I agree. Roots are great in O.
I have a big box full, hopefully I will put them to good use.

Another week of modeling squeezed in to real life. Continuing to work on the log dump scene. More Winter time bushes and roots and vines.



Looks like the loggers have figured out a way to unload the log cars and shove them in to the Red River.



Even sent Simon Lilpeep down on the logs to figure out what to do next.



Thank you for following along.

Simon was never too swift. Fortunately the log car is empty and hopefully some of his buddies will move him along when the next load comes.

Meanwhile down in Haiti the other side of the world HK Porter's offspring are hard at work getting in the sugar cane harvest.This is my other On30 mini layout Petit Neg la" (Haitian Kreyol for The Little Guy).



I frequently have this little mini operational as I work on the Kentucky/Tennessee stick hauler.

Me too. Great folks in overwhelming poverty. Keep going back because of their incredible patience and strong faith.

Thanks, this mini is a study in green. The little logger is a study in browns,grays, and other winter colors. Quite the contrast. Tom

Doc Tom, I have a business customer and I am friends with the family. Their daughter and husband have spent two years in Ireland doing missionary work. Their son has been to Haiti twice doing the same thing. After his first visit I asked him how his experience was. At first he could not speak, upon seeing tears in his eyes, I told him, no need to answer. If going there does not change you, arrange your funeral.

Thanks Ed. I have had a member of our team break down in a modern American super market upon seeing all the selections of food we have and she was thinking about the rural Haitians we serve at our clinic get an egg or some meat once a month.

Winter in the South can see some fairly warm days.And when you are working on the rail road you can even sweat.



Especially so when there is a log train bearing down on your activities.





Thanks for looking. Doc Tom

After some good discussion with fellow logger Mr Bill Nelson,here in Clarksville, and several good folks online I am learning just what size of logs a narrow gauge RR could haul in 1910. It appears on Eastern Lines up to 6-8 feet in diameter. So I cut up some 3 foot diameter specimens that Bill provided and they load nicely on the little narrow 30" gauge logging car.





The little Porter was even able to pull the load and get it in to the Log Dump area before nightfall.



I am learning a lot about the hardiness of early logging RR equipment and can't wait to cut and load a 6 foot diameter log.
