Si.

With too many cranes already, I had intended to paint it black,

and with cribbing, use it as a flat car load,

destination unknown.

:)  :)


I am making a few extra flat car loads,

which can be swapped out for variety,

using bits and pieces I have laying around.

Si, Ken,

Why not model a crane factory?


All kinds of traffic:

-finished cranes to the customer

-spare parts on flatcars or in boxcars to the customer

-raw materials delivered to the factory

-and maybe even the local repair crew with a toolcar and spare parts?


On the other side,

what to do with all those tankcars?

Hi Alwin  :wave:



HOLY HOIST HOARD !  Boy Wonder  :shocked:  ... You got it in one !  :bg:


I thought I saw someone, nosing through my kitchen window the other day !!  ;)

Alwin ... I've implemented your ^^ ideas !  :old dude:


Finished cranes to the customer ... Erm, well, NEARLY finished cranes !  :slow:

Spare parts on flatcars ... Yep, we got loads of spare parts & flatcars.  :P

Raw materials delivered ... Yep, eBay raw materials, delivered by Dave the postman.  :cool:



" On the other side,

They are full of coffee, oil & MEK ... In separate tankcars of course !  :java::mex:


:moose:


Si.

Hi    Ken  :wave:



I am extremely short of flat car loads !  :P

And have been wondering what 'junkque' I could dig up from the rust-pile to use ?  ???


But if I do that with 'Lionel Derrick' ... IT HAD BETTER BE GOOD !  :old dude:

That rare 'Kaslo & Slocan Rly.' derrick, has been 1/2 way around the Globe to get here !  :shocked:





Here's another photo ^^ of the curious Canadian parts.  L:


I think it's the 'sticking-up-bit' that is bothering Wolfy & the car shop crew !  :f:
The BOOM ! bit, is like somethings they see on the :moose: Rly. every day.


Is that the proper name for the horizontal girders ? ... The Boom ?  :us:

What's the proper name for the 'sticking-up-bit' ? ... I've forgotten !  :us:


Maybe I'll get a small crane yet ! ...

... & a small flat car load AS WELL !  :bg:


:java::moose: :dt:


Si.

Apologies in advance !  :P

I just can't help getting diverted a bit sometimes, by 'Tri-ang' BATTLE SPACE ! ... & the like.  :old dude:
I can't help it if I was born in the swingin' '60s  :cool:  ... The classic 'golden-era' of the 'Operating Accessory' !  :brill:





Maybe mysterious hoist homie, Canadian    Ken, has sent me parts from a TOP SECRET Cold War test ! ?  :Salute:

:dt:

My 14' of cosmic stripwood, courtesy of my neighbour 'Rocket Man' ...

... got a sort & once over yesterday.  :mex:

Mmm ... 

Might have to find another good use for that stripwood from outer-space ...

... not sure if car building is it ?  L:

Si.

Those Tri-ang couplers bring back memories.

I had some Tri-ang carriages and a loco many years ago,
and remember trying to get them to work on Peco points.

Those wheels certainly didn't like the frogs on those points!

Regards, James
