Here are some pictures of  John Foster's large scale railtruck. These were taken on the Mogollon Railway yards so this big boy sits on top of much smaller trackage.







As you can see, this 1:20.3 railtruck is a wonderful model, more details than I can describe. I didn't get to see it run, but imagine that it really does the job. You can see how large this is, it dwarfs the Mogollon's 35n2 trackage. Maybe John can give some more info on this fine piece of machinery.      Woodie

Neat lookin '34(?) Ford Pickup!

Gromit spent some time drooling over the middle photo--should I show him the receipt from the Vet?

It sure does look outta place on the "Mogollon". The only thing that looks rusty is the pooch. And the driver does not have the essential bottle in his hand.

Great looking model.

Hey Woodie,

Do have any more info on John's great looking G scale Rail Truck. !!! I'd like to know how he build it, And what did he use for motive power. I can't find him in the member's section of Free Rails.

Ronnie-John is Shayboiler...You need to ask him about the rail truck, I believe it was sold a while back. Of course, that's what John does, fine custom work.
