    Hi Gang, just thought I would see what was going on and post a photo of what I have been doing for the last couple of months.
    All structures and machinery are scratchbuilt, the only part I didn't make was the boiler which Jon Monon made for me out of brass tube. Lots more to do. This is the first time I haven't started on the scenery first. Got more live rolls to make plus a cutoff saw to complete the inside of the sawmill.
    Cheers all.

    Excellent detail Shamus my friend. It must be a real delight working in this larger scale.

    Fantastic work, friend! Boiler sure looks good with paint and the plumbing and gadgets in place. I'd forgotten all about it until you mentioned it. Did you replace the spark arrester? Good to see your fine craftsmanship coming to life once again!

    Beautiful stuff, Shamus...... But, of course!
    How are you enjoying working in 1/4 inch scale compared to HO?
    I'm happy you're feeling well enough to be back at it.

    Been more than just a little concerned, good to see you posting again! The saw mill looks great !
    Take it slow and easy, maybe we'll deal with our anticipation by getting more of our own work done!:D :D
    FYI "logging line addicts" the #28 issue of Timber Times, www.timbertimes.com, has some excellent information for people like me who are still new to logging.

    Shamus ,nice to see that your nibble fingers are still at work and producing such high quality work. Where do you get most of your info? My scene revolves more around a lumber storage yard but probably could use some of the info.Thanks

    Pete, I can't seem to get that link to work could you be missing a letter or something???

    Sorry about that, I didn't include that as a link, rather as, just information.

    I could park all my computer skills in the eye of a needle, and still have room to run a C&O H8 through it.:D

    Hi All,
    Thanks for the kind comments, yes I am feeling alot better now, at least better than the last couple of months. New breathing stuff and pills by the dozen. Can't complain really, had a hell of a good life, what with 30 + years in Show Business, then a Professional Photographer coupled with Model Railroading what else could you ask for. All self employed no body to tell me what to do, wonderful. Played Golf when I wanted Hehe.

    Cheers , be back again later on.
    Shamus

    Hi, Paul,

    Somehow I missed this thread over the weekend.:confused: Anyway, it's good to see you're getting back on your feet and are back to work on your new layout.

    Very nice work on the enginehouse and the mill. :cool:

    Hey Paul,
    Great to hear you're feeling better. It makes me feel better, too! The layout is looking good. I have been busy bashing G gauge equipment for my garden RR which is mining and looging themed, so I look forward to your pics for info and inspiration. Thanks for what you have given us all and continued good health my friend:D
