    Nice climax,

    I was wondering if they ever made any standard gauge class A Climaxes (Climaxi?).

    I was admiring this: http://www.mrollins.com/climaxpix.html in HOn3 and was wondering if something like that would be appropriate in standard gauge.

    cheers,
    Neil

    Hi Neil,
    Yes, I liked mark's climax also, thanks for the link.
    As far as standard gauge goes, they used Shays, so why not a climax. I used the MDC HO climax on my old standard gauge logging layouts.

    Another beauty Paul, even to the coil of rope hanging on the side. A charmer if there ever was one.
