    • Yes Hopeless, you are pretty much doomed now, you have achieved perfection, what more is there?

      • Outstanding work, Roland! The finish on the wood and metal parts is spot on. I also like how you mounted the cutoff saw, although I'm just a crusty miner and don't know much about cuttin' up them trees...

        • Roland,

          I really like your use of the Golden Oak stain. It gives a color that looks aged (yellowing) yet isn't anywhere near being severely weatherbeat (gray).

          • Thanks again for the comments.

            Verne, We loggers like crusty miners. You use lots of timbers.

            Arthur, My whole layout is gray, I needed a change.

            Started the carriage last night.

                      • Roland, that carriage looks beautiful! Did you use blacken-it?

                        • Thanks Arthur. Yes I used blacken-it. It didn't darken all over so I painted just the untouched spots with black paint, rubbed each piece with steel wool, then Bragdons black chalk.
