Digging through my old catalogs I found these cuts that might be of interest to some the modelers here. Help your self if you can use one.

Great stuff, thanks for posting them!

The prospecting setup, with both hoist and mini-mill, is interesting. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that before.

Yes, thanks for posting. I recently took a tour of an old Southern Pacific depot and they had a Fairbanks depot scale that I am adding to my depot. Really cool stuff from a really cool era!

More ore stuff. Having problems with picture posting space. If I make the size any smaller the print would not be readable.

You could get a Cricut to cut the paper and embrace the new technologies.

Hey, Jerry, wait up! I think I'm about to join you ...

Correction: I could get a LASER to the cut the paper. Here is an example of a 1:24 scale laser cut paper model. -- Russ
