They look great Bernd! It looks like they were 3D printed, or are they something you made up with your own magic machine?

As some will recall, Lester Lindquist used to offer logging cars and a loco in TT back in the 1980-90's, and maybe beyond....he was pretty aged. Anyway, I thought I've seen some of those on the eBay recently, most likely from Larry S's collection or whoever's collection Mr. Big Boy Games has been trying to sell off on there. Maybe you could track down some of those.

Are those cars going to have Micro-Trains couplers or Kadee couplers?

When I was vacationing in Washington state in Montasano last month (Sept. 2018), I was fascinated with the lumber industry and the now defunct Simpson Lumber Railroad that had one of their four SW1200 locomotives was named the City of Montasano, number 1202. I purchased this book Logging to the Salt Chuck, over 100 years of Railroad Logging in Mason County, Washington. A pictorial history of Simpson Timber Company. Associated logging railroad operations including the Arcata & Mad River Railroad. By John T. Labbee and Peter J. Replinger.
Great book full of photos, highly recommended.

I went camping at the Coho Campgrounds at Wynoochee Lake located in the upper left corner on the map about 35 miles north where I was staying in Montasano.
