The tank looks great. Fits in perfectly.

Thanks Mike and Mike. Appreciate the (+) feedback.

Here is another local critter in for a drink at the tank.



Next up I need to figure a way to pump water up from the Red River to the water-tank. I have been looking at Keith Wiseman's neat steam water pump castings in "O" scale.

That's a great logging picture and I like your recreation of it. One thing it's in Washington not Oregon. The writing on the black and white original says "Clallam Co Wn" Clallam county is on the northern tip of the Olympic Peninsula. It's the Hall and Bishop Logging Company.

LOOKING for some "railroad historical advice."

Here is the backside of the new water tank.



Note the black pipe that will pump water up into the tank. I was wondering how they did it in 1910 when electricity was pretty young and not likely to be found out in "the backwoods." So not likely to have an electric water pump.

This logging outfit is so temporary that I do not think they would have drilled a well.

I was thinking the resourceful loggers would drop a hose or some pipe over the 30' cliffs overlooking the red river and pump up H2O.



What kind of temporary pumps did they use? Steam powered? Do you have any photos or drawings?

Thanks in advance. Doc Tom

Got the water...now we need the fire to = STEAM.

So the boys worked all day cutting and stacking and loading firewood.





Even these little Porter steamers require a lot of care and feeding.



Fortunately, there is a lot of wood around to keep everything moving.

Thanks for looking in. Doc Tom

It is getting hot here in Clarksville Tennessee. To beat the heat I head to the air conditioned train shed out in the back yard. A great way to feel even cooler is to plant some "winter trees" on the micro layout.



And then do em' up in B&W for more of a frosty cold look.





Here is an overall look see at the "Woods" side of the little layout as of today.



Thanks for looking and hope you are staying cool.

Thanks Frank,

Over on the "Rail Camp" side of the mini layout Big Boss Man is showing off his latest creation shoe horned in to the RC Campus.

For the enjoyment of his hard working crew he has put in a "two holer" facility.



While no running water there is kerosene lighting to help with those nighttime and early AM urgencies and emergencies.

Larry started out his LP life as a Woodland Scenics jack hammer operator. With a little work and some paint he was transformed in to Larry the Log Loader, the fireman on the vertical boiler Climax.





The little figure adds a bit of detail to the back end of the ancient climax.



Thanks for looking. Doc Tom
