When you descend into Shelton (the road hugs the side of a hill, sharply downhill to town, you pass a sectioned log about that size, right where his photo was made.
I wonder if it's the exact one in that photo?
It might be a replacement after all these years, sitting outside in that climate?

Ironically, I missed having my WW2 Jeep in the annual Shelton logger's festival parade (going past that sign along the way) this year because I'd just gotten back from the UK the day before!

Hi Lee

I think the tree section as you come down into Shelton is the original in the photo.
I have a recent (2015) from Arcadia on Mason County logging showing this roofed over in 1978 and stating the longevity of the Douglas fir.
Also I remember in 1989 Berwyn Thomas saying it was the same log when we visited Shelton.

Hope you enjoyed your trip to the UK.
Where did you go?

Tried to start some scenery over the last few days BUT its too darn hot in my loft.
May have to wait for the heat wave to finish, but can however still run trains!!!

London, Southampton (to take a cruise into the Med and back) and some trains between those points and then to Paris via the Eurostar.
Spent a few days in a nice (but tiny) hotel along Cromwell drive, and we rode the underground several times.
In May there was that heat wave, we practically melted there and in Paris, as it was very sunny and hot there (which we didn't expect).
We also went to Gibraltar, which is very much UK (though they drive on the right side of the road there).








As for Shelton, if you ever need photos of anything, just let me know as I go there every now and then.

No real progress on my layout due to a number of reasons but hope to get to doing some work on scenery and structures over the next few months.

However I am taking some stock to the NMRA British Region Convention in late October as part of my clubs layout, 
and as this is a 1980’s onwards time frame I could not use my normal lokeys and cars. 
However it is an opportunity to run some of the modern-stock I have acquired and I have been running rolling stock around my "prototypically" rough industrial trackwork. 
If if can deal with that I am sure it should be OK on the day. 

I have realised some of the log cars have arch-bar trucks, outlawed on common carriers by the 1940's, so I am changing these out and also a couple of wheel sets. 
Hopefully all will be working in the next couple of weeks.

For some idea the attached photos show some of these operations.  
The yellow U25B is ex Weyerhaeuser’s Oregon California and Eastern (one of these was the first US diesel I climbed on in 1989) 
which will have some Andrews Forest Products decals added. 
My history says in 1990 AFP acquires OCE from WTCo at Klamath Falls OR. 
In 1995 Andrews completes logging at Bly and MK U25B #7605 is transferred to the Woods RR at Jennis.

Hope you enjoy
Alan

The city is currently refurbishing this attraction.

The new Sierra Pacific mill was officially dedicated in past week or so.  There is lots of lumber going out on the PS&P.

The museum is still pretty much a few fans playing with trains in the weeds out at the old dry sort.  

I sure would like to see it become a going concern, but they desperately need a sugar daddy.
