    I see empty log cars and virgin timber but no lumberjacks. Do you have a labor problem?:)

    Incredible. I can just about smell the pines.
    But we expect nothing less from you, Shamus.
    You sure do set the bar high for us mere mortal modelers.

    Re: Wow!!

    Thanks again friends.
    Hi Drew,
    My trees range from 1'-6" to 2'-6" tall. At one point, they almost come over the hardboard backscene. Have to keep the camera low when I take those photo's.
    cheers

    Paul, I had to do some catching up with several threads, so I missed out on the Logging Line for a while. Now I am once more thrilled by your pictures!

    Your modeling is simply fantastic! Your ground cover, the trees (I love those year rings!), but also the rolling stock and the placing of the LPBs create an extremely high degree of realism. Yours must be one of the few very best layouts existing (as were your earlier H0 layouts before).

    Every picture contains a wealth of information and suggestions for better modeling. Thanks, my friend for sharing those pictures!

    Paul, your Cooncreek and Tumbelweed springs photos are fantastic. I am amazed at how productive you are. I will add a link from my website if I may.
