- The anticipated release of MT's Gunderson Husky is finally here.
This new addition to modern "Z" is a welcomed sight. Unfortunately,
these well cars don't have the capability to load and unload
themselves. Therefore, in the anticipation of their arrival into my
intermodal yard, I have scratch built a Mi-Jack Translift intermodal
crane. Actually, I am not quite finished with it, but so close that
I have finally posted photos in the photo section under the folder
named Intermodal Crane. This crane is only the beginning of a set of
specific built structures and vehicles for my yard. I hope you enjoy
the photos. All comments are welcome.

- Excellent as always Tim, now you just need to build a piggy packer
too. In fact, build 2, and I'll trade you for one of them. :)
The Mi-Jack looks great! I can't wait to see the yard you are planning.
I talked with the owner of Searails the other day. They are planning on
releasing an Mi-Jack for Z scale in the next month. They are also releasing large
harbor cranes, container stacks, container ships and other accessories for
intermodal facilities. Exciting stuff in my opinion!
