Hello everyone!
I'm new to this forum so I thought I would post a few pics of my logging layout which is under construction. It will be/is The Splinter Creek Lumber Company.

Here is the sawmill/log pond area. The sawmill is represented by the white cards. Where the track, which is only pinned for referance, nears the pond on the right is where the log dump will be.



This is the loggers camp area on the second level at the end of the first switchback.


This is the area as a whole. You are looking at my West wall, the logging area will be on my North wall, extending to the right and down from the end of the tracks there.





These photos are a week or two old, but I have not had a lot of time to add to it. I have started to lay some track but, no new pics as of right now. Maybe I will get a few in this evening.

Cheers to you!

Dave,
Very nice and it looks like you know exactly what you want from your layout.
I definitely would like to see more when you get a chance to take more pictures.

Dave,

The layout is looking good. Nice benchwork. Are you scratchbuilding your sawmill or will you build from a kit? Keep us posted on your progress with lots of pictures. Great work...

From scratch.
In fact I have one built. It was my first try at scratch building and I'm kinda proud of the results considering that.
I may build another a little smaller. I will wait and see on that. Here are some pics of it.

First 2 buildings



This is the third.



The other end.


This is the back side. You can just see the log carriage I scratched.


Here's a close up of the carriage.

Dave,

Great bench work. The sawmill looks really interesting. I'm new to this to and I'm looking for all the help I can get. I have the Band-Saw and the Log Carriage from Western Scale Models, and trying to figure out what kind of mill it will fit, I do have plans and trying to tie them together .
