Nice video of a steam saw mill, including some shots of the mill pond: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zAvurSjBVW8

Thanks Dave, that was a fantastic video! Great to see a real sawmill also using a winch to bring up the logs.

Greg the day is coming closer and closer. It is like a toothache and soon I can't postpone any longer

It is getting nearer and nearer to the epoxy flood. Tonight I making the last scenery adjustments to the area with some added greenery. I placed some trees around the mill just to see how it looks without gluing them down. It is not logical to have the trees as they probably would have been logged but they look good I think.
I have some stuff to do yet. One of them is to add a jill poke much thanks to Bob (Thanks!) who had a spare one I could buy. It is in the mail right now crossing the pond. The Atlantic not my pond

To be continued.........

Håkan

Here are some pictures. Does the scenery look strange its that its still wet from applying matte medium.

Håkan;

I think it looks great! Really impressive.

Yes, I agree the trees right at the mill sight would have been the first to go, and probably would have been used in the construction of the mill buildings, etc, itself. Stumps would be a nice touch though. Also, consider setting tables around the stumps, as the millworkers would use them for breaks, lunch, etc.

I am sure it is in your plans, but a heavy bumper (probably out of wood, filled with dirt) at the end of your loading track to prevent cars from drifting off into the mill pond. Of course, if you had a car that you built, but it got messed up, and you didn't want to repair/rebuild it, you could have it submerged IN the pond, as a wreck, that then led to the building of the buffer.

Håkan, Your sawmill scene has been giving me a number of ideas. My layout eventually will also have a small sawmill, no pond, close against the side of a mountain(hill). there are also a couple pine trees still standing nearby, despite the logic that they would likely be gone. What are the over all dimensions of the sawmill structure (not counting the log hauler).

Thanks Bob, Carl, Horse and Bill!

Horse, thanks for reminding me. I had the bumper on the list but forgot it while ballasting. Nevertheless it can be mounted afterward. On the trees I think I have to keep them. The area looks so barren without them. Like the lake at the gates of Moria in LOTR

Carl today I poured my small stream below the dam. Most of it ended on the floor. I thought I had sealed everything but boy was I mistaken. The epoxy sure finds the smallest crack. It was only a small amount of epoxy so it was of no economic consequence. I hope the epoxy fills the crack so I next time can pour without leaks.

Bill the mill is approx. 4x11 inches excluding the log haul.

Funny how liquids always find the only leaks you missed.

I've been trying to think of something to say but all the superlatives have been used.

Looking forward to pictures of the big pour.

Mike
