Juergen , fellers..

The "Excelsior" name is whot I have come to , to be the name for anything in any scale..it is just the overarching name for my imagined railway empires..

Lumber , mining, timber, Pig feeding..high speed interurban transit..?..:sad:

It stems from an actual miners ditch of that name..which became a agricultural ditch in later times after hydraulic mining was outlawed..for "slickens" downstream silt from  the operations of water sluicing for gold.

The Kerry is indeed a nice prototype..the lokey is { as Bagnalls are !} nifty...I will make a steam outline engine someday..Bagnall esque or Porterish..?..

I  use totally imaginary things for my railway modeling..I talk as if it is taking the best and leaving the ugly / inefficient / un loved , un modeled..

There are problems in modeling one line at one time ...in that you can only model whot was ..how limiting is that..?..So the cubit gauge marches on..folly..and frivolity...it sure makes me happy ...

To the naysayers..dis agree ers for the sake of dis agree ing..do whot you want..smile .be happy..build a model..that is where the flange meets the rail...

Charley

Charley-

Seems like the slusher motor got tangled up in, and absorbed by the belly button lint.

Neat collection of "Junque" Charley---

Most of it would be worth a shot of both sides, for modeling purposes.

fellers..., Herb..

Nothing of note happened..One wag suggested a railway line from under the floor { storage } out to the world of uses..I think it is a grand idea...15' ..might be extended to 17' to have a loading area...wood railed..I have some wheelies.."Orchard car " once common in Silicon valley...now it is 'lectric roads...:old dude:

As this develops , fotos as I cannot hep it..:dope:




Nice truck ..seen at Chloride Arizona...rather a heavier load capy...




I thought this was an Arrastra..but it seems a horse whim..foto taken from rolling truck..so not so clear..it sits right in front of the offices..




Drawings by the Frog...Brian Clarke..







Inspirational stuff....as intended..

Charley-very far out stuff. Just the kind of junque I love. And the old airplane, I modeled something similar in 1:48 years ago...maybe I will consider the same in 1:35/1:32 if I can find the room. Thanks for the photos..
