The "island" is growing! Made some real progress this week on my logging "island" expansion. A friend helped me get the lighting up (single flouresent fixtures for $3 at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, tubes for $.50!!!!) I also got moving on the main yard benchwork and I am playing around with various ideas. The latest includes a medium size saw mill in the background disappearing into the backdrop, small town on the inlet, and a service facility with a large engine house, shop area ala Chuck Doan, water tank, oil,etc. and misc. sheds and lots of exterior detail. Behind the yard on a low hill backed with trees, will be logging cabins, cook house, etc. Next up is to get the backdrop in and a valance to cover the lights. Those lunkers from the yarding site will be showing up in no time! My dog Willie likes the progress it also! He is a great foot warmer while I am sketching ideas. Scott

Hi Scott,
I am excited to see that saw mill, I have moved my saw mill to become a saw mill flat with track running underneath the haul too. Are the drawings based on a building? or ? Mine will be about 3 or 4 inches deep at most so it will be a detailed flat, hauling logs out of the pond.

Scott, so is a triple decker in the future? I can see you running out of room on the lower one pretty quick.

Scott, really like the mill mock up....it "screams" log mill in just 9" of depth.

Les, it I remember correctly, Bob Brown's mill scene is very similar and I believe he modeled the Mich-Cal mill at Camino.

Tom,
Yeah I have seen several depictions thru the years, but would like to have at least a frontal diagram of the building to build to. The haul will be interesting with locos traveling under it.

The partial saw mill idea is inspired by an article I saw in an old Fine Scale Modeler (Logging and Mining Issue - by McKenney???), and the Sundance Central (F-scale) approach to their 1/2 saw mill in their latest layout expansion. Being that my mill is tucked in the back corner under the top level of the layout I think I can blend it into the backdrop effectively, especially if I place a lot of up front detail. Scott

The new benchwork, back drop, etc. is moving along. However, it is the most boring part of the hobby to me. Thus, easily distracted with real modeling endeavors. During a few nights over the past couple of weeks I turned my attention to scratch building some camp cars (that can fit over a Bachman flat car) to be used in the rear seen area of my rail road camp. I also dug out an old unfinished On3 wood caboose I have had in a box for at least 20-years and decided to make it into some kind of storage shed. This was a fun little model an includes lighting. I expect to use it up front near the future engine service area. Scott

I really like the camp car and storage unit. I had the same idea and recently ordered a suitable caboose for just such a project.

Now I know what to do when I have built too many things and need more space...put in another deck.
