Doug with gifts 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.

"Victoria" speeds past a fisherman
On 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.
"Simone" at Butte Falls Simone, a classy French TGV, overtakes a lowly freight on Dave Spakousky's Butte Falls 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.
