Hi: Does anyone have pictures or plans for the depot at Victorville? Thanks for you help.
This most likely isn't what you're lookin' for, dwight77, but it's
all I could find
BTW, Victorville, CA has 7 KFC's, 9 Burger Kings, and 13 McDonalds.
Also it's still served by Amtrak. :thumb: It's amazing how much useless
info you can find on the web
Hi: It is Victorville, Ca. Our club is modeling the Santa Fe etc through Cajon pass, Sullivans Curve, etc. I appreciate the pic on the side of the Victorville depot. That is a start. At least gives some colors and materials. Thanks for your help
Just past the Victorville depot less than 1/2 mile towards Barstow is a huge aggregate plant where they process rock for concrete. Just past the aggregate plant is "Rocky Park" where the Santa Fe main passes through some very interresting granite outcroppings along side of the Mojave River. I have some pics if I can figure out how to reduce them enough to post here.
Hi Russ: I and my club members would really like to see your pictures if you can get them loaded. We are especially interested in the Victorville Depot and if you had pictures of the aggregate plant that would be super too as we are scratch building an aggregate or cement plant for the same area. And if you had pictures of the Rocky Park that would be most interesting. So anything along those lines would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for responding.
Dwight, I just sent you a p.m. My pics are 2160 x 1440, and with Kodak Easy Share, I can't find any way to reduce the pics unless I'm printing them. If you send me an answer, let me know with a brief reply here. I find that the notice of a p.m. on the Gauge is so small that I often miss p.m.s for a long time.
Hi Russ: I read your private message first and responded to it...lol....Anyway, I told the guys at the club today that we may have more pics coming and they were excited...especially the guy doing the aggregate plant. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org , if you could send one pic I will see what happens. If I have to make an oversize print that wont be a problem. Again, thanks for all your help.
I just sent off one pic to you. As soon as I hear from you that you are ready for more, I'll send them. I think I'll limit them to no more than three pics per email, and no more than two emails at a time to keep from overwhelming your mail box. Just email me when you are ready for more, and if you can get them reduced, feel free to post them on the Gauge.
Hi Russ: Your pic of the aggregate plant came out great and on one page after my software worked it. I am trying to figure out how to post it on The Guage. I need to work on that a bit as far as attaching pics. But I would love to receive any other pics you have of the area. Also, I was wondering if you had any pics of the Northern Mohave railroad that were used in the area. I think that is the right name for the train.
Again, appreciate all your help.
There is a free software that Jon Monon used to recommend for image manipulation (including re-sizing), called GIMP. You can download it here: http://www.gimp.org/
This thread: http://www.the-gauge.com/thread14122-posting-pics-on-the-gauge.html will show you how to attach photos on the Gauge.
Hope this helps.
Hi Spitfire: Thanks for the link on how to upload pics. I tried the first pic but unfortunately it is too large......1.75 mb and the largest allowed is 65kb.
I will keep trying as the new pics arrive.
Dwight, you have mail.
Hi Russ: I got them all...really great pics and I do (and my club does) appreciate your taking the time and effort to send them to me.
