Si, many loggers used old tender frames for snow plows, heavy flat cars, all kinds of mischief....

The mind boggles.

Howdy Woodie :cb:

I actually scored recently ...
... 2 diecast Tri-ang 3-axle tender frames ! Previously unused, original spare-parts. No wheelsets or tank. Very CHEAP ! My kinda price ;)

I thought they looked pretty good as potential loco side-frames.
Could be an interesting option for a Mogul or Porter I suppose as well.

Yeah.
Heavy-flat or snow-plow ...
... thanks for the inspiration Woodie ! :bg:

I quite fancy a snow plow, maybe.
Does it ever snow down South, on the border ?

Could be a good frame for a small crane lash-up as well I guess.
Too C O O L . . .

:moose:

Backwoods Miniatures have a very nice looking On30 'double-ender' kit, for the Bachmann G.E. 45-Ton mech.

Yep, that's a cool critter. It uses an HO Bachmann siderod diesel mechanism. Mighty fine...

Galloping Goose. steampunk style, I suppose.
Looks like a recycling of an 1840's loco in the 1870-80's.
We Germans had this one:
