    Apparently, CN and CP never have train wrecks.

    Or maybe they just can't afford a crane.

    I could easily build a box on a L9000, in fact I have two of them here and I was just trying to decide on what to do with them (I have two trailers and four tractors). I want to find or make a tank ... I need a fuel truck. But how would you make the wheels and supporting hardware for the rails? Got any detailed pictures?

    Love that crane. I have never bought on eBay and don't know how it works but I am going to try for that one.

    I may do another build of the truck again, with stryene and do a picture tutorial. I used a set of atlas wheels for hi railer wheels and a dummy knuckle coupler from bachmann that i had. I wanna actually build another one, with the hi railer wheels in a more correct position. Hmm..may start that as a project soon. lol

    Those Tichy crane sets are great! They've been available in kit form for a long time, though they used to be sold by Dimi-Trains. Despite the high price () I like the idea of a ready to run version, especially that Pennsy version with the safety yellow cars!

    I looked at that as a possibility but then I went over to the south end yard and I was looking at the wheels on a Ford F250(?), whatever the 3/4 ton Ford is, and the wheels are much smaller than the train wheels. How do we handle that? Or do some railways have different equipment?

    You can buy the train wreck set from Tichy in kit form for $35.00 USD:

    (The voices I hear in my head may not be real, but sometimes they come up with a good idea.)

    Have fun.
