It is amazing what a little incentive does for a modeler. Not too long ago I had the opportunity to purchase a shay at an extremely great price through a hobby shop that I use. The agreement that my great wife and I had at the time was that in purchasing the shay, it would have to stay in the box in the closet until the logging extention, a 6 x 5 "L" , off the main 10 x 6 layout, had the benchwork up and some track down, and the trackwork finished with some scenery done on the main layout. Well yesterday, after finishing the track and some scenery on the main part of the layout, I got the benchwork up, the track and building plans put on the layout. All I have to do now is put some track down, ties are already down as of this morning and out will come the shay !!! Now my problem. Where does one find plans of a sawmill, log unloading area, and log loading area. I have gone to the railroad magazine index system and found numerous articles where modelers have done great jobs at building these things, with some specticular pictures, but no plans. I have most MR & MRC mags from 1974 onwards but seem to find most plans were printed prior to the dates that I have. I have also checked with a friend who has many Narrow Guage Gazette mags also, same thing great article and pictures but no plans. I guess that I could scratchbuild the log loading and unloading from the pictures but would be much easier with plans for a saw mill. I only require a small backwoodsy type, not a big one. I have e mailed a few of the companies that produce kits and they will not sell me any of their plans. I am modeling in HO and do a lot of scratchbuilding. Does anyone have any suggestions??? Many thanks to those who reply.. Ron..
