      The latter will consist of twelve modules, knockdown and transportable, I have at present three modules to be made to lock up.
      He stays in me some more of work to be executed, in particular in detail because I make quite myself.
      I deliver to your comments where I am there today.


      Module 1

      Module 2

      Module 3

      Module 4

      Module 5

      Module 6

      Module 7

      Module 11

      Module 12  futur pond

      I have the modules 8,9,10 which shall represent the slaughter of trees and their load

      Not only do I like the RR pics but I also like the structure the RR resides in as it looks old to me!

      Ambitious project but it looks to be coming together very well.

      I can't imagine the difficulty in trying to model a subject that is so far removed from you in space as well as in time.

      Keep posting pictures, love to see your progress.

      Thank you all for your comments.
      In order to clarify the photos I enclose a sketch of the layout of the tracks

      Update;
      Following a few comments from French modelers, I took up the position of the engine house.
      I managed to fit it in line with the bridge, the only problem is that it will be riding on three modules.
      On the other hand, it allows me to install three small feeder tracks, one in line with the bridge and the feeder. The turnout will be used for the logger tracks on the modules 8, 9, 10.
      Two photos to illustrate the work

      Update of the day
      I upgraded three sides of module 6 of the bridge in order to be able to join the rocks.
      On module 7, I stuck the styrofoam and delineated the location of the tracks

      Some progress made this day.
      I found that my buildings were too close to the depot, so I started to make a corner which made it possible to remove them and to have space in front to be able to put accessories
      I took advantage of it to redo the disposal of the depot.

      You can see the future climb to bridge

      Great looking turntable.  How did you make the center "wheel" part?

      As the weather leaves me a little time in relation to the garden, I took the opportunity to build a support for my bridge because the latter was in a diorama and included a wooden support on one side and the other a set in engraved stones.
      To remain consistent, I made a wooden one almost identical to the first, but I am not satisfied with the rendering, I will arrange this when it is integrated with the decor.
      Before treatment

      Very cool stuff, so this will be portable for shows or just modular for easy movement if needed?

      Thanks Vic for your interest.
      It is portable for shows, each module does not have 10 "of height to be housed in racks, so everything that exceeds 6" on the module is removed

      Hello everyone
      Despite the 38 ° in my attic and the local farmer spreading his manure, I finished the location of my engine house as suggested by a friend and I took the opportunity to coat the extruder around.

      Today I made a rocky peak to justify the curvature of the track leading to the freight shed and coated the ascent leading to the bridge
