    Hi Paul , very nice scene as usual .:D
    One question though , are the logs in the forground surrounded by water or is this yet to be done or maybe i am looking at it wrong?:confused:

    Also on another note , is Badger Creek gone (dismantled) or is Red Fox a part of Badger Creek and both remain ?

    Cheers

    Ian :p

    The logs were cut in half and inserted into the pond before water (Yacht Varnish) was put in.

    Badger Creek no longer exists, Red Fox is a new layout. Still got the Badger Creek website along with Red Fox website. So nothing is lost.

    There's only one way you could have made so much progress in so short a time!
    Isn't it time to get some sleep?? :D :D :D

    If I may ask, how much of the old Badger Creek is being recycled in the Red Fox?

    That Climax looks good!

    Hi Pete, Thanks friend, Now, - none of the old Badger was kept, only the trees.:D and some undergrowth I salvaged.

    As for the climax, it was scratchbuilt onto a shay chassis.

    I'll bet it is the group of Gandy-dancers that Jon put out of business that have crossed the pond and found employment at Shamus's layout:D :D :D

    Log driver's waltz

    Shamus, are you familiar with the song Log Driver's Waltz ?
    It's a Canadian song, by Wade Hemsworth. There's a National Film Board (Canada) cartoon of it.
    Theme is that the log driver learns to step lightly and "the log driver's waltz pleases girls completely." Catchy tune too.
