Finished six Herb Deeks coal hopper kits. These cars will be used to deliver coal to the Appetite Mine's boiler room.

Nice little fellahs...I haven't heard about Herb Deeks in years, is he still making kits?

Woodie, I bought these Herb Deeks kits and two of his battery powered mine motors many years ago. I'm reasonably sure another company bought Herb out and still offers his kits. Can't remember the name of that company.

I forgot to mention two other Herb Deeks cars on my roster. A flat car and tank car, both modified a quite a bit.   Larry G

Larry,

Some of your equipment looks similar to Ozark Miniatures:  https://www.ozarkminiatures.com/scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=475

Ozark Miniatures, that is the name I could not remember, thanks Michael. As I said, I am reasonably sure this is Herb Deeks old line of railway kits. Herb also offered kits for hard to find road vehicles. Don't know if he is still doing these or if some one has picked up that line too.. Larry G

Finally, guests going to Big Stone Lodge and miners going to work no longer need to walk along the track. Three new passenger cars are now ready for service. A baggage car, small passenger car and a two truck passenger car. The stricking paint job really stands out among all the earth tones of the needles.   Larry Gant

Nice cars Larry and they make up into a sweet train. I wonder if a couple of chains on either side of the baggage car would help keep the load in, especially when travelling around bends!

Doug, you are right, chains or netting need to be added. I have some black wedding vail material on hand, should make good netting. Now all I need is some 1:24 baggage and several seated figures to complete the train.

I was inspired by the 15" estate railways, over in your neck of the woods, for the design of my coaches. Larry G

Installed netting on one side, will do the far side after I load the car with luggage. My fat fingers have a hard time of it, trying to load luggage later.  Larry G
