He also played a vital roll in the Wilderness Line G scale engine and coach offered by Carolwood. The day after the Roger Broggie rededication in October of 2003, Michael gave a fantastic presentation outlying the history of the FWRR in Pioneer Hall. Michael was also kind enough to provide most of the material to get this web site started. Without Michaels help, this site would not be here!
