Default Hartford Seattle 22' Log Car Kit

Hi

Can anyone kindly help me with a question about this log car kit? I've already built the version with rails that takes the Barnhart Log Loader, but I would like to build another one as the "plain" version - i.e. the one without the rails. As best as a try, when I check out the plans and diagrams, I can't quite make out the arrangement for the main bunks.

It would be really handy if anyone could give me a few pointers, or even better some pics!

Thanks in advance
Ken

Thanks for the link Dana. That's quite an interesting site. I had searched the net, and found some info, including models for HO, but drew nothing for the 22' plain loggin car. But I'll keep searching! Thanks again. Ken

The layout is the same as the plans from Hartford give you 2 different main bunks when building. Id just use the drawings from Hartford if you plan to cut your own wood as I assume you will have to since getting the kit will be pretty scarce now. Since I built 3 of these all with rails the spare main bunks with no notches for rail went to the scrap pile. Probally used them to mix epoxy or something.

Again, thanks for the reply. I just recently managed to pick up 3 of these kits - one twinpack and the other a single. In the twinpack there are extra parts to top the bunks for the "plain" version of the car - but weirdly only enough parts to do 1 car! The other single kit had no such extra parts. I've previously made the rail version of this car a few years back, so I thought a plain version would be good. Just a bit surprised that Hartford weren't consistent with the contents of the kits!

I feel fairly happy with the general arrangement of a plain car, although the instructions say that some or all of the end and centre (smaller) bunks can be left off, and I would have liked a picture reference to be sure. I can find plenty of pics (and a photo!) of the rail version, but drawn a blank on the plain one.

Looks like everyone builds the rail version!
