Gentlemen
I need some advice. I am building a logging railroad (Choctaw Lumber Company) in On30,
but using On3 couplers. The layout is based on operations of the Westside Lumber Co.
and the Direks Lumber Co. in Southeast Oklahoma.
Should I post my progress in the Logging Forum or in the On30 forum?
Thanks

Joe, I don't think it really matters which ever you feel more comfortable with. If it was me I would use the Logging forum. Plz remember we like lots of progress shots thats the most important thing. Look forward to seeing your build from the beginning. Pat

Joeb,
Welcome to the forum. I post in both spots but tend to get more help and replies when I post ON30 stuff in the ON30 forum.

Hey Guys
I am starting to mke some progress on the home of the CHOCTAW LUMBER COMPANY.
But first I would like to show you what I had to start with. Below is a picture of our barn
that has been used by my youngest son as a wood working shop for the last 10 or so years plus
storage of all kinds of stuff. All of the stuff that is seen in front of the building is from
inside the barn. The new section on the right is his new home for all he is working on,
and I have what is left almost all to myself. The structure on the left is 16 feet by 24 feet.
I have subdivided the inside into an 7 1/2 feet by 16 for storage which leaves me with a 15
foot 4 inch by 15 foot 6 inch room.







I'll post some pictures of the progress latter

Joe, your images are very large : the image itself occupies only a the top left corner of a big rectangle, the remaining being simply white.
You should use an image processing program to crop them to the right siza.

Joe, what camera do you use. I do use the Nikon program I got with my camera to do a batch resize.
In most photosoftware if you use the crop function it let's the picture frame stay at the original size.
Otherwise search for a online or free resizing program there are plenty of'm...

Hey Guys
I forgot to resize the frame, I did resizr the picture. I have a Cannon Power Shot A495,
10 mega-pixel. It takes as good a picture as the person using it can take.
I will go back and edit my earlier posts, now that I know what I did wrong.

Here is another picture of the inside with the wall going up to seperate the storage area
from the train room.

Well Guys
I said I show some progress pictures so hear they are. The first picture shows the outside
with lowered window so upper level of the layout can go over it and the new 4.0
door to the storage room. The door to the layout is from inside the storage room
helping to keep the layout room cleaner.



The next three show the train room with sheet rock going on the ceiling. The room is now fully insulated.









Did you ever try to hang sheet-rock on the ceiling by yourself, and Im not a carpender.

Track plan latter.
