Thank you all. I really enjoyed building it but I don't think I would want to do it again. Next up I will finish the tables for the edger.

Roland, you make every detail a showpiece! What a fine engine, and one of a kind for sure.

Thanks Verne. I have to admit to being more of a model builder than railroader, although I do engoy running trains.

I finished the feed table except for the legs. The only odd parts are the 2 handles for adjustments They are cut from the little 3 pin plugs that Bachmann puts in the boards where the plugs go for a decoder.

Roland, the feed table looks great. You are the master of recycling and reusing parts; I never would have thought to look at the pins as a possible use for anything.

I was cleaning out some drawers today(my wife made me) and came across a disc with photos of my original Westport layout. The layout was built as a practice to learn about O scale. It is ten feet long and 13 inches wide. The first photo shows how far I got before it was torn down due to a move.

Too Late, we have already seen it.

That was some great modeling there Roland, I really like the trees.

Thank you for sharing. I hope there are more to come. The 2nd from the bottom is my favorite. I love the small bridges and having to peer inbetween the trees to see the train.

Roland,
Great scenery and modeling!

There is a question which keeps nagging at the back of my head, as I want to model something similar (with foreground trees to peer through..): Is there any reason loggers would have left trees of that caliber untouched in the middle of camp?
