Hi Reg
 
Congratulations sawmill is looking really good. 
Don’t think I would have had the patience to do all the steps and would have cut corners so result would not have come out so well.
I see you have modified the jack slip so that it now goes into the pond and does not stop in mid-air as the kit originally had.
Well done and I look forward to seeing it set up on the layout.

I still don’t understand why BTS had the two loading docks.
I would have had to modify one at the rear as this should be where the green chain I comes out of the mill,
and the sorted lumber is packaged to go to the storage shed/yard or the planning mill.
Another dock at the mill seems unlikely I think.
Not sure what this would be used for except the occasional replacement bandsaw or drive machinery

I guess it’s now on to the log dump.
I know you will make a better job of it than Model Railroader seems to have done on their Olympia project layout

Best regards

Alan
