A new skidder has arrived to bring the logs in from the woods. I'm using a Bachmann Industries model of a Tacoma even though it is a bit undersized. This is one of the Bachmann pieces that come two to a package. It is very much like the Tacoma yarder drawn by Philip Schnell and featured in Merv Johnson's book "In Search of Steam Donkeys". I found it to be very accurate in detail but parts of it are anywhere from 15% to 30% smaller than shown in the drawing. It's shown here on a skid built to the SS limited specs for their skidder.
