    Here's a kit/scratchbuilt body I made for an old 0-6-0 saddle tank I had laying around, thought I would make good use of it.

    Depot now in full swing, new fire truck being delivered.

    Neat little switcher!. Also good to see the "masochism depot" in a complete scene.

    Fire Truck

    Hi Shamus, Now that's just "slick as a whistle":D :) I would have never in a million years come up with the idea of a fire truck to operate on the rails....I assume that its a hi-railer because of the flanged wheels. Almost afraid to ask:eek: :D ...is it powered???:) Like the saddle tanker too!!!:)

    That's one cute li'l "docksider switcher", how many miles to the one barrel of fuel oil? :) .

    The firetruck and tender:- Definately a "must have" for a logging RR. There seems to be no end to your imaginative ideas! That's what puts you layout in the "high-end" of modelling. I'ts great!

    Also, I'm admiring the fine railings around the depot's platform. very nicely done!

    Matthyro Will always be re-membered

    Another example of the busy Badger Creek company. There is no doubt there is always something different happening. Just look around:D
    Great modelling and photography Shamus my friend

    Shamus I have admired your work from the first time I found your web site. I would like to know where you got the wheels for the truck.
    Thanks Mike.

    Hi Mike, and welcome to the gauge, the wheels for the HO truck are in fact N-scale wheels from an old flat car I had.
    Vic, the firetruck is a dummy, not a working model but the saddle tank is a working model, started out life as a Bachmann 0-6-0.

    Thanks everone for the kind welcome.
    Shamus I like the saddle tank it looks good, I would like to see more about it on your website sometime. I was on your site yesterday and saw the picture of the log lift and I would like to know where you got the blocks you use in the rigging.

    Hi Mike, I got the blocks in the rigging from a firm in the UK called Langley Models
    If you email them, they will suppy you with them.
