Been follow along Louis. You never cease to amaze me with your varying types of projects. You're a hard one to keep up.

I like the idea of having the Big Wheel on a flatcar along with a cattle car to haul the oxen or horses to their destination.

Well thank you Bernd. And, you just gave me an idea!
People are going to get sick of me. But I'll be back with that idea you put in my head. Horse car, why didn't I think of that?

Thanks Ted. Get ready for more than because Bernd said I should build a cattle car to haul the oxen or horses to their destination along with the High Wheel. I found some "G" scale models, from a guy called the diorama man. Great looking models, so I think I'll do a horse car. Here are some of his Ox and Horse Cars.

I know yours is an open flatcar with draft horses, but seeing it with them onboard makes me think of the scene in Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid where the RR baggage door slides open and mounted Pinkertons leap out :)
