It can be possible. I have to see. As it is now as you see on the photos it is at is outmost position.

The log carriage has been nagging me and tonight I went ahead and tried to change it. It went very well. I had to unsolder the part from the frame and then cut the sliding part off, trimming it with a file and then soldering it back on in another position. Just two more to go then there is place for a log on the carriage[:-jump2] I just realized that the part from the slide where the log lays should not be there, only the beam which it slides in. But the log will cover that.



The low melt (70degC) solder I use is great as the parts don't get so hot so the paint starts to burn away.

Thanks Martin for the comment!

Thanks for the push Bob!

I don't no if it is wonderful but I have made some progress on the sawmill. After some thinking I'm adding the log haul-up to the sawmill. As the mill is quite small I thought a log haul with chain as the larger mills have would be little to much. I'm now thinking on powering the haul with a steam engine winch from an old Donkey engine instead as that feels more in line with the small business. Below is a picture of how it looks so far. I have also started on the mill walls and on the scenery around the mill and pond.


The donkey engine will be the donor for the steam winch. It will stand on the small platform behind the haul.

I have also been working on the Pullman Palace Drawing Room car "Dayton" from the 1870s. Below are some work in progress photos.

I love the last pic, it has a somewhat supernatural look.

Hi Guys,
my Pullman car "Dayton" build is finished and I thought I'll show you all some pictures of it.

Sorry about the picture quality as I realized that the model had some dust collected on it after handling it during the final assembly. And as always photos are merciless and I need to do some touchup here and there.

Håkan

Isn't she lovely, Oh! so lovely.
Except for the couplers, I couldn't tell the first two pictures apart.

Excellent build and Kit.

On another note, Check out https://youtu.be/Nh1edG1AIdk

After 88 years The Glenbrook is under steam again.
If the hot link doesn't work Just search Youtube under Navada State Railroad Museam.
