Tom,
You have a very nice corner going on there. The big mill really says "end of the narrow gauge". I also like how you have hidden the places where the tracks come up to the wall. You obviously took the time to think this scene through, and it is developing very nicely.

Getting to "end of track" up along the Gauley River.
Here is the new trestle leading into the woods at a place called Robbins. I based in on the Mann's Creek trestle plans in the book on same.
Also received this little coal tipple in a friendly "swap"....I think I made out the better on the deal! Gives me a second place to pull coal out of the mountains around Nettie, W Va.

Here is the log loading area....and end of track.

Nice shots, Tom. I like the bridge too, and the fine coal tipple.

Tom,

Beautiful work. Looking forward to seeing more of the layout.

Is the yellow critter a kitbash?

Thanks for the comments guys.....

Larry, I'm in the process of setting up a Dec. ops session....you're on the "call board"...I'll let you know asap.

After that, I'd like to hold an ops session every month starting in January.

Jeff, that critter is the AMS On30 model of D&RGW #50, ex Sumpter Valley. It was very reasonably priced (and may still be available on line)and ran well out of the box....I did go ahead and put in a Lenz gold superpack decoder that allows me to "run over 16" of masking tape on both rails" as if I needed that, but the decoder is fantasic because the engine never stalls or even hesitate on less than clean track.

Tom,

I thought the loco looked like DRG&W #50.

Thanks for the updates, I can't wait to see the new areas in context. I still hope to make it down when you have your event in December when ever that is...but the Fridays and Saturday nights are filling up obligation wise. I know my wife would like to come down on Friday, stay at the beach and come home on Sunday...after all I am supposed to be retired..like Geezer.

Tom,

I'm very interested in the Lenz gold superpack- it's as simple as plugging it in right? Where were you able to conceal it in the small critter?

I will definitely need one for some of my small critters.. I am just tired of seeing them stall.

Arthur, the engine has more than enough room for the decoder "under the hood". But, you will probably put the large capacitor in the cab. Painted black and with a crew in place I doubt you will notice it.
Only issue now is that there are no sound decoders that feature the no stall feature (not that I'm aware of any way) so if you want sound you have to install a diesel sound decoder and speaker as well....but again, there is enough room for that too. (this critter is pretty big by On30 critter standards)
