a second phase of research into Tin Cup and its rich history, we came upon an idea
to incorporate "extracts" from a fictional diary written by Minnie Coupeau, the
fictional daughter of the Tincup & Western's owner, Albert James Coupeau, over
several years. To see what a young girl growing up in turn of the century Colorado
might have written about her environment, click on the DIARY button.
five trips to Tin Cup and its surrounding area in the past four years and
have taken a number of photographs from which to base our efforts. We started
construction on the layout over the winter of 2000/2001, and have scratch-built a number
of N-scale buildings and structures to place on the layout. We have also
included photographs of some of our efforts, along with photographs of the mines
and mills where copyrights permit.
We hope you will relax for a few minutes and join us for a brief tour of our little railroad, central Colorado, and a bit of railroad and mining history that many of us find so fascinating. Any comments you may have concerning our efforts would be greatly appreciated. Please E-mail Paul Pierce of Waldorf, Maryland.
