Pole road were installed to save money! Almost everything ran on them was hand-me-down
or cobbled together in the "company shops"
Having said that, I'll add that Climax Locomotive Works (among others) and car builders saw
a chance to turn a buck and offered wheelsets to fit their locos and cars to adapt them to pole road running.
With that in mind I think just about anything you could build (within reason) would be prototypical, unless you
are trying for a particular car the way it looked at 5PM on July 23, 1921
Here is a shot from "Logging The Redwoods"
For your "flat car" you could just copy this "log trailer" and add a deck. That would be perfectly prototypical.
Are you going to use battery power? I think track power would be a bit problematic on round wood poles/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif
Those are great shots from Marc's site. I don't know where he comes up with them. Sometimes I think he has a time
machine and he goes back and gets the shots as he needs them
Great topic, more input.
