      I like the backdrops. I've been trying to come up with a plan for my indoor portion built last winter. The green painted concrete block wall doesn't add much to photos   I work in a sign shop and can have photos printed on self adhesive vinyl, but coming up with a panoramic photo that will work with building flats has been my challenge.  I will probably end up stitching a whole bunch of photos together in Photoshop.

      Vinyl backdrops are very durable. You are fortunate to have access to a complete sign shop and could make a huge backdrop. I noted there are some custom backdrop designers out there on the web........but I think you will do well with photoshop and maybe Google Images???

      I will be watching to see what you come up with.

      You need to sneak one of these in there!

      Now that is very cool Sean!! Be a neat trick to get that on the layout and perhaps even animated.    Doc Tom

      Focus on the important things at hand Doc!

      If you can print your own, then why not take your own pictures of what you want?

      More activity on the mini layout means more timber is being harvested at the log landing.

      [​IMG]

      Those logs have to go somewhere so a log dump has been constructed on the flip side of the mini.

      [​IMG]

      The logs will be off loaded here and slide in to the Red River. They will be floated downstream to the sawmill.

      [​IMG]

      It is good to see the little steamers making some $ for the Original Kittom Lumber company.

      [​IMG]

      Thank you so much for looking in on this small backwoods operation.

      I put down some tie down rings for the cables that will unload the log car. These were made with some small inexpensive pendants painted to look like rusted metal.

      [​IMG]

      [​IMG]

      Two cables will go to a yoke and be lifted by means of a "Gin Pole" cabled to another steam donkey. This will allow the logs to be lifted from the car and dumped down the log slide to the Red River below.

      Here is the prototype log dump with a "Gin Pole" that I will try to emulate.

      So the messiest part of layout construction is completed with "dirting in" the log dump side of the mini layout. The "dirt" is actually a blend of real dirt and two brown shades of Scenic Express fine ground foam.

      Next up grasses, low lying winter bushes and leaf fall.

      Thsnks for looking. Doc Tom

      Looks like photobucket is no longer free. Some are saying it will be $400 a year to get pics back on forums. Hope you other guys haven't been hit. I had never exceeded storage limits with careful deletes of unused photos.

      Looks like I will need to find another way to post pictures.[:-banghead][:-banghead][:-banghead][:-banghead] Doc Tom

      I think I pay $5 a month for 52.3 GB of storage, of which I've used 0.9 GB and I have a lot of pictures on PB. I did it mainly to get rid of all the ads that slowed it down.

      Seems to be the season for Ransom ware, are your pics hostage or confined to their rooms?

       

      It will really upset your past, if you don't pony up, each pic would need a new address.

      I hope Benevolent Bob doesn't get ideas!

      Yep it appears that all the photobucket pics will eventually disappear unless you go with the plus 500 plan

      I figured it was only a matter of time.  That's why I chose not to use photobucket.

      Thanks for all the input. $500 a year is a lot. What other options do you guys suggest?
