Oh Robin, it's just great that you, our cardboard wizard, rides again! :thumb:

Nn3 logging, you say? It's getting always smaller and smaller! Wow - but it's just about the right thing for such a talented modeller like you. The enginehouse looks already really great. :cool:

And like Frank [DeaconF] I am wondering about the precision of your non-warped cardboard planks. Truly outstanding! When I try, perhaps four out of five look like corkscrews... :oops:

Its good to see your progress Mikey.
Here is the last photo of mine showing smoke jacks installed.
They look too big but on the drawings and photos I have the smoke jacks are 5ft 6in in diameter so that is what I have done .

Hi Robin,

I am putting together an HO scale "backwoods engine house" kit that also happens to be 65 feet long. The reason the smoke jacks (and possibly other details) look so huge is becasue it is a small shed. 65' is long enough (just) for a Shay or Climax, but anything bigger than a 2-6-0 with a short tender is pushing it!

Nice work, by the way. The unfinished roof with the "flakes" showing reminds me of barns with advertising painted on the roof!

For those of you that missed this story, Robin decided to build this Really Cool Shed, in Georgetown, Ontario,Canada, in Nn3: (Top Picture)

I decided to follow his directions, here in PA, and see if I could copy his great work........ IN G !!! :eek: 1:20.3 to be exact........ Just big enough or the Bachman Climax locomotive....... (Bottom Picture)

:thumb: It's really great to see two models come together in two different scales at the same time. That has almost got to be a model railroading first! Keep up the great work, and please keep posting!

Rebel, I have tried cutting pine into N scale wood but found that I would need one of those $800 band saws to do it properly. I have a Delta 8inch band saw that would be good for O or G scale but find the blade tends to wander a bit, even though I have got the tension as close as I can. Cardboard is just so much easier to work with.
Thanks for all the encourgement that you folks give us here at the GAUGE
