Jerry,

You are in the right place. There has been little activity here. Some of the logging topics get included in other threads, particularly the Fine Scale Forum. I am guilty of having done that.

I have litle to add to the difference between the #50l and #551 trucks, except the 551 is listed as in use from 1900 to 1941 and the 551's are a dollar higher. I have used only the 501's on the SW Backwoods MOW Train and plan to convert all logging rolling stock to 501's. Sorry, I can't be of more help but I left my Kadee catalog in New Mexico.

If you care to post a topic to this forum, jump right in.

Thanks,

Jim

Jerry, I had to go to Kadee's website because I'm unfamiliar with the #551's.
http://www.kadee.com/htmbord/page92.htm

I'm not sure what they mean by "self-centering" unless it refers to the way the frames are "equalized" over varying track conditions.

Like Jim, I'm using the #501's on my work train and other cars. I like their appearance and the way they roll. I did notice that the 551's are 50 cents more per pair than the 501's.

After we started up the Finescale Forum last winter, it kind of became the "catch-all" for a number of topics and discussions that should have been posted elsewhere. We've got several on-going threads that probably should be in the HO Forum or in the Layout Construction Forum or .... And I'm as much to blame as anyone for letting it happen. So it's not just the Logging Forum that has seen little activity as a result.

Hey, Jim, nice list but do you also have a list of model manufactures of logging and mining related items. In particular I've seen somewhere in the past a manufacture of saw mill equipment. But now that I'm looking for it it seems to have gone into hiding. I know Walthers lists some Keystone items but there are still a good number missing.

Sorry Rusty,

I don't have a list of model manufactures. Great Idea though, I'll do some web searches and post up a list of what I find.

Thanks for pointing it out,

Jim

I just brought a book called 'Mountains of Ash - A history of the Sawmills and Tramways of Warburton and District' by Mike McCarthy ISBN 0 909340 41 2. It is a 300 page illustrated hardbound book on the area I am modelling and where I grew up until I was about 8. I am amazed by and have been enjoying the wealth of pictures and look forward to reading it in detail. There were 66 major mills there before the war and what seems like dozens of trestle bridges and interesting structures. A narrow gauge line ran down our main street! I never knew that. I have a ton of reference material now.

The book is published by the Light Railway Research Society of Australia. The website is at http://www.lrrsa.org.au/

The self centering trucks have been cast with a pair of small ramps between the bolster and the mount. when you pick up a car with self centering trucks, the wheels automatically align with the centerline of the car for easier placement on the track without having to fiddle with the wheels. I find these are difficult to "three point" tripod mount so I don't use them.

Hello everybody,

I came across a really neat logging site today, thought you might like it. It’s focused on Vancouver Island, off the West Coast of BC (my neck of the woods). It has some interesting history and photos, as well as a very cool interactive camp walk-through which you can view in 3D! [:-jump2] Very fun, check it out at http://www.camptocommunity.ca/english/

Found this page on Google. Measured drawings as well as operating procedures for a myriad of mining paraphernalia.
