Bruces Railroad Pictures


My web site shows real or model railroad pictures. Usually around central Wisconsin, USA. Some of the 4-year-old links below aren't going to work. If you see a topic of interest and can't get to it, let me know and maybe I'll find the old file and re-load it.

Pick a page from the list below. The newest are on the top of the list.

You can send me email by using this e address :
bruce . . . oldn . . 2 n 7 at gm . . . ail dot com and push it all together to make an email address, I give it this way to confuse email harvesters.
I dont' read my email very often, maybe twice a month.
Don't use any of my old Charter email addresses, there's problems with those.

Here's my favorite Links of the year.
I put this updated this link December 21, 2019

I just got on facebook and I don't know much about it but I read messages and see Joe's pictures and I am learning.

I also belong to the wisrail and SooLineHistory groups for historical topics, but I haven't read them very often, either.

It's not a cornfield meet but it was just as bad, on the model railroad

The used model locomotives from the Waupaca train show in June 2021

This 'old dog' had to learn some new tricks. My web pages has been few and far between, and then to top that off, I learned Firefox discontinued (that's even worse than just quit supporting) their convenient file transfer protocol (FTP) that moves my pages onto the Trainweb site. So I had to read up on my problem and do a web search for a suitable replacement, which was FileZilla. And I had to find my old log-in data from 2010, a real memory test.
Web pages are 'old technology', before facebook and texting and such; and I am old, so that matches.

Waupaca train show 2021 and the historic depot

Here's a new (private now, but it was public at the start) facebook group this year, useful if you like to model the paper industry:
facebook group Consolidated Papermaking Past Present and Future
They include some 'aerial' views 'from inside the fence' and views inside the buildings.
Also notice the thundersorm and fire video in May 2021 at the hardwood digester.

I watch current train events in my area on the Waupaca Depot You Tube page.

Here are some of my older topics that have disappeared from defunct web hosts.

Here are 5 pages about the 3M shingle granule plant in Wausau, Wisconsin. Most of the pictures are old, some are 9 years old. One is 50 years old.
And my memories of it goes back 50 years to when I first studied it.

I moved my old lost Necedah webpage to a current folder:
Necedah Loop 2010 aerial views

Dozens of low importance pages from 2011 and 2012 were deleted from this index and from trainweb to make memory space.
If you see a topic that doesn't link anymore, please let me know. I can reload some pages if they are of interest to someone.

I saw that my Whiting Paper Mill web pages are not all linked or easily found. So I put them all in a row here so they would be easier to find. The mill and its railroad tracks were ripped out from 2011 to 2015. These are show from the newer and going back to the older.
One Last Look at the Whiting Mill in 2015, the former Consolidated / New Page paper mill in Whiting, Wisconsin, is now just a level field.
