The Davenport arrives in the yard pushing a wagon with an engine on it that has come in for some much needed attention in the work shop. The modifications to the little locomotive can clearly be seen and make it look a little different to the norm. It has also now had a little more weathering applied. The engine and other items on the wagon are left over bits from the truck conversions.

The view looking down on the group shows a couple of modified ex military figures discussing a problem with the driver of the Davenport.



The problem solved, we see the loco depart with the man standing on the footplate. It was obviously taken in the era before health and safety became an issue. You may remember it, we just used common sense in those days.

The Simplex type loco arrives pushing a minimal train. The man hitching a ride on the engine cover opens gates at level crossings and is a 1/32 scale Siku tractor driver. He is made of a flexible hard plastic that is not easy to cut or glue. I have moved both his arms down slightly by making cuts at the shoulder joint then repositioning the arms. I found super glue worked by making several small applications and keeping the joint under pressure. Paint then hid the join.

The Quad arrives from the fields one evening having picked up the tractor drivers.
The seated figure in front of the coal stage is another ex military character with a tiny Labrador puppy inside his shirt.
The children like this when counting how many animals there are on the model. It keeps them occupied while the adults watch the trains.

The real Quad HAD to be designed by a Star Wars fan!

I don’t think Star Wars was even heard of when the guy invented the quad Herb.

A selection of photographs taken at our last exhibition a few weeks ago. They were taken by Andy Knott my fellow operator.



The picture shows the wood chopper taking a rest with his Labrador puppy in his shirt.

This one features a Fordson EIA Power Major warming up before starting the days work.

The guy with the puppy in his shirt looked familiar...and I know why! He has visited Mogollon before and was involved in a high stakes poker and drinking tournament. Plus, he used shoe polish on his hair so nobody would recognize him.



He's the lone guy with his back to the camera, but he does still have that doggie with him. The fellow across the table is a "rough customer" and the other man is a dead ringer for Muj. As I recall, after the game, the gent wandered down to the Gila Hotel for some more "fun".

We have a saying over here, “great minds think alike” Woodie.



The guy with the little puppy is one of a group of four German tank personnel made by Master Box. I found them quite by accident when my local model shop changed hands and started specialising in military modelling. Master box make one or two other civilians as well as a few ladies, candidates for your bordello perhaps.

An unusual view taken from the top of a storage barn next to the engine shed looking down the yard towards the fiddle yard end of the layout.



A Simplex type loco is propelling a train of wagons loaded with sacks of wheat into the yard.



The quad is parked outside the greenhouse and will depart shortly to the fields to bring back the tractor drivers after their day’s work.
