Trainorama - March 2014 - Photos of Door Prize Winners

Dear Sand Hill & Western members,
The first issue of Model Railroader I purchased was the November 1969 issue (I was 12 years old) which featured a pictorial essay on the Sand Hill & Western. I was impressed by the paint scheme of the SH&W’s locomotives. Fast forward to about ten years ago when I was at a train show (Trainorama?) and found a used shell of a Sand Hill & Western SD9 (old Athearn wide body) #4409 for sale with a price of one dollar. Thanks to eBay I was able to get a new chassis/motor, handrails, windows and even a horn to complete the restoration. Allow me to present Sand Hill and Western locomotive 4409 alive and well.
Have Fun,  Frank Traum
