   Cane Car 

See the cane car Bob Keller Tigard, OR
      "My interest in the Hawaiian plantation railroads began when I obtained the derelict hulk of Hawaiian Railways Company #5, a 1924 Baldwin 2-4-2.
In some five years of work, with considerable help from friends, I restored the locomotive to operating condition. This led to the formation of Senic Railways Inc., which ended up being the first operator of the Cumbres & Toltec Senic Railroad. We had also brought in the Kahului Railroad #12, a Baldwin 2-6-2 (see the cover of the Sept/Oct 2000 Narrow Gauge and Shortline Gazette), and the Oahu Railwaw #19, a General Electric 44 ton type diesel.
The #19 is still on the C&TS RR, and has proven to be very useful there. I took a lot of abuse from the steam purists when I brought it onto the property around 1973"

      "As for my background in model building, it is basically that I have been doing it in one scale or another since I was about 12 (over 50 years ago). Besides a lot of work in HO scale, I've built a 1:8 live steam locomotive, and did some 1:1 scale freight car conversions - for passenger service - on the C&TS RR. My training is as a mechanical engineer, which came from the misguided notion that I could become a designer of steam locomotives."
