Drrrrrrrrrrrr (drum roll)...tadaaa!!!  Here is the Riverdale kit loco with coal burning in the firebox for the very first time (M Foster):

Progress on the H&MGR today, started building a "proper" set of log loading skids.

The logs are rather green at this stage as I painted them in Metalex timber preservative, the green dye will fade I hope (well it does when we use it at work).  A steam hauler is now needed to complete the scene.  But from track level I think it's starting to look the part.  (JRinTawa)

Don't forget the "Search" above!
