Thanks Woodie,

I have been trying to find plans on that plow for some time now, I have always wanted to build it, if you can help me locate drawings I will start that project right away.

I don't think I will ever get tied of snow plows,LOL, I have built 14 different snow plows to date.

I am almost finished with another NCNG Bucker snow plow, now that the parts came in I can finish the trucks and say it's a done deal.

 

John

Fellow Freerailers, I have been negligent in reporting that Shayboiler, AKA John Foster, passed away several months ago. John had been battling diabetes and other ailments and he wasn't able to recover. I have lost track of his wife & son so I can't provide any updates. John was a custom builder in 1:20.3 scale and built On30 pieces for himself. I don't know of the disposition of his works, I own one piece and remember John every time I look at it. He has been missed by the local (Dallas area) crew and the Texas Outlaws On30 group. John was a great fellow and a good friend, I still miss him every day.

Woodie



John's water car (On30) which looks great in 1:35 and is used by both the Mogollon Railway and the Silver City, Pinos Altos, & Mogollon Railroad. Of course it is scratchbuilt. Next to it is my poor replica of the SCPA&M's caboose. Outside the MRy's engine house on a nice, sunny day.

Unfortunately, we all have our time.  Thanks for the update Woodie.  I didn't know John Foster, but judging by his works, John was a damn good modeler.
