My excuse for not having finished the rotary is that it is still being rebuilt in the Great Northern Hillside shops in Spokane WA,
before being shipped to the Kaslo & Slocan in British Columbia.

On the positive side it is #2 on my list to get finished! Still need to set up the drive and build the roof yet.

I sure that Calgary has more snow then what show's in the photo of the Pueblo Mine.
Most of this winter Calgary has been colder than Whitehorse Yukon and I am sick and tired of digging snow,
getting to old for it.

:old dude::old dude:

Killing time, ran a block of Basswood through my power planner,
shaped the roof, with a section of metal blind for the curved portion,
vast improvement in looks for 15 minutes of work,
took longer to set up planner then getting it done.

Good luck with the rotary roofing.

 I was going to take photo's of the rotary outside in the SNOW, will wait for warmer 
weather. Mind you the SNOW is close to 2 Feet deep aka 70CM.

Hi Ken :wave:



N I C E !  snow plough ... Eh!  :thumb:

Good job Ken. :)



It looks like the general wheelbase & layout is quite similar to the Newfoundland Railway one.





It's very tempting for M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co. to have a go at one !

But we're thinking that a 'wedge' like your other  C :cool: :cool: L  plough, earlier in the Thread ...

... might be the one to try. L:



The list of hybrid-components for your 'wedge' makes interesting reading Eh! Ken !! :shocked:



I tried to buy a clapped-out 'Tri-ang' one a while back, mainly for it's wedge.

But ended up seeing a decent one & bought that instead.



Can't chop it up though, far too MIB and 'collectable'. ;) ...

... and you Guys thought I paid £0.99p for everything ! :P



I think the LEGOs could stay.

What are you gonna do Ken ?

Coat the bricks with some styrene-sheet ?



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:

Watchout for MOOSE on the track !! :old dude:

A lot of the early Rotary Plows were built to a standard

design (A Canadian Invention by the way). Although Thomas

the Tank Engine featured a Rotary Plow (Dustin), might be a

bit of overkill for your Railway. Google "British Railway

Snow plows for a photo collection and a couple of

interesting video.s of them in service.

Somewhere I have a TRI-ANG Snow Plow blade, :us: used the

wing's for my FCAB Snow Plow. Not to concerned with

:moose::moose::moose:, trying to find suitable sized Lamas

I will overlay the LEGO with riveted Evergreen sheet.

may round the corner's, not sure yet.

Canadian Ken Eh!

Hi Ken :wave:



I'm gonna check out 'Dustin' the snow plough ! :)



Anyway, looks like you've pretty much got the railway snow problem sorted with your rotary ! :thumb:

Now you just need something for your driveway !! :f:



How about an accessory for your Allis Chalmers ? L:





Model 666 ! :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

I could have used that, mind you the CONDO board would have

gone ballistic if I had one. I think I will leave that

conversion for another modeler to tackle. After my On2.5

Rotary is done I need to finish up a HO Rotary Plow. Next

project is a Brazilian Oil Tank Car aka as the CIGAR, stay

tuned. You may want one also?.

Canadian Ken Eh!
