In Search of Steam Donkeys by Merv Johnson.

Just got lucky and found one for £30 GBP (about $45 US and in immaculate condition considering it is 2nd hand.)

A quick run thro' and by heck - it's going to be an interesting and enjoyable read (and I am just about to butcher/bash a Bachmann G Scale skidder donkey engine)- so equally valuable for info on this project..Well pleased..

:old dude: & :glad:

Yes, please do show us the build. I'm a fan of the steam donkey too and hope to finish a live steam one some day. I have it running on air now. Need to finish the boiler.

Thanks for that Gil. Just the job, as I am about to do a roof for my "bash" of the Bachmann G scale Donkey.
