Sounds great! I remember John Henderson, a great author and logging historian. A nice tribute indeed. As for a logger, there are many old, steam powered logging lines being built these days, most are narrow gauge. And while I dearly love narrow gauge and logging (even though I build mining lines), I have seen few "modern" loggers in standard gauge. You could have GP's and the like and maybe an old teakettle near the enginehouse. Flex track & switches? Sounds fine by me. Easy to build kit structures-something the kids could really get into.
One of my best friends forsook (?) modeling a 2 footer mining line to build a modern layout with flex and kits and his grandkids love it (as does he).
Have fun and when the main is down, you & the kids run the wheels off. There's the fun of this hobby!

Woodie
