Thanks guys. I forgot to mention that I also changed the tank to individual boards instead of scribed wood. The color is Minwax Golden Oak, with some chalks applied. I'm trying to make the sawmill aera look a little newer. A change from my usual A&I

Nice tank, nice roof, Roland. I suppose there's still some hardware to add to it?

Frederic, There is still more to go. The tank will supply water to the sawmill and also to a Porter that will have switching duties at the mill.

Inspiring work. Good to see how much can be fitted into 16" of magnificent modelled width.

I've been working on the SW sawmill equipment and have finished the live rolls, except for the belt wheel and walk planks. I will add them later.



I'm planning to build all the equipment first then figure out how to make it fit the area I have.

Roland

Well the tank is just perfect. Excellent job.

And the start of the sawmill equipment well what can I say coloring perfect.

The question is are you going to use the SW Mill or do your own??

Roland,

I missed the tank finish, it is only on par with your other work on other words amazing.

How about a picture of the tank on the layout?

I am looking forward to your progress on the saw mill machines.

I am basing the mill on the one Marty Jones built. Mine will have to be compressed some due to a tight fit. The watertank will be part of the mill providing water to the mill and a Porter that will handle switching there. Right now it's just a chunk of styrofoam.
