Burro Crane

what is the usual consist order for an ho scale work train on a regular model railroaders layout?

I'm looking to get the necessary cars, but i don't know the usual consist for a real work train.

That would depend on the task at hand.

If spreading ballast today, hopper cars or ballast cars or both would make up the consist.

If laying ribbon rail, a ribbon rail train would be in the picture. This would definitely have to be kit bashed.

But you could be picking up scrap, in which case you'd need a flat car with a burro crane on it, with electromagnet and a gondola on both ends of it.

You could be working with a road-master off loading bundles of cross ties, again with the burro crane and flats loaded with ties.

Or you could go with the "relief outfit." I have modeled one of these after SP Roseville Relief Outfit, circa 1972-6. There is an old clerestory roof coach and heavy weight diner car first and second out from the engine, a baggage car that has been altered to become a tool car for the hook (200 ton crane), the hook and idler itself (the boom always trails when being moved), two cars of "track panels" that I made using kit bashed pulpwood cars, and a caboose. These are a combination of Athearn and Walthers rolling stock. With up graded couplers and wheels I have no more than perhaps $125 to $140 in it, so it can be done fairly inexpensively. Ballast trains are probably the least expensive to model.

Go to the website www.caboosehobbies.com. Huge selection and best prices, usually, but when I'm shopping I look at different sites to see if what I am after happens to be on sale at the time. These include www.hobbylinc.com and www.discounttrainsonline.com. These are in Colorado, Georgia and California, respectively, so if you are ordering out of state you may save some additional coin with not having to pay sales tax. This varies from state to state, however and shipping is reasonable, around seven bucks for any size order either by Fed Ex ground or UPS.

I have done business with all and the customer service is terrific at all. I'd like to go to Caboose Hobbies in Denver. Huge place. I believe there is a real, full scale switch engine right in the middle.

Have fun!
