlantic, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Mediterranean give evidence of this proud claim.
≈ A Los Angeles-class attack submarine of Submarine Group Seven at sea, with a Mystic-class rescue submersible stowed in a cradle on her deck. Armed with Harpoon and Tomahawk missiles as well as antisubmarine torpedoes, newer Los Angeles-class submarines can also lay mines. Retractable bowmounted diving planes let them operate under ice.
≈ An embarked combat artist shares his impression of an enemy ship torpedoed and sunk by a surfaced submarine in a night attack. Since radar was only making its first appearances during World War II, this “boat” is being directed by the eyes and optics of her crew.
≈ Many artists in the Far East made a good living painting pictures of naval and merchant ships for sale. An unknown artist did this likeness of Olympia during her 1895-1898 service as flagship of the Asiatic Fleet. In 1898 she flew the flag of Commodore George Dewey during the battle of Manila Bay, and is preserved as a memorial at Philadelphia. U.S. Navy ships were painted white with buff upperworks from the 1890s through 1908 to make crew spaces a bit more livable in those days before air conditioning.
≈ Explosions, flares, and tracers light up the night in the crisscrossing channels of the Rung Sat swamp, the strategic area in Vietnam between Saigon and the South China Sea. An inshore patrol craft (PCF), popularly known as a “Swift boat,” engages Viet Cong ambushers with machine guns, small arms, and an 81mm mortar.
≈ A trick of the atmosphere makes gunfire-support destroyers appear to be blowing smoke rings over the bitterly-contested landing beaches at Peleliu during the Pacific campaign of World War II. Ships’ gunfire and carrier planes backed up assault landings and lent powerful artillery support to troops fighting ashore.
≈ The ammunition ship Firedrake (AE 14) replenishes an aircraft carrier of Task Force 77 in the icy waters off North Korea. Mobile logistics lessons earned during World War II would reemphasize their value off Korea and, later, off Vietnam.
≈ A CH-53 heavy-lift helicopter stands ready aboard USS Dubuque (LPD 8) as plans are formulated for Operation End Sweep, the clearance of mines from North Vietnamese waters after the signing of the Paris accords. Designed as amphibious troop carriers, the size and power of the CH-53 suited it for the new task of airborne minesweeping.
≈ A French fleet, under Admiral Comte de Grasse, defeats Admiral Thomas Graves’ British fleet attempting to relieve Lord Charles Cornwallis’ besieged army at Yorktown near the end of the Revolutionary War. Cut off from reinforcement and supplies, Cornwallis surrenders to the American- French army under General George Washington and General Comte de Rochambeau. De Grasse’s success made Cornwallis’ surrender, and American independence, inevitable.
≈ For more than a quarter-century the A-4 Skyhawk, affectionately called “Heinemann’s hot rod” in tribute to its principal designer, played a key role in Navy and Marine Corps aviation. The Skyhawk proved its worth in Southeast Asia, carrying a major share of combat operations in North and South Vietnam. Nearly three thousand Skyhawks were produced, serving in both U.S. and foreign air forces. Forrestal (CVA 59), the first “super carrier” was not only
the first aircraft carrier built after World War II, it was also the first built specifically to operate jet aircraft.
≈ The double-turreted monitor Onondaga saw Civil War service in the James River, where she supported Federal troops advancing on Richmond. Laid up after Appomattox, she was sold to her builder who, in turn, sold her to the French Navy. This artist’s rendition illustrates the vulnerability of Civil War monitors. With freeboard measured in inches, they worked well on rivers and in coastal waters but were poorly suited to blue-water operations.
≈ The artist portrays a timeless scene: a sailor stands his watch in the hours before morning with moonlight his only company. Perhaps his thoughts turn to loved ones at home as he looks out across the expanse of ocean and listens to the sighing of the wind.

The FA’s were built by the American Locomotive Company as 1,600-horsepower units. They were used mainly in freight service, but could and were also used in passenger, mail, and troop-train service on occasion.
≈ Baltimore and Ohio 7154, a Class EL-5a (2-8-8-0) is teamed up with 6222, an S-1a (2-10-2) on a heavy westbound manifest, with SA Tower off to the right side. The summit of Sand Patch is just ahead of the train, which has another S-1a pushing behind the caboose. The 26 Class EL-5s were built by Baldwin in 1919 and 1920, and they served the B&O for more than 30 years before being retired.
≈ Baltimore and Ohio 6209, a 1,600-horsepower Model AS-16 built by Baldwin in 1955, has a transfer freight in tow at Cincinnati, OH on October 30, 1965. B&O had sixteen of these engines in service.
≈ Baltimore and Ohio Class P-7 Pacific (4-6-2) 5305 was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1927. The locomotives were designed for passenger train service and were named after United States Presidents. 5305 was originally named President Monroe. It was eventually rebuilt by the Mount Clare Shop and assigned number 5305. It is seen here making a station stop on November 9, 1955 at Zanesville, OH with westbound Train 233.

Southern Pacific Railroad 2024 Wall Calendar

$15.95

Southern Pacific Railroad began with a simple idea: to connect San Francisco and San Diego, California, by rail.
