Since some forum members are ready to begin construction of Sierra West's "Twin Mills" sawmill kit, this thread has been started for discussions and photos related to the kit's assembly.

It should be an interesting thread, especially as more members who have the kit reach the point where they are ready to begin construction and join in.

(There are many excellent reference photos on the Sierra West website - http://www.sierrawestscalemodels.com/ I hope Brett doesn't mind that I "stole" one of them. )

I am glad to see this thread started. i think it will get others interested & get the old modeling juices flowing.

Dave Grassing has posted pictures in the FSMpix group. He has 4 pictures posted in the files as well as in the photo section. The sawmill will be the center for his portable layout. He is from the UK. These are some of the first pictures I have seen from a modeler of the sawmill. He has not totally finished it yet, but he is well on his way.

You have to join this group to view the pictures. The link is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FSMpix/files/

Paul

P.S.: Here are the pictures for those who cannot access the FSMpix Forum.

I went to the HOn3 forum & looked at the photos posted by Dave Grassing. They are the same as those above except for this photo of the log pond.

Although I will not be building this kit, I can't wait to see what new modeling techniques I pick up while looking over your shoulders!

I e-mailed Dave Grassing (his photos of the SW Sawmill were posted earlier) & invited him to join us & post photos & comments to this thread. I hope he does because he has several SW structures on his modules. I think his wife actually builds the structures. Maybe she can motivate our wives to join in!

There is also a website that shares some info & photos of his layout. The link is: http://www.members.aol.com/dave4844/index.html

Thanks Paul, Dave has a great website and see he has joined the forum. Welcome Dave.

Brett at SW tells me he is shipping my sawmill kit next week. I took the opportunity to add the works train to the order.

Cheers

Hi, Dave, welcome to RR-L and the finescale threads.

I have my sawmill but I'm not quite ready to start it yet. I may be joining the rest of you later.

NickO, When is the Bilton show? I am back in the UK the end of November through to Christmas and like to attend one or two good shows if I can.

Tom, Let us know when yours arrives. I am very tempted by the water tower as well but may just put a reserve on one for now.

Everyone, this is my first kit of this type so I will need all the help I can get!

Barry,

Bilton is not a show as such,it is the bi-annual gathering of the Slim Gauge Circle.This is ,as you might guess is,a small society of mainly middle aged men talking about American narrow gauge railways.There are about 100 members and the meetings are just a way of keeping in touch and to buy and sell railway stuff.However,it is on November 2nd,so I suspect you will miss it.The only other show I usually attend is Warley in Birmingham and that is at the beginning of December.I wouldn't be surprised if Dave is at that one as well.So if you do want to attend that one maybe we can meet? Only if you want to that is ! I usually go to Warley to stock up on modelling surplies.
