THE Pine Cone Valley RR. has gone through several changes of location and name, but not of organization; in this respect it differs from most railroads. The present name was adopted in 1939 shortly after the road had been moved from Jocelyn St. to Jefferson Pl. in Washington, D. C. In 1946 its location was changed to Kennebunk, Maine, and in 1948 to what may prove to be its ultimate destina-tion-2143 Ridge La., Santa Barbara, Calif. The road has always been built to a scale of 17/64"=1 ft., with a gauge of 5/8". In other words, the prototype-if one existed-would have a gauge of 2'-4 I/4". This gauge was fixed originally by a Bing clockwork mechanism purchased in 1925, around which the original locomotive and railroad were built. In this connection, it has always seemed to the writer that scale rather than gauge is the important thing.
