    Very impressive loco, might the next project be a larger Turntable for the layout?

   When Bachmann Europe release their Ransome & Rapier 45 Ton Breakdown Crane (ROCKY prototype) it may
 be worth a look at for conversion . Possibly Bachmann US could piggy back production and add the faces?.

  To add

  The Lethbridge Historical Society has published two books on the Bridge. The first has a selection of construction
progress photos, the second is a reprint of the talk given to the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers  in 1909, with a series of plans for components of the bridge.

   Bachmann Europe plans to release a WW1 Baldwin 4-6-0T in HOn30 , a fair number were sold for service on Sugar Cane and Sugar Beat line, likely they could also have been used for a mining Rly.

  Another company (cannot recall who ) plans to issue a WW1 Alco 2-6-2T, also in HOn30.

   A 60ton 3truck would suit me fine, as their were at least 6 built for 2&1/2 Ft gauge (aka On30), could use one for my Copper mine.

  Looking very good, as to a system for the roof, might it be possible to use a catch strip and magnets to hold them in place, so they could be removed for viewing of the interior?.

 Looking good, I used Tap-In-Splice connectors for my wiring. Lot neater the solder and no nicks, burns or smoke to put up with. And you do not need to cover. I am currently rebuilding my layout and reusing them from the first layout, no problems in 4 years of use.

   Precision Scale make 3 lengths of drawbars, for this purpose. I make up my own, quicker and cheaper to couple up cars in block of 3.

      The Grandt line  C&S 4 wheel caboose, would likely be suitable.

   Always interesting to hear from a South American modeller, regardless of scale or gauge.

  I model in On2' 6" various Railways from Argentina. Brazil, Chile with other rolling stock from
 Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Peru & Russia for good measure.
  Just rebuilt a model of the Norquinnco River bridge from the Esquel line, now need to rebuild
 approach abutments.
  Long term modelling includes 2 Misubishi Rio Turbio 2-10-2s and Baldwin-Whitcomb road & switcher units built for Braden Copper in Chile. A Esquel Henschel 2-8-2 is progressing a bit at a time.

   Interesting how the water tanks on the engine are refilled, totally off the wall.
