With the closing of Augusta Station there is less activity on the site. However, new photo albums will be created and
new photos added to existing albums. So keep an eye out for those changes. There are photos of the Station and its' displays,
but you'll also find albums things of interest to anyone who likes trains. And of course, if new pages are added
or changes to existing ones on this website you'll find a notice of that here as well.
Check the Station Master's Journal. Occasionally there will be new entries. It is already loaded with modeling tips and topics
of interest to model railroaders and railfans.It also chronicaled the progress on construction of the N scale MK&P layout
and other changes or events at the Station.
