Si.

Thanks Si. Scattered snow showers are in the long term forecast. That will hopefully further add to the atmosphere.  Tom

Took the day off from the clinic today. Placed some rafters on the engine house.



Before sealing it up and putting on the roof I put a few details inside..........including "Old Man of the Woods" warming himself by the fire.





Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

Two of the Amish Brethren have nailed up a roof on the Engine House at Railcamp. Next to come tar paper rolls and a clerestory roof to let out all that locomotive smoke while the engine simmers through the night.





Here is an overview of the Railcamp Engine House from the posterior view.



Thanks for L KING

2 and a half months later the backwoods engine house is finished.:glad:



The tar paper roof will keep snow off the locomotives and the hostlers.



The build of this structure has taken so long that some more Winter trees have sprouted up around the EH.



Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

I have always enjoyed the early steam logging equipment. The primitive prototypes of things to come in moving the logs. Since my layout is set in 1910 I thought I could bring to life one of these beasts:



The early Class A Climax with a vertical boiler.

Railway Recollections makes this nifty urethane kit.



So I got the kit and the "donor mechanism" from this Proto 2000 switcher.



So for the last several weeks in between Holiday Hoop De Doo I have been slowly building the beast.





The thing is big and hence I am going to name it "Bull O' the Woods." I had to widen the clearances along the right of way to get the thing to fit on the tracks. Fortunately it fits snuggly in the new Engine House.



Christmas Gift this year is a Tsunami 2 sound decoder loaded with geared locomotive sounds and over the next few weeks I will be installing this in the locomotive.

Thanks for following along. Doc Tom

Hey Doc!  I bought one of those kits too.  They are very cool looking.  Can't wait to see how yours turns out.  I'm sure it will be stellar.  I just love those old Class A Climax bodies. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Steve. It is a nice kit. Two pieces were "warped" but flattened out using the boiling water trick explained in the very good instruction sheet. The donor diesel switcher has twin flywheels which makes this a very smooth low speed runner. I found a round speaker that fits nicely in the round water tank on the front of the locomotive. Next few weeks will be electrical work and fiddling with small wire soldering to get the decoder to work and make some sounds of steam.

Very neat Tom...I looked at the last photo and thought "that loco has side rods!"... but then remembered that the "siderods" are really pickups for the wheels. Had me going for a minute, good for the old heart.
This should be a cool little lokie, more please...

Woodie
