Greetings from the Emmett, Idaho headquarters of the I.N.G.N. For those of you who enjoyed our premier issue of some time ago (nearly two years!), we will attempt to keep up the same quality of reporting and commentary on things that are important to your life here at the beginning of this Twentieth Century. Our purpose is to inform in a way no one else in the territory is doing, in the classic style of the ninteenth century you have come to expect from us, without ever taking ourselves, or our readers, too seriously.
This is a labor of love, none expect to profit from this endevor, so please, your comments and compliments are sought and greatly apreciated, please keep them gentle and meaningful. We want more than anything to keep our railroads running, so that is our main priority (well that along with one-hundred fifty thousand other things, but I digress...) so this newspaper may not always be updated in a timely fashon, but we are sure you have other things to do for entertainment, and if you don't may we suggest a hobby? We really could use some career track maintainers and manual weed removal experts!
Our motto is: "The news on time, within a century or so." That should explain the timely dates on this page.

June 5, 2001. Didi the wrinkly guard dog is posing as roadkill and what was the corral is looking more like a railroad yard - lots of track and old scrap iron all over. We have picked up some more railroad scrap and wheels for the envisioned caboose. Today Rollie is getting yet another tie crane to use as the beginning for locomotive #103!
The winter was really rough on the enginehouse roof, we didn't have an extension ladder to install the eve trim, so couldn't install the drip edge or shingles yet!
We have been moving out our parents mobile home (you can just make out the old one in the background) and moving another larger one in, so have not worked on the railroad for a couple months (besides imagineering cabooses!)
A great day to run a train!
