Hi Reg

That "motor" looks pretty authentic.

Pity about the rear light,
but getting the SW7 operating is the important thing I think.

Also looks good alongside a string of connected cars,
and the track appears to be "prototypical" as well.

Trust you will eventually have the same success with the SW1200.

Best regards

Alan

This thread will be quiet for awhile.

I am working on the re-organization of my model building space.

I will be detailing that work in the HO-OO section.

Thanks, Si.

I think it turned out pretty skookum. 

She is NOT fast. 
I still need to do a bit of tweaking of the programming.

I am thinking the second one will have dynamic brakes. 


I can't claim credit for the decal work on the log cars. 
I acquired those cars from Alan and they came lettered. 


Model work is a bit slow. 

I am working on the model-building shop. 
It was poorly thrown together 20 years ago.
 
I am really excited about progress so far. 
But it will be at least another two weeks before it is ready to be unveiled.  

Reg

Hi Si

Yes the photo of the SW1200 outside the shops was by me.

It is of the machine shop at Weyerhaeuser Longview taken in 1989.
The shop was built in around 1929 and looked not much different in 2015.

Up to the time Mount St Helens blew up in 1980,
most loco work and duties were out of the shops at Headquarters.

I think the Longview shops were used for heavy repairs,
and as a base for the Columbia and Cowlitz shortline.

After Mount St Helens, the Woods railroad power was based here as well,
and I think the CLC and woods lokeys got mixed up.

Attached is a photo by John Henderson,
of the Headquarters engine house/shops.

There is a posting on the organization of my model building corner in HO/OO thread.

For this thread, I am starting construction of the logging company's caboose this afternoon.

Alan:

In the process of going through the model building shop,
I found some old photos of a MoW "funky" (as John H. would say)
that caught my eye on a rail fan trip to Idaho.  

I forget where I found it, but I really want to build a model of it. 
Catch is, I would prefer to do it in 1/4" scale. 

I think I found it on a BN branch line. 
No notes on the back. 

But it sure would look nice as part of the logging operation. 
So some scratch building may be in the near future. 

At least some kit bashing. 
In HO.

A problem is developing. 
I am gathering more logging rolling stock than I have space to put it. 
Getting the reload in will help that.  

I will scan it and post a copy.

Reg

No.  I didn't.

I posted this photo, with more explanation, in the HO/OO Forum. 

But I wanted to post it here, because of the engine house.





The logging engine house was purportedly built by the late John Labbe. 

It fell into the late John Henderson's hands. 
John Henderson and John Labbe were good friends.

I have not other proof of its history. 
It is, however, a very nice model. 

I would like to pass it on to someone else.  It needs some minor repair. 
And anyone who wants it (free of charge) will have to come and pick it up. 
It is much too fragile to ship.

It needs a good home.

Reg
