Starting to look like FT's around here... The only one of those types I saw was in Reno on the SP.

Too bad no one will do the LeToureau loader... http://www.alaskarails.org/historical/whittier-80-90/DF-piggy.jpg

That's a big loader that also would work for lumber..

Art, MR had plans for a LeToureau in a back issue, and an article on building one in HO. I have it scanned and can dig it up if you'd like a copy.

A comment and a question...

Check out those whitewalls! Imagine having to keep those clean...

"This model is based on the PC-90 which made its debut in the late 1960′s..." What's that mean? Like 1966, or 1969? It makes a difference to some.

Now seeking Pacific NW N scalers to create a Modutrak-style modular club featuring NP's shared mainline between Seattle and Portland. PM me if interested.

The DeLuxe "Reachstaker" is a more modern prototype than the piggy-packer. There is room for both.

Bryan,

The earliest documentation of a PC-90 in use that I have been able to find is 1968.

Got a copy of the mag in the pile.. I've also got tires I found from an HO kit or another tractor that'll work in N scale. Just need to build the rest..

He did as I have had them in my hand. They were auctioned on eBay long before the molds were. I believe that Daniel was a bidder on them too.

Neville has purchased several master inventories from companies that have gone out of business and he is getting his feet wet in what he will be doing with all of the masters.

The track is long and the prize is great. Ought to be a hell of a horse race.
