    Hi Robin,
    I made one in HO for my Badger Creek layout, should be no problem making it in N-scale.

    Something else.

    In the 80-ies I was very often in UK, and once I could visit an NMRA (?) convention in a church very close to Victor's model shop in London.
    I saw there an excellent logging layout (I do have some bad quality photos). This was the first real pulse to me to go in this direction. Is here anybody, who could participate on that meeting, I would like to know who made that layout.

    Thank you very much.

    :)

    Sorry, can't help you on that as in the 80's I wasn't doing logging layouts. Perhaps someone else might know. It would have been one of the NMRA meets.
