San Antonio de Bexar Railroad

Welcome to the inaugural post to the inception of the San Antonio de Bexar Railroad Company. Founded circa 1900, this railroad, under the parentage of the Saint Louis & San Francisco Railway, also known as the FRISCO, will service San Antonio and the surrounding area, acting as an interchange between the FRISCO and the Union Pacific Railroads.

The CEO has begun to generate stock in the public interest as the railroad prepares to start laying track in order to begin serving the good people of San Antonio and Texas. Already, the railroad has secured several good quality steam locomotives of the 4-6-0, 0-8-0, 2-8-0, 4-8-2 varieties to handle the loads.



Welcome aboard as you'll see the railroad grow into a prosperous enterprise.

One of my hobby's which I have been absent from for close to 20 years is model railroading. I'm going to start up in the hobby again. I need to balance myself with my truck build and since I'm reaching the end of the line with buying parts and the work, I need to start doing other things. I need to find balance in my life. Right now, I'm all truck and that isn't good. So this is my build thread for the railroad.

Progress will be slow, but I'll start building the benchwork soon. I need to get my tools together, and since I'm going to hand lay the track, I need to get all the tools for that.

As a former freight railroad conductor, I want to gain back what the real railroad's stole from me: the love of the trains. So please sit back and enjoy.

Well you have your fireman right here. I love to fire old steamers. It's a lot of fun! Gotta keep the coal down on the ridge of the grate to create the right updraft and I'll keep your hog's pressure right up there at 130! Let's get-r-done!

Your best bet is eBay for that stuff and set a good reserve. It will sell like hotcakes. I dunno though. I would hold onto that stuff for just a little while longer though. They are collectors items right now and will be worth more down the road. Conrail has a huge following and it is sorely missed by many railfans, who to this day curse the Chicken S**t Xpress!

Another suggestion is contact folks who buy train collections. I have lots of sources for him if he is interested. Please PM me what he wants for them. I may be interested.
