    HI...I HAVE BEEN READING THAT THERE ARE SOME ITEMS IN N SCALE THAT ARE HARD TO FIND OR ARE NOT AVAILABLE SO I DECIDED TO MAKE SOME. I HAVE SOME N SCALE 24 FT. LOGGING CARS FOR THE LOGGING INDUSTRY. I HAVE ALSO JUST FINISHED AN N SCALE STEAM DONKEY. IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE SOME PICS OF THESE ITEMS THEY CAN BE SEEN AT... www.drmlogging.com

    IF YOU KNOW OF OTHER ITEMS THAT A PERSON WOULD LIKE BUT IS HARD TO FIND PLEASE SEND ME A REPLY.

    EVEN THOUGH I HAVE AN HO SCALE LAYOUT...ALMOST FINISHED...I FIND ALL SCALES ENJOYABLE.

    thanx....dongo

    Hi,

    the donkey is very nice.
    But for many loading systems, you will need steamdonkeys with 2 winches...
    Can you make this too ?

    HI GERD....AT FIRST THE DONKEY WAS TO BE A DOUBLE SPOOL BUT FIGURED IT COULDN'T BE CAST AND STILL KEEP THE DETAIL. THEN I DAWNED ON ME TO WRAP THE SPOOL SEPARATELY AND THEN INSTALL IT. SO...I WILL NOW GO TO THE DRAWING BOARD AND REDESIGN THE SPOOL FRAME TO ADD BOTH WRAPPED SPOOLS SEPARATELY. GOOD IDEA...GLAD YOU BROUGHT THIS UP. WILL GET BACK TO YOU LATER.
    thanx.....Don www.drmlogging.com
