    Shamus, what a fantastic photo essay of logging operations! The equipment, the logs, the figures, the overall scene....amazing!
    Not only do you convey the feel of logging but you've created a museum quality exhibit of how the process really works. I'll bet the loggers among us will be very grateful. I won't be trading in my diesels for shays but I am IMPRESSED!!!

    FANTABULUS

    Takes me back to when I was a kid, as everyone used wood for fire and building. Super great work Paul.

    WOW

    Very nice Paul,

    A day in the life, wish I was there.

    I really like all the sawdust around the edger, can almost see it flying into the air.

    And I can smell the fresh cut wood........

    Wow Paul!

    Great photo essay - very useful! In place of a band saw, is it possible to have a circular or reciprocating saw?

    Thanks again.

    Hi shamus.

    Congratulation to your wonderful layout.

    I have a question, can you please tell me where to get those branches to your trees (they are very nice).
    I had a supply earlier from US, but since some time I cannot get them anymore. I will appreciate your help either here in Europe or in US.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi friend,
    I get them from a garden centre here in the UK, but if you send Bill Schaumburg "Editor of Railroad Model Craftsman" an email :-

    bills@rrmodelcraftsman.com

    He will be able to tell you where he got some from as Bill is publishing an article of mine on Big tree making in May of this year.
    Cheers
