Thanks fellas. I still have to paint the log tongs a rusty color. I left it shiny and new so you could see it against the brown logs.

I love your idea for the logging tongs Tom. Ingenious idea for your logging tongs, that is a talent in its self, to see something and use it as/for something else. I'm going to remember this idea and give it a go. I love your logging scenery/pictures. Fantastic work!
Here was a short discussion on the hand held tongs; http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=51119

Even if nothing operated this would be wonderful modeling. I’m looking forward to the video.

Thank you again guys. You all are great modelers and getting these positive comments is a real thrill.

Well, it was sunny and mild this January day in 1910 Kentucky. Since it was a day of rest, Sunday, the boys thought they should play and enjoy some “Tom foolery” and some backwoods “Hi- Jinx.” So they fired up the log loader, carefully balanced a log and went for rides up and down. Better than any amusement park ride. A visiting photographer captured the quintessential logging picture for posterity.







As always, thanks for looking.

I'm sure one of those guys started his "Tom foolery" with "hold my beer".

Well, I went ahead and made a video of the steam donkey in action at the log dump.

Hope we like it???
I love it! Your music is a good choice also. Something Model builder Howard Zane would be picking.
Nice scenery work going on there.

Thank you Louis. I appreciate the kind words. I hope to do another video of the log landing/loading on the other side of the mini layout soon.
