    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Interesting site with some promising links that I will check out when I get back to high-speed (e.g. the video link)

    Andrew thanks a lot for the GREAT link!! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    I downloaded all the video clips, and read the online story of Fossmill - it was fascinating and very informative.

    For anyone thinking of doing a logging layout set in the early 1900s this site is a MUST SEE!!!! After reading the article and watching the video clips I kinda wish I were doing something similar - a 1920s logging operation, with shays and an interchange with the CPR, set in the bush in winter.
    Horses dragging logs along the skidway, the "hot pond", the sawmill, lumberyard - and lots of trees, hills and snow. The company store, the dorm for the lumberjacks - man! it doesn't get much better than that.

    What a great find Andrew!! Thanks for sharing it with us.
