I just bought an Ho Huff n Puff 4 wheel crane car kit on ebay. It was meant for logging shortline, but I'd like to try my hand at building a mining modual for a future HO layout. Something like the one Glen Anthony, from Christchurch, New Zealand (http://www.trainweb.org/nzgr/Gn15/Gn15.html) made. Do you think this crane could be converted into a steam shovel?

That would be pretty small for a shovel...an interesting propect though, very few manufacturers put on out. One possible source would be to find an old MDC/Roundhouse 3-in-1 kit from the 70s on Ebay. They did offer one that was quite nice but, like the others, involved some creativity and scratchbuilding.
