Man, I can't look at your stuff anymore. It makes me seriously contemplate a switch to On30. I like the quirky backwoods feel it allows, something you don't find much of in the 1970s HO scale I am in now.

Those are neat!!

Could you give me an idea of their actual size, compared to something like a quarter?

Yes, the main drive unit inside the box is from a Bachmann 44 tonner, the cab started life as a Ford A van.

The Railcar for workers, ah! I recognize that one also it's completion was not that long ago
Three Bachmann Porters with new bodies.
Well now after names like Dunkirk, Climax Bachmann Porters sounds somewhat anticlimax. don't you think? :D
My wife also enjoys the photos of your work and adds her congratulations along with mine for modeling well done.
Cheers Willis
