    I've been working on a model of the CN tug that sailed Okanagan Lake here where I live.

    It's a Linghburg model that I 'waterlined', using a tablesaw with a fine plywood blade. I finished the cut with a belt sander. It will be going to our club layout to replace a temporary model.

    I have another tug that I'm scratchbuilding for my own layout. It will be a copy of the SS Naramata, a CPR tug that also sailed lake Okanagan. That tug is now in a museum in Penticton along with CNR tug #6.

    That's a terrific scene Glen! I agree that the tug looks at home there on your layout but the club will be lucky to have it.

    The tug looks good, Glen, as does the entire scene. Who makes that crane?

    The crane is an IHC model. It's been around so long it's probably been reproduced by too many companies to count.

    No the Walthers crane it a little different. I remember getting this crane back in the seventies but then it was made by Tyco.

    I drew up a set of Plan's for Scratch building the CPR's Tugboat NARAMATER and donated them to the restoration society in Penticton in 02 I would be interested to know if anyone has used them to build
