ach of the “Railroad Prototype Modelers” meets has its own per- sonality, and it has been fun to


see the Northeastern Fallen Flags (NEFF) meet grow. Now in its fourth year, it has established itself. Held on the first Saturday of October in central New Jersey, its current venue is in Bridgewater, just off I-78, in a nicely- appointed 4-H building. This tends to be a relaxed event, and its layout is ide- al for meeting the modelers who brought cars, locomotives and struc- tures to the display room. It has a solid core of repeat attendees, many of whom are regulars at RPM’s in the East, so the day is like a family reunion. We just all pick up where we left off the last time. What could be better?


While the New York, Susquehanna & West- ern is still with us, the two dozen B40-8’s that they received new in 1988-1989 are now gone, replaced by a collection of used locomotives. Number 4004 is an Atlas HO scale model with added detailing and weathering done by Ed Lewis. These units left the property around 2004, with this one and three others going to the Providence & Worcester and the rest to CSX.


While it carries the word “northeast-


ern” in its title, that is mainly because of its general location. Models of equip- ment from anywhere are welcome, and the models do not have to be of “fallen flags.” That said, most of what was on display and most of the presentations were “home roads.” Fine. The seminars covered both modeling


and prototype topics, from using his- toric aerial photos to recasting an exist- ing home layout to a Lackawanna theme, to paint schemes of the Lehigh


Most of us have seen this model in print, in photos, and on the cover of the Micro-Mark cat- alog, and it was a pleasure to see it in person. It is Alan Mende’s HO scale model of Central Railroad of New Jersey’s class A-10, 0-4-0T shop switcher. The prototype was built by Bald- win in 1907 and it lasted into the 1940’s. When it comes to scratchbuilding in brass, Alan is one of today’s master craftsmen. It has some commercial parts—but only some.
