This is steam but here is a clip showing portions of the line including the=
switchback. Send me an Email offline I may have some pictures of diesels =
on that branch.

Subject: [DRGW] Monarch Branch



Many years ago, I recall seeing pics (or it may have been a flim clip) of t=
he Monarch branch, at the switchback adjacent to a highway crossing. There =
were also a few stores or other buildings nearby - was that the actual town=
of Monarch? The limestone train, headed by a GP7 or similar, came up the l=
ower grade into a short dead-end section with a few gons, reversed and then=
pushed the empies up what appeared to be a horrific grade (I guess it was =
something like 4-1/2 percent).Now that I think about it, there were also so=
me pics of the mine loading area itself.


Anyway, I'm trying to find those pics or videos for a friend, who wants to =
model the branch. Can anyone help?


Thanks in advance - Rob Westdyke
