Hakan,

Backtracking to your British Export of 24th December, I may have found a glimpse of a "prototype". And it borders on California...

(from Southern Methodist University's Digital Collection)

Actually the Old Mexico images are interesting on that site:
Double-Headed Mason Bogies...
Narrow-Gauge Delights (FC Interoceanico was 3')
And lots and lots and lots of very lovely-looking Fairlies (sorry, did someone mention Fairlies?) on some very-spindly looking viaducts...

Best wishes and eagerly awaiting your next update.

Håkan always enjoy catching up in your thread. I really like the look of the old mining loco. Back in the early 90's I worked underground in a gold mine and first job I had was running a tram line and the engines on each end of the train were battery operated, you bring back some nice memories.

Thank you Matt, that was some great links! The loco pulling the Raymond special looks similar to my model with those slanted cylinders. I can't discern what the wheel arrangement is but it could be a 4-4-0. It looks quite strange with that large cowcatcher in the front. Just the look I'm after.

I happy you are passing by Linn and that the project brought back some fond memories. The project is a put little on ice at the moment as I have to finish some other projects. I also have got a flu which I recuperating from so there has not been any modeling the last week

Hakan,
I have been hiding in the weeds over here and read that you're "entertaining" a flu virus.
I think that I can speak for myself as well as many others when I say, "I hope you're feeling better soon".
Kind Regards,
Greg R.

Thanks Greg, I'm feeling much better. It is this time a year in Sweden when people here are the most sick.

Thank you very much Bob! And thank you for your kind words on the layout.

I must say that I was deeply honored to have a building on Greg's fantastic Magoun Pier named after me.

I hope to have something to post this weekend. I have been plastering and painting mountains so much by now that I have nearly hit rock bottom

But mudding* is fun



* what professional drywall installers call tapping drywall over here. And what I spent the morning doing.

Hmm...sounds a bit muddled.

I hope it works out great with the mudding!

Happy Easter!

Ugh! I think I'd rather spend a day at the dentist!

hakan (sorry, i don't know how to make the thingie above the a), you do fantastic work. you're really giving troels a run for his money. like the coast line rr, i keep going to this thread for inspiration, learning, and just because i enjoy your pics so much. great layout in all regards.

Thanks Håkan, My muddin' is working out but Kevin is right, the sanding does kill you.
And Dave, don't be such a stick in the mud. Ever boy likes to play in the mud

Wife and I both learned how to do wallboard taping, but not how to do it well! I'll still consider a day at the dentist.

i hired a buddy to drywall and tape my garage (a couple of houses ago) and he showed up with a tool drywallers call the "bazooka". he had my garage fully mudded in less than an hour. sanded it, and did another coat. sanded it, and was out the door within 4 hours. had i done it myself i'd probably still be working on it.

Thanks Kevin for the kind words!
I agree sometimes its better hiring the job. I remember some wallpapering a couple of years ago. 3 rooms with mudding took the guy we hired one and a half day. It probably would have taken me weeks

Now over to something completely different.....
I have started on a new sawmill kit. Its a Keystone Danby kit that I will make some changes to so it fits a location on the layout at a pond. I'll make a log haul that transports the logs up from the pond. I have started on the foundation but stopped as I need to assemble and paint all the castings. What I'm wondering is how the carriage and machinery was painted?
I have googled on sawmill pictures but everything I have found is old, worn and rusty. My guess is that the machinery, carriage etc came painted from the manufacturer. I want the equipment moderately worn as the mill just have a couple of years on it and the equipment was bought new.

I also can't find any good information on the log haul. Are there any manufacturers out there that makes log haul parts in HO?

Thanks,
Håkan
