After seeing Bob and Tom's work, it seem's like there may be a few more that logging afficiandos might enjoy. I encourage ya'll to submit your mill pix to this thread. I'm always looking for inspiration.

I'll start with a couple shots of an O scale mill I'm building for a friend. The shape of the building is based on all of the Sierra west machinery (ex CHB) that presently available, including the boiler and mill engine.

View from the pond up the log haul


The mill sans roofs. Because the machinery is set up very linear, the mill is 30 inches long, 12 inches wide (the boiler room adds 4" to one side and the office/filing room adds 3" to the other.) The entire module is 30" x 72".


Looking in the end (where the lumber comes out)next to the Gang Rip unit. The belt drive overhead was fun to figure out, but it was worth the work.

This project has been underway for a while. My friend will be laying the track and scenicing, but I'll try to take some more pix if there is any interest. I really want to see what else you readers are doing.

Chris, I haven't built a mill yet, but I did want to tell you how much I like yours. Very nice. The last picture is very realistic (except for the family car in the backround).

This proves a point that I made on another thread about how well I pay attention ... I didn't see the car until I read your comment!

Good looking model to be sure.

Cris,

Very nice mill. I like the diagonal flooring in the last picture. I still have SW Deer Creek Twin Mills on the build shelf. Maybe one day...


Here's a kitbash of WS Plank & Tie Mill I did for Challenge I a couple of years ago.

Jim, I was wondering if you'd post a photo or two of your tie and plank mill. Good to see it again.

Like Jim, I have the Sierra West Twin Mills sitting on my "to do" shelf. But that's as close as I've gotten to having a mill. I keep thinking I need to start it because I ain't gettin' any younger.

That's some great detailing, Chris! The machinery looks nicely done, but I also like the looks of the plank flooring in the last photo.

Mike,

I think we're running out of excuses not to build the twin mills. I know I am. I'm comfortable now with Brett's kits. I have one more kit to build after Quincy's and then I'm starting on the mill. Probably January 06.
