Looks like he has a nice little ore bin kit and the Silver City caboose is a nice piece.......This of course if you are into Resin Kits!!

That Gallows turntable looks WAY Out of proportion.........those beams look like their 3feet x 3 feet minimum  maybe larger..........Could be the photo but if thats the case I would have taken a better picture.

Ive never seen a Gallows turntable for light engines built Near that heavy.......Has Anybody else??

The most accurate scale gallows turntable I have ever seen was by Model Masterpieces a D&RGW scale 65' gallows. Designed by Don Meeker. It was done in On3 and a fantastic kit.

Yes some nice stuff there Dwyane...I have to agree with Mike and Todd on the gallows TT...I think the timbers are too beefy for the size of it.

Darryl H your scanned book about early logging and sawmilling practices here has caught my interest, if you see an envelope from Montana in the near future it's probably from me!

I'lll keep an eye out for an envelope from ytter-man in Montana.

It will take me a while to learn who's nickname belongs to whom.

All part of the grand mysteries in life.

Incidentally, I always ship my CDs and DVDs as soon as I get a mailing address.  I never wait for payment.  This has served me well for 40 years of dealing with model railroaders.
