Somewhere in the logging railroads of Pennsylvania series is a pic of a Heisler that was converted to diesel drive.

Thanks Jose & Helmut - I had never seen nor heard of a steamer converted to infernal combustion. As they say - "a prototype for everything".

Hi Jose & all,
I think that was the diesel-powered Heisler

Here's a diesel-powered set of Climaxc bogies - second bogie is under the log load - Britton Brothers Diesel #1 at Smithton Tasmania, and yes it has been modelled

Also check out the Marshall while you are there... :bg:
