Re: height of Owl Mtn. lumber load

Claus Schlund \(HGM\)

Hi Tony and List Members,

I've been reading the various posts on this topic with interest.

I'd like to ask, in your opinion, could this lumber load kit be reduced in width and height to produce a reasonably proportioned lumber load in N scale? Remember, N scale is very roughly half the size of HO.

Naturally, in N scale the kit would represent larger timbers.

Subject: [STMFC] height of Owl Mtn. lumber load

       Awhile back, concern was expressed about the size of the loads. I have completed my kit, and the top of the lumber is about as tall as a 1937 AAR box car. I include a photo demonstrating that in my follow-on blog post about these loads. If you're interested, it is at this link:
