Love the Rayonier style mallet, Reg !

I'm between the old railroad camp near Hoquiam,
where many of those were used,
and Vail, where others like it were also used in the logging lines.

Of course, they're all gone now.

But in your case, you could justify it,
as the company boss decided to keep one steam loco on the property,
because he just wanted to.

With a few old interurban cars (like they used at Vail),
you could have where they just kept the passenger equipment,
and take people on rides for special occasions.

If I'd modeled a line like this in the diesel era,
you can count on that I would have done something like that.
