Hi Tyler,Doc Tom,
I've seen this sort of contraption before, can't recall where though. That would make for a very neat project and knowing both you and Bill's handywork it'll look (and maybe even work) fantastic. Are you planning to make it operable somehow?
On another note, so far things are pretty smooth here in Afghan. Not a lot of action to be seen here. Still no room for train progress and it looks like it's not going to happen. The only related thing I will be getting is some graph paper, a compass and a french curve so I can start doodling up some scale plans for the WRRy.
Thanks for the support guys!
I am glad you are getting all these posts. It is a nice way to keep up.
Bill and I are looking forward to this project. I just purchased some scale rulers and will be scouring the internet for some O scale rail to put on the logging flat's decks. Bill has already figured out a way to make it roll on the rails.....now we need an operating G scale boiler, steam piping and machinery to make it hoist. Just kidding about the steam, some modelers use hand cranks to make there models do some of the tricks the real ones did.
I am glad things are quiet for you in Afghanistan. Please be careful and stay warm....I suspect it is mighty cold there now.
