    This is the pump house. The lower half of the stone wall will be in the pond.
    The old truck is for detail when it is put on the N-trak module. One more kit to go, the power House.
    All the sawmill kit are from Republic Locomotive Works. They also have these kit in HO,S, and O.

    This Sawmill has to take up a large "tract of real estate". I would very much like to see this on an N-trak module. My small ( 287' X 84' )(21.5" X 6.25") Drydock' and the surrounding concrete apron with access track, and cranes, took up a full quarter of the 2' X 4' module, and left little space for the building ways.

    I’ve been looking at your other threads in this forum as well, & this is some really fine modeling Willy!

    I’m always watching for good examples of sawmills, since eventually, I’ll be needing one for my HO layout (under construction)
    I’m going to have to scratchbuild mine, compressing it into the space that I have…
    It will probably end up being a complex of smaller buildings rather than one large structure…
