Tileguy,

A good source of HO logging specific figures is the Timberjacks line.  Don't know who the manufacturer is but, a search for Timberjacks in the HO trains category on eBay usually turns up several kits.

I found a great digital book online, "Design of Mine Structures", from 1912:

https://archive.org/details/designminestruc02ketcgoog

A really great reference resource, it has plans and information about various headframes, ore cars, skips, hoist houses, ore bins, coal tipples, etc.

I wish I'd seen this sooner, it would have been very helpful with the headframe I'm currently working on!

Thanks Ray; interesting book & diagrams - some of the maths looks a bit beyond my level !
The 'Safety Hook' is an exact copy of a patented English type, the Ormerod. Perhaps they didn't patent it in the US (unlikely ?).
I had wondered, but was too polite to say so, why you are modelling a '4 Post' headframe. I know they do exist but always struck me as a strange design considering the uni-directional winding/braking forces involved.
