Hi Lee, The Lionel Weyerhaeuser Mogul is a strange one. It is full scale, excellent smoke and sounds, great whistle but does not have Command Control, it is conventional. I bought it at the first Lionel warehouse sale in Concord, NC a few years ago for $200. They had a bunch of them, must have been a poor seller since it was conventional.

Nice set. I like the looks of the steam engine. Lots of detail.

Who makes the log cars? I have a bunch of MTH cars, but they are shorter...

Hi Tom, the log cars are from Lionel, all diecast. These are for Weyerhaeuser Timber Company, came in 2 three car sets but there was other company names also.. They had the giant single log per car but I gathered some more reasonable size logs from our Lilac tree.

They definitely look better with the smaller logs...

I have seen pictures of NW Pennsylvania logging roads, that feature one huge log on a log car. It was back when the loggers were cutting the original prehistoric virgin forrests that one existed there. There were some pretty big trees, but they were more of a oddity than a normal load. The smaller multiple log loads were the usual load...
