Hi
Having seen a rather nice Cat log loader in HO scale.
I wondered what else would be needed for a modern log loading siding.
And if a modern fit for mainline railroad as opposed to log line
log cars are manufactureed by any one.
This struck me as a simple easy to add business for a model railroad.
A siding, a pile of logs and the loader.
Or is there more to it than I think, unless the delivery point is
off world so to speak.
regards John

Here is a link from a Google search for railroad log loading. This link will take you to another forum and in that link is a similar question which will take you to another forum with a fairly up to date photo of loading logs using a grapple that is mounted on a log trailer truck.

I do know there are scale model log loaders on trailer trucks and a log loader that looks like a modified bucket loader. Check Walther's for log loader or do a Google search for ho scale log loader.
