Glanville Lumber Co. number 4, a kitbashed, back-dated plastic 0-4-0 Teakettle, dumps its ashes in the pit between the rails provided for them, and a crane and bucket behind the locomotive — a British Mike's Models kit — is ready to dig the ashes out of the pit and put them in a flatcar with wooden sides (not in the photo). Behind the 0-4-0 teakettle sits a locomotive under repair at the entrance to the Glanville Lumber Co. engine shed. A painted brass logging car sits empty next to the little teakettle, which provides the basis of a how-to-do-it photo-article I sold to Model Railroader almost 20 years ago but which, as far as I know, never appeared. New domes, a hose reel, chain, rerailers, wood fuel, and an engineer were added to the airbrushed and lightly weathered engine. The ground was created by using matte medium to fasten real soil, tiny pebbles, and ground foam to a plywood base previously painted with a medium brown, and green-dyed unwound twine provides the weeds and patches of high grass. Details from a Fine Scale Miniatures kit appear around the scene [GPL].
