Beyond Scale Model Railroads

Over the Hill Construction Co. builds model railroads with scale model construction equipment.

Retired heavy equipment operator Mike Perigo is a natural with this Kubota K-008 excavator. Here he mines a gravel bank and loads it into his AB Mack scale model dump truck. The truck is capable of carrying nearly 3/4 cubic yards of material with sideboards installed, but when the gravel is moist, Mike rarely loads more than 1/3 of a cubic yard.
