    • Thanks for posting that link John. His name is Loek (don't know his last name) and goes under the username Loeksblues on the other site. He's been doing build logs there for quite a while, you can search there on his name and see other project logs. It's always amazing to see what he does. Here's his current project,

    • The Hague, Netherlands.

       It is a site worth bookmarking.  Even if you, like me, are not up to his speed at least their are great ideas and a fascinating place just to view.

    • He is from the Netherlands I believe (at least it says similar under the train bottom right of his site.......)

      Does anyone know who he is or what country he is from?

      Could be the same place Ray Dunakin is from ?

    • Wow! What other word is there.

    • What amazes me is his models actually work like the prototypes. (I assume.)

    • I just looked at the Dolbeer Donkey. His modeling skills are light years ahead of mine.

    • Expansion of rail traffic is always a welcome site.  Great switching puzzles and challenges with traffic patterns and Dispatchers, that just want to get on to kabitizing and sitting around, instead of controlling the traffic must also be dealt with.  Life, you participate or watch it go by.  Your choice.

    • So far there have been no reports of a great stench, at least no more than one would get from a poultry operation, or a "Pig Factory".

       No complaints from the neighbours...and Jean Chandler has not complained....!! Bruce Chandler should be proud of his very successful enterprise, and I'm sure he is.

    • As, according to some folk, a fanatic - but also hopefully a friend - this all sounds a good expansion.  As a fish lover - to watch and eat - I welcome those comments.  However, one point  you did not mention - although living a great distance from this facility so it would not affect me  -  is how "aromatic" is this waste facility?

    • September 19, 2017 12:28 AM EDT
    • As some "Fiends and Fanatics" may be well aware, Young Bruce Chandler, the CEO of a bottled water plant, and liquid hazardous waste facility, is constantly seeking new business at his Cedar Rock plant. His success with business here has determined that new unloading equipment was needed, and more storage tanks had to be obtained.

      The IPP&W has rebuilt part of the trackage at Cedar Rock, and added the siding for unloading tank cars. Some of the major plumbing has been designed, and installed. More is coming. Two major tanks are being constructed, and the property is being extended towards Peter's Pond.

        For those greatly concerned with pollution and waste management, it is reported that fish stocks in the lake are increasing daily, in spite of  Norton"s Fishery's daily extraction of at least a ton. No-one has complained of the quality of the fish, and no human has passed away so far this year, due to consuming the fish products.

         All this success in business is largely due to the great rail transportation provided by the joint services of "The Ironwood Peter's Pond & Western railroad", and its short line partner, "The Rat Portage & Mattawa Railroad"

       I hope this thread can gradually bring everyone up-to-date, through pictures and reports of the progress of the building program, in the near future. All has to be complete before the Winter embargo, which can come anytime after the first few weeks of October, although some seem to think we may build and operate much later due to climate change.

       Stay tuned, we do have photographers on staff  !!
