    I have just finished scratchbuilding this most unusual bridge. The original bridge was made by the "Sound Timber Company" to cross the Sauk River .

    Oh, that IS nice!
    By the way, did you ask about removing the shay cab so you could do the same with it as you did with the porter? That should be very neat to see.

    Like you said Paul. Unuaual bridge, but I love it. Almost brings me back to nature. Like Tyson said, I like the outhouse on the end of the train.

    Thanks kind people, "Outhouse on wheels" Hmmm, and I thought it was a Porters loo on wheels.LOL

    Yes, I am going to re-do the shay, but make a wood surround all round it.

    Now this is a very interesting project Paul. I imagine this type of bridge didn't have a long life as the loggers had to keep moving to new ground. An easy one to take apart and reassemble where needed next.
