    Moose re-identified a few locomotives for local railways.

    One is for the local timber removal company and the other for the local railway that services the smaller communities of the area.

    This included repaint and custom decals.

    The Spectrum 2-6-6-2 was originally from Dick Gorman's Boston & Maine. Moose had replaced the original tender with a Spectrum USRA Short tender and installed an inexpensive function-only Digitrax decoder. Somewhere along the way, Moose lost its glazing. Arggg!

    The Athearn 2-6-0 was used, off of the evil water inlet. Modified the tender to add an inexpensive function-only Digitrax decoder.

    Moose added a caboose to the timber removal company's roster, as well as a dedicated caboose for the MT&P's future maintenance of way train.

    This included repaint and custom decals. Will eventually add glazing to these and all other cabeese. Moose no know why manufactures never included glazing...

    Lots of stuff gets done when you don't have to waste time stampeding the photo-challenged!

    Moose completed two 55 ton hoppers for the future North Fork Skokomish Mining Company.

    Here they are sitting outside of a warehouse located in Moose Bay. Why, Moose no know...

    Painted and applied custom decals.

    That first photo makes a very nice scene! Somehow the cars look right sitting next to that building. Well done!
