Yep.  After a lifetime of working in 1/4" scale, HO seems really tiny.  

The slip jack is now fixed and finished. 
Actually, there is one more "sin" I discovered, but it is really hard to see. 
So it will remain with only me knowing it is there. 

I am really looking forward to getting all these craftsman kits finished
(mill, log dump, engine house, camp cars) that are associated with the logging operation. 
I am enjoying the process, but it really has knocked a hole in my schedule for this layout.

The mill is very close to completion. 
I just need to build the slip jack house and the two loading/unloading platforms.
Progress is on hold for a bit while I deal with some upgrades to the airplane mandated by the FAA. 
That project is sucking up way too much time and money.

Normally, I don't have a construction schedule,
but the original goal for this layout was to get trackwork and basic scenery done within a year,
so I could introduce the grandkids to operations (other than watching trains race around an oval). 
I am WAY behind schedule.

The flip side is that I am excited about having the logging operation a part of the layout.
