OJ D51760製作の軌跡

2013年発行 B5版 全64頁

<作者の言葉> ・・・・広島県安芸川尻が親父の郷里で、呉線ファンである私としてC59161に次いでD51760はぜひ作りたい「カマ」でした。ところが昭和38(1963)年から昭和48(1967)年頃の呉線の写真を出してみますと、D51の写真が無いのです。
 C62、C59なら沢山あるのですが、その当時は呉線でD51の牽く貨物列車など見向きもしませんでした。反省!!
 同じ関西OJクラブの関敏夫、水野誠の両氏に恐る恐る小さな声で聞きましたところ、「あるで〜」のお返事。そして写真をいただきました。その後、冗談ですけれど、「よう呉線でD51なんか撮っていたなあ〜」なんて悪態をついています。
 このたび3年4ヶ月をかけて「D51760」が完成しました。

 今回「模型大学」NEWS編集者の秋元宏氏のご好意により、同NEWSに全30回にわたり連載の製作記を一冊にまとめていただきました。皆さんのご参考になれば幸いです。

150_Years_of.jpg

copyright 1999, Hal Carstens, 152 pages, hardcover

RMC誌の編集長(表紙の男性)が、NMRAの他、業界のエピソードを満載して、スケール・モデル製品の成り立ちを語る。Oゲージの状況を含み、マックス・グレイ夫妻など、我々が見たことも聞いたこともない話ばかり。英語が不得手でも写真が多いので楽しめる。

Here's the first comprehensive history of model railroading: over 400 photos and illustrations of early manufacturers, their products, the pioneer modelers; the beginnings of NMRA, TCA and TTOS as well as the early trade organizations: AMRRM, HIAA, and MRIA.

He received the Wagner College Alumni Achievement Award and served eleven years on the Wagner College Board of Trustees. He was NMRA Man of the Year in 1990 and is listed in Who's Who in America.

Introduction
This book started out to be a simple, selected compilation of my Dispatcher's Report column from the pages of RAILROAD MODEL CRAFTSMAN. As the material was gathered it developed into a history of the model railroad hobby from its earliest years until the late 1970s. Photographs came from my personal files as well as from the RAILROAD MODEL CRAFTSMAN library and a number of other sources. It would be impossible to include everybody who had a part in creating the early days of the hobby. Photographs of some important early pioneers were not available to me as the book grew in scope. Perhaps more photos will turn up after this book is printed. The same is true of many of the early modelers who played an important role in promoting scale model railroading, collecting scale and toy trains, creating standards so locos and cars were interchangeable and those who worked, sometimes behind the scenes, to organize the trade and consumer associations which helped our model railroad hobbies grow and stabilize. The hobby and industry could not have grown without their efforts.
The manufactures, wholesalers, dealers and consultants listed in this book have given freely of their time and effort to help the hobby grow. So have the pioneers who formed NMRA, TCA, TTOS and other smaller organizations to create platforms where modelers and collectors could meet and share ideas, create standards for operating and collecting, and make new friends.
Harold H. Carstens
