  • Lou’s Logging Wood Disc load

    I opened my to-do file looking for a quick project to build, and remembered this one I always liked at the top of my list to build for myself.

    While looking through the internet a few years back for ideas I found this inspiration from Jim Wanlas MMR-585. He did a HOn3 Logging Disconnects with Special Load build. See here; http://jamestowntrains.com/my-quest-...h-special-load

    My build will start in the next post. [:-cowboy]

    Where I like the unusual type of logging equipment and log scenes, I knew I had to have my own version of this type of log load built for myself. I had some Kadee logging disconnect trucks, stashed away on a shelf, which would be just fine for the use on this type of build.

    This is the type of load that the Slate Run Railroad, or the Elk River Logging Railroad could have delivered to their site, and made-up into a sign for their Railroads.

    Below is the Kadee kits I’ll be using along with the Kadee #15 couplers.

        This will be interesting to follow. Have fun with those #15 couplers.

          Wow! Isn’t that the prototype for the original Center-line track cleaner car??

          Looking forward to seeing this gem as it germinates...[:-magnify]

            Well thank you Pete for calling it a Treat, and not a Sentence! :up:

              No worries, Louis, but I do wonder what happens if this creation gets derailed. Does it become Disk-combobulated?

                You are right George, I've done #15's before and chased around the metal spacer dowel that goes into the springs. I've since picked up a Kadee spring pic, helps tremendously. :erm:

                  Thanks Karl, now that you pointed that out, it truly looks like exactly that. [:-cowboy] :up:

                            I'm watching too.

                            Hope that disc doesn't slip, otherwise the whole train might have to back out.

                              A slipped disc. Very painful.... [:-cry] [:-cry] [:-cry]
