Woodie,

 

I think we better start watching you closer. First you wanted my critter, now you want Dave’s. Did you get hit in the head by some of Ike’s flying debris?  :Crazy:

 

Bob :)

Herbski-Boudreaux is a Cajun (Louisiana/French/Creole) name, pronounced Boo-dro by the locals. Tain't no fancy vino nor some region near South France. Now, those inquiring minds got the "rest of the story"...

Woodrow-same kinda thing as Boudreaux...

PS-you will be getting a mysterious box next week. More to follow.

And-yep, I would love to receive Trebor's and Dave's nice little locos. Remember that my birthday is at the end of next month. Any cast off locomotives are put to work upon reciept.

I was studying the pictures of the wheels on the drive unit, original drawing. I see that the thing is supposed to be chain drive.

I have something that looks exactly like that from grandt line in O scale, pretty sure it was for the RGS Goose work truck they make. See if i can find it on their site.

Nope was for the west side lumber push car, pictures sent direct from their site plus another bunch of stuff on chain drive from the grandt site

Thanks Don, and thanks for the help Mike.

I have one of the chain drives from GL...the set for making it really work.

To use those on this, I would have to tear down the drive unit, and make the shaft longer and I don't want to do that.

Also, I am not going by the original photo, but rather by Tom Yorke's interpretation of the original, which varies a little.

His drawing has covers to form a guard over what would be the chain drive, so you will have to imagine it being under the guards. ;)

How about a skull, or a little beer keg on the top end of the gearshift?

KEEP GOING!

OK-how about a 1:25 scale BUDWEISER beer tap handle. I had a friend with one of those on top of his Hurst shifter. It looked like it would be hard to shift with, but this ol' boy was used to drawing beers from a tap and he liked the feel...I guess. Maybe an "8" ball from some old poolroom. And I have also seen old glass door knobs being used as a shift knob.  However, I DARE you to make the beer tap handle. Triple dog dare...

Hope I don't upset any Coors Light drinkers, but an old fellow here in Texas wondered what was in the "beer" and sent a sample to Texas A & M labs. Two weeks later he got a letter stating-"sorry sir, but your horse has lukemia." Yuk, yuk, yuk !!!                the Outlaw troublemaker
