This is part III of this ongoing saga of a backwoods logging outfit set along the border of Kentucky and Tennessee in 1910.

Please do not go looking for part one and two as they were vaporized when Photo Bucket became ransomeware and hijacked all my pictures. I have seen the light and will now post directly to this site .


Here is a shot of the hard-working crew getting ready to clear underbrush and downfall near the log camp to prevent a forest fire. You can tell who's management and who's going to do all that work.



I'm looking forward to continuing the dialogue in this most fascinating of hobbies.

Doc Tom:old dude:

The boys have repeatedly told Jethro no matter how strong he is, he cannot unload a log car with hand tools. Steam powered tools and cables are needed to move these heavy logs. Kittom Lumber keeps him on the payroll as he means well and is kin to one of the bosses.

This is a mini layout constructed of Blue Styrofoam. To make it look larger I used a divider between two scenes of the Railroad. To connect the two scenes I have placed a window in the scenery divider in the center.



This "Window" was difficult to conceal in the scenery theme of a backwoods  logging railroad. This backwoods outfit is so broke they could not afford any type of tunnel. To hide the window between the scenes I had to use foliage and make a tree tunnel. Here's what it looks like:







The scenes depict the road crew laying and spiking rail late into the evening.

The individual trees had to be carefully placed and "pruned" to avoid fouling the engines and rollingstock.

Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

Dr Tom & all,

Who said you you can't move logs with hand tools?? Check out some muscle power from Down Under in action at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfdZFAjxiKM :bg:

Question - How do you know you have a good new "brakie" on the train??

Answer - He's still alive at crib time.  :P

Yes, I had forgotten those hand cranked devices used in Australia. Pretty ingenious. I do not think I have seen them in use in the USA in any older prototype pictures.:old dude:

What are they called??

Loved the video.:2t:Thanks for sharing.

Doc Tom
