I almost forgot.

When I visited Gilchrist in 2015, I took some photos of The Klamath Northern engine-house.
It could only just fit the big GE 110-Ton lokey, so can't be more than 60' long and has no windows just a door at the rear side.

Attached is a view I took then -
can just see where the door is on the right.

This shows the location of the KNORR engine house, at the end of a spur in the mill.

Alan:

I haven't found a kit that really attracts my attention, yet.  
So some plans would be mighty welcome. 
Those footprints sound doable. 

I have a large supply of styrene shapes and sheet. 
When our local hobby shop closed up I bought them out of their Evergreen supply. 
I used a small amount to build the 1/4" scale station that has shown up on this forum,
leaving a large a large stack for future projects. 

I also have a substantial supply of basswood strips and sheet. 
So I have plenty of materials for scratch building. 

The problem with the Labbe model is that it is mounted on a piece of plywood. 
I am loath to start hacking it up. 
In fact, it is something I just won't do.

Arrangements are starting to come together.  
I was hoping to get some more work done this week,
but the extended period of cold weather has seeped into my basement. 
Typically, the basement stays within a narrow range of comfortable temperatures year around,
but not right now, it has just been too cold for too long. 
I went down there Monday evening and it was just too cold to work.  

Even though the mill looks very complete,
I estimate that it is really about 50% done in terms of time. 
I have about 160 very, very tiny NBW castings to apply to the jack slip bents. 
The jack slip itself needs to be built (and it is pretty complex), then the two docks.  

I am scratching around on how to configure a green chain. 
One of the add-on kits from B.T.S. may work, or not. 
I need to do some more research on that.   

Following that I will start on the log dump.  
I have perused the instructions and it looks pretty easy.
Obviously a lot less involved than the mill.  

Then I will be ready to build the engine house.  
Once those three major components are in hand I can start figuring out the arrangement. 
I will eventually want to add some additional small features,
but those can wait until after I get the track down.

That is an attractive little engine house.
 
Something like that might work well,
though I might like something just a bit larger,
and with some additional character, like windows. 
It ought to have a machine shop, too. 

I think I would go looking for commercially available windows. 
Scratch building windows is very time consuming,
and I really want to get this phase of the layout, in its essentials, done.  
I can spend the next 10 years adding interesting details.

After months of fussing, I finally decided on a course of action for the engine house for the logging operation. 
I ordered the Builders in Scale 2-stall engine house.

I know, the photo is of a single stall. 
But they didn't seem to have a photo of the completed 2-stall on their web site.





I will paint it to match the mill.

Hi Reg

Glad you have sorted out the engine house.
Looks a nice kit.

Hopefully less complicated than the mill !!!

That lean-to to the left of the door, looks like it could be made into a car shop.
Wonder why there is not a photo of the two road version -
guess it will be more fun finding out.

They have some photos of the partially assembled kit for the 2-stall. 

Just not any completed.

Hi Reg

Looking for the kit on the Builders in Scale website, but can't see it.

Alan:

First find the 1-stall.  There is a promotion for the 2-stall and 3-stall that will take you to the 2-stall (or 3-stall) page. 

Or, go to the price list, find kit 621 (if I remember) and click on the link.

Thanks for the info Reg.

Have now found the correct part of the web-site.
Engine house looks good, though not sure about the shape of the doors.
