    Wow that looks great. i am working on building my own sawmill in HO but i think i could probably put it inside that one 3 times even though it is a larger scale.

    Notes on sawmill

    There is over 1,600 pieces to the mill and over 125 metal castings.
    The Planning Shed is made to butt up against the mill, in fact you can see part of the Planning Shed tramway on the back side of my mill.

    Thank you for the link Bill. They have a LOT of very nice kits. Maybe I can mortgage my house to get all that I want. LOL

    Nicely built kit!
    This Saw Mill kit is a nice product. I know what it is to design a kit like that, and you've done it justice with this build.

    I only purchased 5 of the kits for my 48"x30" Ntrak module. All of the kits would have made a nice scene, but it was not in my plans.

    Thank you
