    I've been working on a model of the CN tug that sailed Okanagan Lake here where I live.

    It's a Linghburg model that I 'waterlined', using a tablesaw with a fine plywood blade. I finished the cut with a belt sander. It will be going to our club layout to replace a temporary model.

    I have another tug that I'm scratchbuilding for my own layout. It will be a copy of the SS Naramata, a CPR tug that also sailed lake Okanagan. That tug is now in a museum in Penticton along with CNR tug #6.

    Ralph's for fun!

    That's a terrific scene Glen! I agree that the tug looks at home there on your layout but the club will be lucky to have it.

    The tug looks good, Glen, as does the entire scene. Who makes that crane?

    The crane is an IHC model. It's been around so long it's probably been reproduced by too many companies to count.

    No the Walthers crane it a little different. I remember getting this crane back in the seventies but then it was made by Tyco.
