|Doug is an seasoned international
traveler who brought a flair for overseas models to our club. He
returned the favor to his friends in the Freiamter
Eisenbahn Amateur Club; Wohlen,
Switzerland in October, 2002 when he presented them with models of
Pacific & Eastern rolling stock. Posing with Doug (click on
the picture) is his host, Heinz Burri.

Doug Howard graciously wrote a report of his travels for the club, which may be viewed here.
Sunday public run days, the Club allows all manners of power and
rolling stock to be run on the Pacific & Eastern. Doug
availed himself to this opportunity by breaking out some of his
international trains and taking them on a tour of the modular
layout. He has an interesting habit of giving his locomotives
exotic European names. Here we see Victoria speeding past a small
lake on Bruce McGarvey's scenic modules.

Before long, club members started referring to Doug's locomotives as his "harem".

Doug moved to Indiana a few years back and we sure miss his his eclectic fleet of equipment on Sunday public run days.
