    Good equipment, good grub, and a good place to sleep. You've taken all the excuses away from the LPB's now Robbin, they are just going to get at it and do their jobs!

    Fantastic work!

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I am sure pleased I added a logging area to my layout. It has been fun so far and I am sure it will continue to be so. Just new and different for me.

    I'm not into logging either, but they sure looks nice, and tiny, it's amazing the amount of details you have been able to put into something that is not much bigger than a finger. Great.

    Hiya Robin,
    They are bad enough to make in H0 with the valve gear, those N-scale ones are terriffffffic, well done.
