    Ralph's for fun!

    Shamus, what a fantastic photo essay of logging operations! The equipment, the logs, the figures, the overall scene....amazing!
    Not only do you convey the feel of logging but you've created a museum quality exhibit of how the process really works. I'll bet the loggers among us will be very grateful. I won't be trading in my diesels for shays but I am IMPRESSED!!!

    Takes me back to when I was a kid, as everyone used wood for fire and building. Super great work Paul.

    Very nice Paul,

    A day in the life, wish I was there.

    I really like all the sawdust around the edger, can almost see it flying into the air.

    And I can smell the fresh cut wood........

    Many thanks again, all I have to do now is make the pulley system for the overhead power drives.

    Wow Paul!

    Great photo essay - very useful! In place of a band saw, is it possible to have a circular or reciprocating saw?

    Thanks again.

    Hi shamus.

    Congratulation to your wonderful layout.

    I have a question, can you please tell me where to get those branches to your trees (they are very nice).
    I had a supply earlier from US, but since some time I cannot get them anymore. I will appreciate your help either here in Europe or in US.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi friend,
    I get them from a garden centre here in the UK, but if you send Bill Schaumburg "Editor of Railroad Model Craftsman" an email :-

    He will be able to tell you where he got some from as Bill is publishing an article of mine on Big tree making in May of this year.
