Si ,fellers..

There is a fellers there who sort of collects this stuff...it is  a musuem of sorts..some for sale..some for probably future in some mine project..gold being priced as it is..gold areas  are BOOMING....:old dude:

The other side of the board was blank methinks...Goldfield is quite the "rural" area...things just sit there alot...for along time..with little or no rust forming..very dry..the operative term...

A chassii made from a brit 9 mil ? side frame...



"O" scale wheelies onto K n S axles..holed on drill press...very ncice for 1/2 n18"..scale ...spot on...in all regards...very nice..and a  bogie made form a std gauge "O" scale truck...
