Pictures of the On30 Confederate Logging Company progress. I have all of my cookie cuttin done, and all of my supports finished. There will be a few supports knocked out across the front straight run to accomodate a log jam trestle,
like this:


Here's the track plan. It was very generously designed by my good friend, Roger Bruce. Thanks, Roger.

Wow! Looking great! LOVE the photo the engine on that bridge. Can you imagine trusting the weight of that engine to just those two logs that span the river. Geeesh.

Looks like you've got some pretty steep inclines going - what is your maximum grade. Personally, I really like the steep grades for my logging locos.

The steepest is 8.4% coming up the inner loop onto the mainline on the left in the background in the first picture. The Shay chugs up it with no sweat. I was actually surprised.
