Here is my jill poke made out brass tubing. 

Please excuse my messing soldering. 
Everything needs a good filing and clean up.










Here is the jill poke installed on a temporary setup. 
The only thing needed is some linkage underneath to move it 90 degrees.

Initial testing shows that it works. 
I have some 3/4" dowel and I think that will work better for logs and for unloading.

Should look better once it gets cleaned up,
and hit with some camouflage black paint and some rust and weathering.

Now that I have final measurements I can go ahead and finish laying track,
(24" narrow narrow gauge) for the log dump,
along with the dual gauge (24" and 42") trackage to the end of the yard.

I made some logs out 3/4" dowel and they work better than the smaller logs. 

Looks better too I think.
