Mio nonno, Angelo A. Battistella era un ingegnere elettrico, che ha lavorato per la Southern Pacific Railroad in Roseville, CA. Mio padre Alex M. Battistella era una locomotiva ingegnere per il Sud Pacifico. HO apprezzato molto il vostro rail completamente layout. La ringrazio. Tony Battistella

I just reread the story in Model Railroader March, 1986. I was wondering how you had extended the railroad. Experiencing the train ride was very enjoyable.

Your Tall Pine Railroad model layout is incredible - the best I have seen in many, many years. I was a fan of model railroads as a body and your attention to detail reminds me of the late Jack Work, a modeler who wrote many articles for Model Railroader magazine. Thanks for sharing your dream.

I have seen every article that has appeared in Model Railroader regarding your layout. It is a true work of art, and quite inspirational as well. Thank you for the website, and the opportunity to view the beauty in the clsoe-up photos. If I ever had the chance to come to Italy, I would love to see it in person, and likewise, if you were ever in Chicago, and I have anything done to my layout worth looking at, you would be more than welcome to see it, and join an operating session.

Hi - I am rebuilding my layout to a shelf and two large areas at the North and South ends for towns and industrial areas. I hope to have it in full operation in three months. Right now I am building turnouts for the yard. The yard has an arrival & departure track the is 15 feet long. With three long yard tracks for building trains. You were my inspiration, Thanks, I know it will be fun to operate.

Preg.mo Sig. BATTISTELLA, sono il responsabile del Museo di Campo Marzio e mi rivolgo a Lei per una proposta. Il Museo sarebbe veramente onorato ad avere una Sua, anche piccola, opera, a testimonianza della Sua Arte. Sto pensando ad un piccolo diorama, solo statico, da inserire nella nostra collezione permanente. Sarebbe un omaggio non solo alla Storia ferroviaria americana ma anche il contributo ad uno dei Musei più particolari esistenti in Italia da parte di un Concittadino di straordinaria abilità. Saremmo disposti a sopperire alle spese vive, pur essendo la nostra attività, come noto, interamente affidata al volontariato. Sarebbe disposto ad aderire alla proposta, spero non indecente.... ? In attesa di un riscontro Le rinnovo i miei complimenti,anche a nome di tutto il Gruppo SAT-DLF Trieste. Cordialità Roberto Carollo
