the O scale is the WEST SIDE LUMBER COMPANY snow plow originally built by the SWANE LUMBER COMPANY, says the kits text page.

Its picture matches your wslc plow #2 build.  The kit was made by DURANGO PRESS and is their kit # DP-44.

I am a member of the wslc yahoo group. I have also built the Tom Yorke WSLC "reynolds camp cookhouse" kit 4 times. Just for yuks i still have one under construction thats 76 scale foot long instead of the stock 38. plus rather than sitting on the ground i have it elevated up the side of a hill 18 foot in the air.

I have always wanted to get some of russ simpson kits, just never seem to get around to it when they come up. I liked his wslc "block car" with 5 doors.

Ah Yes The Durango kit, I have 2 of those myself and I have yet to build either of them, well I did put the trucks together on one of them but thats as far as I got

I used the plans from that kit to build the #2 plow. and Russ Simpsons for the Powder House plow. 

I am a member of the WSLC Yahoo group too, I have yet to post any pictures on that site but I will do so when I finish the #5 coffin tank car I received from Mike Gray.

I have started the 5 door block car but haven't had the chance to finished it yet,  I will get around to it soon and post some pictures when it's done.

Thanks for the comments, I sure do appreciate it.

Do you have pictures of your models on free rails, I would like to see them if you do, if so where would I find them ?

 

John

The one that trips my trigger is that super neat rail truck.

This RGS plow sat on the shelf for over three years, it is now near finished and will be sent over to the UK, I had to take pictures now because I wont have a camera after tomorrow morning. The boss needs it for her vacation.

John-that is beautiful work. Having seen this model unpainted and without window frames or underbody plow blade, I can only imagine how much work this has been.  Since you have this "thing" for plows, how about a model of the NCNG rotary plow which looked like a flat car with an outhouse on top and a large fan on one end. Of course, you may be tired of snow pushers at the moment.
