    The old run down mill has seen its days. The new mill is the McCabe complex witch will be named J.R. Booth Lumbering Co. Mr Booth was a lumber baron in the Ottawa Valley Canada.

    Awesome work. I to was wondering if you had any good pictures of a prototype saw and carriage. I have been wanting to build one for a while.

    The sawmill parts came from Republic Locomotive Works, Kit # 2285, scale Nn3. The kit has metal and wood parts and you have to assemble them.:oops:
    It took me 4 tries to get the rip saw together.
    Thanks for the kind works.

    If you go to google under images and type sawmill carriage, you may find some.

    Thank you
