Hey guys, we'll keep any discussion about the 6 ton motor in the photos page here instead of in the photos forum. Thanks.

i want to get the 3 of these out of there and to my dads as soon as the snow and mud goes away. also banks, we should go up there and get those wheels, axles and bearings off those cut up cars. must be at least 4 cars worth there. we can make multiple trips from there to dads house. may take a tank of gas each but at least then we will have them. then we can make some wooden cars like the ones up by adams.

Yeah, I think we should get them soon too... I wonder if i should just start going up after school and picking up what i can and dropping it off at your dad's on my way home. Just take a change of clothes for after school. I could handle the wheels by myself. or just do it in a day.. doesn't matter.

We should get the wheels, pull the flat car outa the shop and set up the next project. and somewhere in ther finish the mine motor :? oh well.. we'll do it.

yea, we need the snow and mud to go away first :? cant get the flat car on the track until the trailer wont sink in the yard. i agree we should get the next car in there. we also need to do some track work and lay what we have.

speaking of third rail.............................

when we get the 6 tonner, and if she runs, we'll need some 30 in gauge low vein hudson cars. Those'll be sooo easy to build with the plans. i wish we could find some frames for those though...
