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.
