Hi Doc


I had to EDIT out a sepia logging photo you Posted.

It was marked with the Company Name of a firm that sell art-prints.


It is very important not to Post these company or copyright type images on Freerails.

If you have other logging photos from this source, they shouldn't be Posted in Threads or the Gallery.

In between the prep work and an actual medical mission team to Haiti and the clinical work at the rural health center in Kentucky I have squeezed in some modeling time.

I have completed the pole/Log bents for the rustic wooden trestle over the rivulet feeding into Kit Creek. The scenery is in the dirt layer It will be overlaid with leaves, Shrubs and eventually trees will be planted.





I also spent a few weeks of spare time painting Bachmann on30 log cars for this backwoods operation. They started out looking like this.



And ended up looking like this.




Thanks for looking. All comments welcome.

Thanks Alwin. It was done using acrylic paint, acrylic washes, and an india ink wash. It did  take some time to disassemble the cars and wait for all the multiple layers of paint/washes to dry.......but I like how they turned out.:old dude:

Thanks to Si for the :moose:.

Here's a little more:

Further up the line on the "Woods" side of the mini layout is the log landing of the original Kittom Lumber Company.




Constructed of cut logs it provides a handy storage for the timber heading down line to the log dump.




This is in the first "dirt layer “……..more scenic details to follow.



I am starting research for an early 20th century log loader and rigging for the site. If you have any prototype pictures from 1900– 1920 I would love to take a gander.



Thanks for your interest. Doc Tom

I think that the morphing of the log car is super!

Thanks Herb. Here is a little more progress:

Finally have all the dirt down and bonded to the "woods" side of the mini layout.



Started planting some grass in the dirt....nice product from Silfor. Will later dry brush in some brown variety as this is supposed to be wintertime.



Thanks for looking. Tom

A very warm spring day today with plenty of sunshine. It was time to take the mini layout outside for some pictures.





Here is an overall shot of both sides. This was difficult to do in the work shed as I could not get back far enough to include the whole layout.
Here is the" Woods Side" with the log landing. The first cover of dirt and debris has been applied.




Here is the side that will have the rail camp and the log dump. Scenery has not been started on this side yet.



I think I need to get going on some backdrops the styrofoam blue is really sticking out!
