    Here's a kit/scratchbuilt body I made for an old 0-6-0 saddle tank I had laying around, thought I would make good use of it.

    Depot now in full swing, new fire truck being delivered.

    Shamus,
    Neat little switcher!. Also good to see the "masochism depot" in a complete scene.

    Fire Truck

    Hi Shamus, Now that's just "slick as a whistle":D :) I would have never in a million years come up with the idea of a fire truck to operate on the rails....I assume that its a hi-railer because of the flanged wheels. Almost afraid to ask:eek: :D ...is it powered???:) Like the saddle tanker too!!!:)

    That's one cute li'l "docksider switcher", how many miles to the one barrel of fuel oil? :) .

    The firetruck and tender:- Definately a "must have" for a logging RR. There seems to be no end to your imaginative ideas! That's what puts you layout in the "high-end" of modelling. I'ts great!

    Also, I'm admiring the fine railings around the depot's platform. very nicely done!

    Another example of the busy Badger Creek company. There is no doubt there is always something different happening. Just look around:D

    Shamus I have admired your work from the first time I found your web site. I would like to know where you got the wheels for the truck.
    Thanks Mike.

    Hi Mike, and welcome to the gauge, the wheels for the HO truck are in fact N-scale wheels from an old flat car I had.
    Vic, the firetruck is a dummy, not a working model but the saddle tank is a working model, started out life as a Bachmann 0-6-0.

    Thanks everone for the kind welcome.
    Shamus I like the saddle tank it looks good, I would like to see more about it on your website sometime. I was on your site yesterday and saw the picture of the log lift and I would like to know where you got the blocks you use in the rigging.

    Mike.
