Re: Temporary Trailer-Engine haul

Cbrew,

Great looking setup. Curious why you didn't go for 4 tracks on the bottom? Also it is a PIA having the middle tracks on the 2nd layer vs having that area open as an "aisle" then one track on each wall like a lot of guys do with their trailers?

Wonder how much faster you could build a live steamer using something like this? https://youtu.be/NC63Xx2N1-8?t=1m9s Probably a near million dollar machine.

Re: From the ground up

I doubt the tracks in Georgia can realistically handle unloading and loading a 4-8-8-4, also you will not be able to use most turntables. My suggestion if going for something Union Pacific... 1.
