LGB Porter and cedar short logging cars
of Page

  • I came across the following picture in a book my friend Rod loaned me.  The book is titled The Locomotive Portraits / Kinsey Photographer.  The book is full of logging locomotives in the Pacific NW.  The text with the picture says:

    "Many shingle mills made use of light railroads to bring their cedar bolts out of the woods. Here a load of bolts is about to be transferred to the pond to supply grist for the mill".

  • I really like the LGB Porter I have and when I saw the above picture went about creating the scene.  I haven't done anything yet to the Porter but will eventually repaint it.  For the flat cars I started with the Hartland Flat Car kit which you can pick up for under $8.00.  The kits comes all black.  I painted the body with Krylon rust color primer and the floor decking with Folk Art Barnwood.  I replaced the plastic wheels that come with the kit with USA black metal wheels.  The log pieces are from branches in the yard.
