Lahnstein, the first exhibition for us of 2013 was a great success. The latest concepts from Marcel and Jacq were revealed as a new simple, back to basics approach.

I have to know me very happy Jacq and Allen.

After visiting the excellent condition, with me left open the question of why are these lovingly inserted figures.

Jacq's Logging Project.

I really suspect that this huge water bottles are to blame for the smooth construction of the layout?

The hammer in the photo had a bigger impact than the bottles  Wink Roll Eyes

Presently the layout is being prepared for the Railex 2013 show in Aylesbury 25-26 May.
Luckily Bernard was able to repair the gears on the driven bogie of the 3 cyl shay.
I am waiting for a new decoder as the wires worked loose due to movement between bogie and decoder.  Angry Undecided
A new servo for a point will be installed this week, the old one stopped working in Goes so the unloading of logs was only possible from one side.
The 3 truck Climax has a new decoder and is under control again, as it sometimes started running at random !  
The Westside Lumber Plymouth Milwaukee will have its first run.

AND a start has been made with the 1:35 Feldbahn project  Grin Grin

It feels good to be back in modeling again.

Just catching up again!

Quite unlike the 2x boards the modelling dork used to move his 20' long 2' diameter logs.

Marc You do have a way with words. It made me smile.

Anyone looking at the historic photographs of the west coast logging and the size of those trees might just wonder how long we have left of the plundering.

Thank you Michael, I have often been told (in my own mind) that I am quite mellifluous and eloquent. (though I believe my wife tends to call it "grating and verbose".)   Grin
