I'm not sure what you mean by "deleteing" stuff, however I am at your disposal.
Would you say this is a Grindre project or a renovate from a previous one ?

Send it on, I'll run it through the wringer. I'll set it up on my 100mph track
and see how fast I can push it. LOLOL

Just a note to say that I've updated my little red caboose.
It now is equipped with my 'new' couplers and a few other minor changes.
I did not change the kuid number so an overwrite will be necessary if you want the change.
If you like Elvenor's couplers, do NOT DL the latest update. It is not a necessary update.

Well, guys, I thought I'd share another project with you. This time it's a little 13 ton T Boiler Shay I've been working on. I'd like to get this and my vertical boiler Shay out the door by the first of the year but I'm not sure I'll make it.
Poly count is well over 6,000 and there is still a lot to do, yet.

Anyway, here she is so far;

Have fun,

My God Man, I love it !!! :mrgreen:
You are definitely in the Shay Domain. And now since you are such the expert with two
under your belt, you may as well get ready for some odd-ball requests. I can hear 'em
coming if you post them on DLS.
I'm gonna suppose that since you are tuned to the 36ng dial, would there be any room
in there to change (or even ADD) the bogeys to 30ng ? Perhaps changeing the spacing
on another set and offer them as options (for some of us other folks). hehehe.

Luvya,man

Thanks, Ken. It's coming along nicely, IMO, too.

These are Shagster's trucks, regaged to 36". Try his stock bogeys under it. Aren't they 30" already? Maybe they're 24", can't remember.

36" has always been my love so I think I'll stick with it, for now.

Enjoy,
Rick

I'm really liking the way this little engine is coming along, sorry, here's another update, although a minor one;

Thanks Ishie,

I didn't like the green end beams and I tried red, too. I think I'll stick with plain old wood...

Not to sure I like the 'new wood look' so, I thought I'd post this 36 foot single beam log car to get your opinions. It's another M-LOG car and uses Rich's 32 foot log stacks.

Let me know what you think...

I rather like it. You could make one old and use random texture replacement. To carry it one step farther, have some random new replacement parts on the old one.

OK, folks, here's the final car. I just had to tone down that 'new' wood look a bit. (It's just not me.) It's still a bit new but aged a little.

It's a 36 foot single beam log car accepting Rich's 32 foot M-LOG stacks. 36" narrow gauge, of course, and can be found at all the usual places.
Built in TRS '04, tested and working in '06 & '09 as well.

Have fun!
