    Sweet pic! I sure hope nobody stumples and falls coming in or they'll be impaled! :D :D :D

    I see bambi in the back, my neighbor just brought over two gigantic deer sausages last night.

    I see empty log cars and virgin timber but no lumberjacks. Do you have a labor problem?:)

    Incredible. I can just about smell the pines.
    But we expect nothing less from you, Shamus.
    You sure do set the bar high for us mere mortal modelers.

    Stunning as usual Paul.

    Beautiful scenery.

    How tall do those tree's range from?

  13. Paul, your trees are beautifully done. The whole scene is simply stunning. :thumb: :thumb:

    Re: Wow!!

    Thanks again friends.
    Hi Drew,
    My trees range from 1'-6" to 2'-6" tall. At one point, they almost come over the hardboard backscene. Have to keep the camera low when I take those photo's.

    Paul, I had to do some catching up with several threads, so I missed out on the Logging Line for a while. Now I am once more thrilled by your pictures!

    Your modeling is simply fantastic! Your ground cover, the trees (I love those year rings!), but also the rolling stock and the placing of the LPBs create an extremely high degree of realism. Yours must be one of the few very best layouts existing (as were your earlier H0 layouts before).

    Every picture contains a wealth of information and suggestions for better modeling. Thanks, my friend for sharing those pictures!
