I pulled the trigger on the B.T.S. McCabe lumber mill today.  Not sure I can really afford it, but I have liked that kit ever since it first came out.

I got kind of worried it might live up to the "Limited Edition" billing and go out of production.

I ordered the mill and the log dump.  I don't have a big enough area for the complete complex.  Either on the layout or in the bank. 

It will definitely serve as motivation to get the west end into some form of completion, tear up the remaining On30 trackage, and get track laid around to the east end, as that is where the spur for the mill will come off.

Hi Reg
 Pleased you are getting something together on the Henderson Branch lumber mill project. I quite like the BTS mill. It is large enough to require and process enough lumber to make railroad operations worthwhile and the structures have a nice feel about them. I can understand about not having the room for other parts of the series – and I guess few of us do. 
However I would remember the words of John H when I was discussing my mill with him. He said concentrate on the rail facilities on the wet (log handling ) and dry sides – i.e. just build the dump and the shipping shed and, if they go by rail, wood-chip loading. Having the sawmill lets people know what the plant is but you really don’t have to model stuff not on a rail spur. 
As I said I like the BTS kit but have only one reservation. The dump is good and better that I have seen elsewhere but the unloader looks like a grounded Barnhart loader so is not very Washington specific. I would have to change the siding or do some other modifications.
 I know TTSL or Timbertimes ran some articles on unloading engines and log dumps I I will have a look if you want. Also I found a couple of pictures in my files. I think both from John
 The first is the dump at Cathlamet on Crown Zellerbach  operation

This is a Ivan Ergish photo of the overgrown Schafer dump with a Chapman style Unloader  probably made by Washington Iron and Steel
