The next project was making the tongue/pole end cap. There are many types and styles to choose from. I made a version similar to the two draft horse team picture style. I started with a piece of Evergreen strip styrene #125, 1/8 wide, and wrapped it around a 1/8 piece of Evergreen tube 1/8 wide. Then glued a piece of Evergreen tube #228, 1/4 tube cut 1/8 wide, then cut in half to make the bottom skid plate onto the bottom of the end cap. Nut, bolt, washers, will attach this part to the tongue. Also, a doubletree and two singletrees will have to be made as well as a single neck yoke pole. And, a stop block for the tongue was made.

Louis,

I see you are still at it. I made a wagon and harness before, but nothing like what you are doing here. This is "extensive" work.

Very nice. An interesting build to follow. It's rare to see horses hitched up correctly in model
railroad work. It looks like you are doing a fantastic job of it.

Laying out the next step of the process, I will be using flat wooden toothpicks for the Draft horse hardware, along with Detail Associates #2206 wire formed eye bolts. The flat toothpicks were cut to size, sanded to a reasonable shape, and ready for a brown leather dye stain. Once dry, the eye bolts will be attached to make-up the doubletree, singletrees and the neck yoke pole. At least Im hoping that the eye bolts will cooperate for me.

Another unusual piece of equipment from you, Louis. Really unique. Great modeling and very imaginative on fabricating some of the parts.
