Here are a couple of photos of my Sheepscott Work Barge that I promised someone here I would post.










Hope this helps whoever it was that was looking - sorry it took so long to post these.

Nicely done, Mike! I've often wondered if I made a mistake in not buying a Sheepscot kit a few years ago. They build up into good looking models.

That's a great looking model - I especially like the job you did on the rigging. Well Done!

Mike, very nice work.

I've never bought a Sheepscot kit but once at a Timonium show someone was selling a coaling tower kit for $40 at the white elephant table. I picked it and looked through the box and everything seemed to be there. For some unexplainable reason I put the box back down and walked away. I thought about it a little more and decided to go back and buy it but by then it was already gone.

Rick,
Let me do this for you:

Mike C.,
I know that MRPO, and the Big Little Railroad Shop still have a few of the older Sheepscott kits on the shelf. If anyone wants to know which ones, let me know and I will check the next time that I am in those establishments.

Mike, you have done a great job on the barge. It makes me want to model a waterfront scene on the layout.

Mike,

Nicely done model. Do you have a place to put it, or is it going to be a shelf orphan?

Hi Mike,
It was me who asked for additional pictures.
I have completed the hull but still have the rest to complete and these pictures will be a big help.
I only hope I will be able to half as good a job as you have done on the kit.
Did you solder the brass parts together?
I also have the 45 Ton Truck Crane which I also hope to put together.

Speaking of Sheepscot, George Barrett no longer makes structure kits but he does make vehicles and he has just redone his web site.
If you are into older trucks etc. have a look.

Again thanks for the pictures as they will definitely help with my construction.

Some very nice modeling. The barge sure looks like quite a project. My Harbor Terminal Railway now has a harbor area and a barge sure would fit nice. I have a unbuilt FSM Pile Driver that might fill the bill. This would be the second one am going to build. The first one is on George Sellios layout in the Manchester Harbor. Frank B and I built a pair of the Pile Drivers for George, way back when. I forgot all about it, until your barge jogged the old memory.

Thanks for the kudos guys.

George: No, this isn't a shelf model. This sits on the waterfront on my portable layout.

John: No, I did not solder anything on this kit. Everything is just CA'd together.

Mike,

Nice job on the C&L Barge. Your photos caused me to dig out my kit for a "look see". I can't tell from your photos if you gave your barge the list that the instructions suggest. At any rate I filed away your photos for when I break into this one. Again nice looking model.

Thanks , Chuck . George Barratt at Sheepscot used to do some interesting kits, it is a shame he no longer produces them . I find that what he sells now does not appeal to me nearly as much ,
