    Class "A" Climax heads out of the logging area heading for the Red Fox sawmill and lumber yards.
    Bridge only just been finished, yet to put the guard rails and planking down the centre.

    Hi Shamus, Another great picture on your busy RR. Does that loader straddle the track or run on the track?

    Cheers, Jim

    Outstanding Shamus my friend. As Jim says, you have a very busy logging company going there. The growing housing starts require more and more lumber so the Red Fox Lumber Company will be earning good revenue.

    Many thanks good people,

    JimT, My McGiffert log loader does both, sits outside the tracks to load logs,and also runs on the rails when it moves to the next location.

    Cheers

    Shamus, whenever I have nieces and nephews over to visit (and I have lots of them!) one of the first things I do after showing them my little layout, is to head over to your website to show them how it's really done.
    I like to watch their jaded 12-year old jaws drop!

    cheers
    :D Val

    Shamus. Your Climax heading home sure makes a beautiful desk top screen picture. Hope you don't mind.
