Splendid work, Sledhead...I have always loved C-16s, your workmanship is certainly something to be proud of.

Woodie, that little 0-4-0 could run for days on the contents of that tender! Looks like the axe is as the ready to add fuel on the run if need be...

Thanks miner, I've always thought the C-16 was one of those "quintessential" narrow gauge locomotives, along with the light two-truck shay and the 0-4-0. I've always wanted one.

Yep, some models have something that inspires to go 'whole hog' on them!

Guess my best work in narrow gage so far is my weathered shay....... Going to have to do a lot of work to catch up with some of the folks here ;)

Well, for now I think my proudest visible modeling accomplishment is this little consist of kit-built items:






The locomotive is an N scale Climax Class A 18-tonner built from a Kato critter chassis and a kit by randgust.com. The flat-car and the saw-filer's shack are built from kits by RSLaserKits.

Looking at these photos those trip-pins and brass wire hand-rails look so shiny. I need to blacken those. It burns! It burns!

The layout backdrop is the extension at Portland Area N-Trak's club-house.

I got a third place certificate at the Pacific Model Loggers' Congress for that saw-filer's shack. I am moving toward doing more kits and more scratch-building and kit-bashing.

I think your Loco looks great !!!! And there no need to catch up with the rest of us. Your weathering looks great too. But that bike needs a little rust !!! (laughing)

Maybe the wrong scale (N) but this is my favourite.

Excellent work all! Of course I do have to say that Adam's N scale logging line is my favorite...Climax, log cars, and camp cars...I love it!

I am quite proud of this one:



It's Dill's Market by American Model Builders, but I adjusted it a bit to fit a small HOn30 layout I am working on ... a salmon cannery. As it is in Alaska, I am also adding this small building of Moose Airlines ... including one of its seaplanes.

I am especially happy with the weathering of the corrugated metal in the front.

Cheers,

Jeroen
