    Here's my scratchbuilt Waddling Duck, the only part I didn't make was the cab from one Model A Ford . The power unit was the chassis from an old Bachmann 44 tonner.

    Took me three weeks from start to finish.

    My Kind of Goose

    I really like this Goose you made. Or Duck, rather? :D I've had a fair bit of experience with Model A's and Model T's too, and I really like what you've done with this one. I can hear it chuffin' away.

    Well done!

    Quack!

    That's a cracker (or should I say, "quacker") of a model! Nice work. Yet again, more stuff for that eternal "to-do" list. :)

    Let's see, weve had the Badger Creek, and the Red Fox, so....
    Wolf run, or Fox River, or, recalling the great badger v weasel fight, Weasel flats, and we're not getting any younger, so..Grey Fox, or maybe Beaver Run? Considering your location, how about Great Island, or Mid Island. Of course these are all Lumber Companies.
    You could drop the LC, and go with something like Wolf Run & Timber Flats RY, or even Badger Creek & Fox Valley RY.

    Pete, you have a great imagination with a conglomerate of idea’s for naming the as yet unnamed railroad.

    Wolf Run & Timber Flats, now thats quite good. Anymore anyone.

    New RR Name

    Not being completely familiar with the wildlife in England, I resorted to Ask Jeeves to find out what sort of critters might be found on Shamus' latest layout.

    As to relating to the layout's terrain, the hills always seem to dominate the multi-level layouts of late, so how about a name relating to that feature?

    How about:

    Wildcat Ridge
    Ferret Mountain
    Red Squirrel Ridge
    Wild Goat Hill

    Shamus,

    Your "Waddling Duck" is a beauty.

    I would love to build something like this but I'm afraid it would be a "Terrible Turkey."

    Enough name calling! :D :D :D

    Great ideas, friends, I want to copy them all to the logging forum, where Shamus has a thread going requesting names:

    http://www.the-gauge.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=7110

    That way they will be there in one place, so future generations can also pick a name from the list. Please add more there!

    TC- feel free to go on all day, you have a great immagination and a real dreamer! ;)
