Lennart,

This is the dark side. Stranger things have happened than tall trees left untouched. My 2 cents is that those tall trees provide shade for the loggers' shacks which can get pretty hot in the summer.

I responded to this once but have no idea where it went. I'll try again.

Thank you all for the comments. The layout was just built for learning. It is now long gone (along with the wallpaper). I did not give a lot of thought to the placement of the trees. I just went for looks.

Arthur. The twin bridge section is the only thing I saved. It is on the new layout but needs a bit of repair.

Thanks Frederic.

I finished the second table.


Here is a photo of both tables and the engine. Now to actually build the edger. Need to study my photos Question, should the steam pipe to the engine run below the floor or above attached to the roof beams? I can't see where it would make a difference.

Excellent work.

I think coming in from the top. I guess depending where the pipe comes out of the boiler.

Roland, thanks for pics of your first layout, very nice. I like the tall trees bracketing the camp buildings, they are an effective scenic element to set the mood.

Your sawmill is really coming together beautifully. Outstanding work on the machinery!

I'd think the steam pipe should be on the bottom as the belt drive system would be in the rafters. Not sure, steam pipes overhead seems like a remedy for scalding. I think your blocks on the base of your engine need to be thicker. The flywheel is very close to the floor. Perhaps another two larger blocks. Otherwise all looks superb as usual!

Roland,

Another contest-worthy model is shaping up. Looks very good!

In looking at pictures of steam-powered sawmills, I don't recall any photos showing pipes going through the rafters or ceiling. What I've seen is that pipes go through above the floor and below the ceiling in various ways, usually by the shortest distance possible. I don't think I've seen any go under the floor and neither would I think that it would be feasible, as you'd have to tear up the floor if a pipe breaks or leaks.

Thank you all for the comments and advice.
Philip, I will jack up the engine before I glue it down.
Arthur, Never thought about having to tear up the floor. The pipe will go up and I will try to represent some form of insulation around it so nobody gets burned.

That layout really looked good. Nice looking trees and the ground cover looked like a lot of logs had been moved over the layout.

Philip, Thanks for the video link. Really enjoyed it, but wonder what happened to the dogs tail.

Thanks Joe.
