A Boer War style land train?
It'd be a lot faster to build than on of these(there's some line drawing plans on the traction engine thread which if  I remember rightly Jon added) I'll confess it's not a model I've made for a long time.How ever it's just a series of boxes with wheels,even the engine is simple once you take a second look.Infact you could turn one out in a couple of evenings.
If your not a regular scratch builder then the Boer War version would be a great starting point,as you'd use pretty much the same methods on the log hauler .( I promised I'd get round to doing a tutorial on one but got completely sidetracked with a Space 1889 flyer in card.Then a pulp'd two man airship.)
But if you do decide to make either one feel free to pick my brains such as they are  ;D and I'll help with what ever I can. I'll add that there are some lovely of the versions of the Boer War train already floating around on the forum.(If on occasion a little over complicated.)so you should find all the inspiration you'd need right here in the forum.
Mark.

That is stunning work, even more so knowing it was all scratch built!  :-* :-* :-*

What a wonderful mixed up sound. I'm almost tempted to make one with wheels.
I'm surprised at its turn of speed,I wonder if it moves even faster as I doubt it's moving at full speed through the show ground.
Thanks for the link ,as it was hard to visualise it moving but it's quite inspiring tempted to look for other odd ball vehicles to build and leave the railway version for next year.
