I think i'm on the road to recovery but i'll have to work some long days to get my workplace back in order... who knows how many of my spare tires they've used! And the trucks have probably all been run w/o greasing. One of the bosses was telling me about how they changed about 4 U-joints a month before i started crawlin under with a grease gun... i've only seen em replace 2 since i've been there!
I'm hoping my order of stuff from ye olden England land will get here soon. The Porter needs a winch, like my pickup truck...

It's more like planning-in-progress, i know i want my micro to use 4 wheel stuff (12" diameter curves!) and i'd like it to be more fun than a serious attempt to model any one area. I'll have these and some logging disconnects tooling about behind my porter and i have a railtruck or critter in the making, i'm gathering parts as we speak
Disconnects tooling.,? Can you teach me how to disconnect it the right way .,I do not know the right I am not sure to the things that I do,.
Howdy and welcome to freerails. Are you wondering about disconnected logging trucks or tooling or both in general? The disconnects are just one truck (bogie) under each end of a long log so it can be transported on the railroad. Tooling is just an old term for "rolling along"...no tools involved. So, the logs are on trucks being pulled along by a Porter. I trust you are familiar with Porters? We can answer almost any questions...sometimes we get it right. Woodie

Are there any more pictures around of the "critter" at the front of those skips in Kimball?
It is an interesting mix of parts I think, very similar to those made in Australia by Malcolm Moore Ltd or Days Ltd. The tractor radiator and fuel tank looks like it from a Fordson Major, but the motor appears to be a flat head Ford V8.
