Outstanding work, Roland! The finish on the wood and metal parts is spot on. I also like how you mounted the cutoff saw, although I'm just a crusty miner and don't know much about cuttin' up them trees...

Roland,

I really like your use of the Golden Oak stain. It gives a color that looks aged (yellowing) yet isn't anywhere near being severely weatherbeat (gray).

Thanks again for the comments.

Verne, We loggers like crusty miners. You use lots of timbers.

Arthur, My whole layout is gray, I needed a change.

Started the carriage last night.

Thanks Arthur. Yes I used blacken-it. It didn't darken all over so I painted just the untouched spots with black paint, rubbed each piece with steel wool, then Bragdons black chalk.
