    To go along with the pumpers, I made this rig based on one at Maidstone in Saskatchewan. A 3000hp unit made in N scale

    This is the area the drill will be located once I have done some more scenery.

    Do you ever just like...EAT the cereal without giving thought to the eternal resting place of the box it came in?:p Love the lattice work on that rig, great job.

    Robin,
    I am always amazed at how great your cerealboard and cardboard structures look. Especially in N scale! What you do with simple tools and paper-products looks better than what most of us could produce with a complete workshop and a truckload of supplies.

    Keep up the great work, I know you inspire me, and I'm sure I'm not alone!

    Thanks for all your kind words and support everyone. These are real fun projects and the best part is the low cost.

    Matthyro pumps these amazing projects out so fast, I'm convinced he has a spare bedroom filled to the ceilign with the uneaten cereal he dumped out to get the box.
