« Roots of Motive Power »
After more than 20 years of exhibitions all over Europe with our "Great John Timber RR", G scale layout, including no less than 8 participation in Adliswil, we are now back to HO scale, much easier to carry !
We remain faithfull to our favourite subject: logging railroads and skidding, which we know particularly well, after visiting so many logging places: museum and preserved railroads. Now, we have prepared our "Logging Museum", precisely called "Roots of Motive Power". This brand has been inspired by the famous logging Museum, well established in Willits, northern California, a place where regular tourists never go !!
Willits is certainly becoming the most important and largest logging Museum in USA. Another interesting museum, Camp 6, located in Point Defiance, Tacoma must move its complete collection of logging artifacts, including the only preserved Lidgerwood tower skidder, plus lots of other donkeys of all size. The more interesting pieces will come to Willits. We have tried to exhibit as many as possible typical logging locomotives and other material. It includes geared locomotives and "powerfull" logging Mallets.
Just like in the real museums, not all the locos are in working order, just preserved. The huge Mallet models should be remotored and equipped with a more adapted transmission. These brass engines had been manufactured way back in the seventies and eighties. But, also like in the real places, several locomotives are indeed in running order : see the geared locomotives, Shay, Climax, Heisler. Lots of typical logging machineries can also be seen here : donkeys, skidders (big & small), logging cars, cabooses, trucks, …
Basically, this diorama has been constructed long time ago by my good French friend Lloyd Marcet, as a part of a logging layout. Only this depot (facilities) has survived. Last year, I decided to "restore" and slightly modify this working diorama to its actual configuration, as a logging museum. It should be extended for more display. To explain and show the real thing, we will bring lots of documentation. Feel free to ask any question about US logging. Guy Tyteca
