Comments: I am building a freelance short line railroad set in the 1930s in northern Wisconsin in HO scale. I found this site while researching images and information about railroading in that location and era, and it offers a lot of helpful information that I expect to use to add some realism to my own freelance line. I expect that the GB&W would be a likely source of interchange traffic for my freelance line. Thank you for collecting this information and making it available!
Admin reply: You're welcome! I didn't create it alone — I've had lots of contributors who have made the web site what it is today.
Comments: Stumbled on this site looking for GBW cabooses in the 1960's painted other than yellow. This site was greatly appreciated. My family (mother's side) goes back many generations on the Green Bay and I am modeling it in HO. Not a great deal of equipment available, nor decals, either.
Admin reply: Thanks for visiting! We'd love to see some of your models.
Comments: What a nice website, Mark! It is clean, well-organized and has a ton of great, varied content. Nice way to honor the GB&W! I could only dream that others could be as creative and diligent in creating websites for other 'fallen flag' railroads. Thanks for sharing this with all of us!
Comments: I am the grandson of Robert (Bob) Anunson who was a yard master (not sure fit he term is correct) and dispatcher for the Green Bay and Western back in the 50's, 60's and early 70's. I am interested in documentation that has his name on it and possibly HO model engines and cars. I rode in a engine briefly with him in about 1965 in the yards in Green Bay. I love learning more about the railroad and my Grandpa!! :)
Comments: Hi, I have 3 Walthers GBW ALLDOOR boxcars I will be listing on ebay today, June 27th, for a 10 day auction. I will be listing other MNS and GBW stuff too. I am getting out of GBW and boat trains... thanks and sorry for this type of post- ;)
Comments: Recently purchased bachmann 2-6-0 based on Gbw prototype. Great little runner and track plan of Iola branch would suit my preferences well. Unfortunately in appears nobody currently in business produces GbwDecals. Is this correct.

Comments: Just for the record, Colonel Caboose's dodo was Griselda, not Zelda. (Trust me--I do go back that far! I even still have the photocard he gave out to kids on his show and elsewhere!)
Admin reply: You are correct - thanks for correcting that. I've updated the Farewell, Colonel Caboose page. Apparently my recollection of Colonel Caboose is slipping as the years go by.

Comments: Greetings: Great website! I have spent several hours on the site, and thanks for the great memories of the line. Growing up @ Meehan Station allowed me to daily see or photo the great Alcos on that jointed line. My brother and I could hear GBW trains coming by the horn as it Xed @ County Road F - and would wait for the house to rattle, rumble and creak as the multiple units made their way at night, back toward Green Bay. My favorite: 312 the Homer E. McGee. A great unit. Thank you.
