Good morning all. Judging by my screen name, you may have figured out I scuba dive for a living. I have noticed over the last few months there are a couple other divers on The Gauge, (Old Tanker and others). Have any of you dived the Bonne Terre Mines in Missouri?? It is an old abandoned lead ore mine frome the turn of the century that is now full of crystal clear water. It still has all the mining equipment, tools and buildings underwater in a labyrinth of trails and tunnels. There is also a narrow gauge loco and various ore cars and tracks, etc. I have dived there several times over the years, but have never been in a position to focus on the railroad. I usually am leading tourists around the more accessible areas. Would anyone like to plan to meet there sometime and railfan the railroad equipment?? It is an awesome dive!! It is about an hour south of St. Louis, about a 12 hour drive from here in Dallas. I am in the planning stages for an n-scale layout, I have benchwork and foam, playing around with track plans now. I am thinking about trying to recreate the railroad in the mines. Anyone interested??
