My name is Benny Rhoads, I live in Orange, Texas.  I am getting back into model
railroading after being away for about 30 years.  I have joined a local club, and
have spent time working on the club layout.  I am addicted to the early logging
industry in Pennsylvania, from the 1880's to around 1940.  I have a very extensive
library dealing with early Pennsylvania history and especially with the Logging
and lumber industry.  Even though I live in Texas now, I still own property in
Northwestern PA.  The property I own was once part of the Teddy Collins empire.
I will be running HO gauge, and HOn3  gauge with some of he track  having
dual rail laid for both gauges.  I hope to gain new information from this web site.

Railroad logging is an interesting industry no matter when or where it happened, but you seem to have fixed upon it's "glory days." It was never the same after steam lost favor.

There are a LOT of folks here that have expertise in just about anything in model railroading or model building in general. If you need to know something, just ask and someone with the answer is on here. And if you have the answer to someone else's question be sure to add your knowledge.

Have fun!

Hi Woody...
I won't have to make any trees, they have all been harvested and loaded on the cars. What is not on the cars is in the log pond. All I have to make is slash piles. Have you ever seen a logging layout with slash piles? Most I have seen have cleaned logs and no slash piles. Where did they go? Just a thought.
