    That my freind is the Lombard Log hauler! One of my favorite pieces of equipment. I belive it is brought out once a year.
    Now that would make a great model!

    Works now Shamus...

    Cam, that is nice! Do you suppose if you trace the family trees back a few hundred years, Paul and Geoff are distant cousins? They seem to share a modeling gene :D :D :D

    They are both leading modelers in this genre and an inspiration to those of us with limited imaginations.

    I have never seen a web site for Leigh Creek , below is the web site for Great Model Railways which produce the video for Leigh Creek.There are a few pictures there which maybe of some interest.

    Maybe The Beast would make a nice project. Better built up a chruch or two before releasing that on the layout though!

    OK, I added an "A"
