Hi Doc Tom,

In this Forestry of NSW (State Government department that looked after forestry) the jacks are called "Maori" jacks because they came from NZ. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4EWVB6Ud8k dubbed with sound and the original better quality silent version at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8qGtAvNGO4 

But I've also heard them called "Trewhella jacks" after an Aussie foundry that made similar jacks.  See https://bih.federation.edu.au/index.php/Trewhella_Foundry and  http://handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/138378" TARGET="_blank"> [url=http://handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/138378]http://handle.slv.vic.gov.au/10381/138378 The last link is to a pdf of an early Trewhella catalogue. The jacks are towards the rear of this document.

The following link might take you to a photo of one of the jacks in use in NZ c1900

The jacks in the video feeds look like they have their handles permanently attached, so the jacks may be of a later build or from a NZ outfit like A.G Price (who also made some "unusual" logging locos.

In the first video at 5:00. What's that, a single axle disconnected?

There has been a lot of wind and rain here in Tennessee. This has resulted in a very good harvest of twigs. I pick them up on my morning walks and by nighttime they are fleshing out the winter forest I am trying to model.



Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

I think it would be a good idea to bake any items brought from the great outdoors ASAP. Wildlife, ya know...

Thank you. In researching a winter themed RR I read that it could be colorful with a lot of browns, reds, and grays. All natural tree armatures are helping with those colors.  Tom

I have always liked this photo of a log landing in Oregon about 1925. This is a “colorized” version and for the life of me I have had a hard time locating  the original B&W on the net. I have seen it before but cannot recall where.



Anyways ,thought I would give a shot at a rough approximation of the action portrayed in the prototype scene. I realize that I have a Stearns Heisler (Climax in the original)posing up front and my little logging people do not appear quite as tired as the workers in the colorized picture.




Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

Hi Doc. :wave:



Great photos ! :bg:



The vintage colourized & your colour and B&W look like the real deal.

Nice logs you got Doc.

They seem to have the right looking bark & feel to them.


I have my eyes on some Lime trees bordering my garden here.

They grow yearly long & straight pieces off the tops, could be good trestle timber.


I love your ground cover Doc.
