   For a smaller OF Mikado consider the Balwin 2-8-2s built for Patagonia SN 55429-55453, a few are still in service on the Esquel Line.
     For a IF 4-6-0 Baldwin SN 40871 & 40872 Built for the Este de Minas in Brazil
     And for Super Power Mitsubishi IF 2-10-2 (20 Built) a few rebuilt for service in Argentina, films of them with a 60 car coal drag are impressive!.

   The boiler length was extended, which allowed the firebox to sit over the trailing truck. The 3 photos are all 3/4 views, but the extra length is easy to make out. The cab was shortened front and rear, with door closed
and a window installed.  An Oil Tender replaced the orginal SHAY bunker and Tender.

   In Brazil 2 80Ton SHAYS were rebuilt to 4-6-2 Pacific's and the Third one was rebuilt into a 2-6-0+0-6-2T
 SHAY-Kitson Meyer. One of the Pacific's is in a Museum there. Photo of the 2-6-0+0-6-2T is in
 Narrow Gauge off the Beaten Path

    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.

  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>.

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


    Royce

     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.
