    If I was not well into building a passenger train, I would take a look at the Scenery Unlimited S Scale
  passenger car roofs and underframes. (Aug 2012 MR, pg 16, has a review). they are darn close to the Bachmann Passenger car, which I have also assembled in to my Local Passenger service.

      The FCA&B (Chile) operated OF 2-8-4T's while still 2"6" gauge
      The Rio Turbo  (Argentina) has rebuilt a couple of their IF 2-10-2s for tourist service
      The Patagonian National (aka Esquel in Argentina) operates IF & OF 2-8-2's

       2&1/2FT gauge Articulated Locomotives 2-6-0+0-6-2T

       Lots of larger locomotive's to choose from.

  Actually Baldwin built at least two 3Ft gauge Pacifics SN 41677 & 41678, Outside frame.
   Small tender but a nice looking engine neverless.

    Glad to be of help

    The hoist itself  is beautiful, however the skid leaves a lot to be desired (no NBW detail) a new skid is
 relativity easy to build and detail for the hoist/skidder to be set on. NBW detail could be added to the orginal skid which would improve it's appearence a lot!.

  On the hoist, the shutoff valve should be turned so the valve handle is vertical and a loop of chain  added,
    to open and close it, yet to find a O scale figure with arms long enough to reach it <G>.

   Forgot length of Hoist off skid base  2&1/8 Inchs

97  Discussion Boards / On30 / Re: skidder dimensions on: February 21, 2012, 06:26:50 PM


   Length    4 Inchs
   Width      1&3/4 Inchs
   Height     3&3/4 Inchs
   Height     3&1/9 Inchs  offf skid base


     Just about anywhere in North America, just loose the skid and set it up as a hoist engine, not necessary
 to limit it's use to a log skidder. As I understand the model was based on an "American" Hoist model.
  Two of mine have lost the skids and are used as flat car load's, not sure yet what will happen with the third one, have made up a new skid (looks much better then the one supplied.

    MMI a division of Precision Scale is modelling the 8-18c, Bachmann may not want to duplicate this model
