Thanks for visiting ……
My name is Tony Phillips. I was unanimously voted...
- historian for our Model Railroad Club here in Fort Bragg. Which really means I was the sucker the members thought would take the job! I have been extremely lucky to team up with Roger Thornburn who is the genius behind the scenes doing all the code and mirrors and flim flam stuff on this website - and he's English too so he knows what I'm talking about when I complain about my aching "plates of meat." I see my job as assembling for the club members/world at large the material I and the Club have collected and I and the Club have been given into some semblance of order. The focus is not to create a history of the Mendocino Coast but to provide historical background to all the dioramas we are trying to include in our layout. To all those who have helped me - a HUGE thank you. t
