      Joe, rather than mess up Gerd's thread, can you email me how you do it, always fails for me.

      Hello logging railroaders,

      after my journey into the Colorado narrow gauge world during the last months, it’s time to return to my beloved logging railroads. The good weather outside motivated also to take the “Louise Valley Lumber Co.” out into the garden to do some operation.

      While I was shunting trains in Ronja Springs, I got the idea to switch the scenery. I moved the factory building to the left end, close to the future sawmill area, while the spur at the right was decorated as storage siding. In combination with the logging theme, I like this arrangement very much. I just have to find something between the water tank and the station building. Maybe a freight depot?

      The regular logging operation brought several train loads of logs from the upper end of the line down to the mill. I used the wye to shunt trains “in the woods”. I ran all my LVLC locos.

      At the end of the day, the model train also delivered the first ice-cream in 2019 to the customers ;-)

      So the start is done into a new logging season!

      Gerd, you have a great looking railroad. Love the logging theme AND the geared locomotives. I have a feeling the ice cream train was the most anticipated one of the day

      Hi Sean,

      these are Shay and Climax made by Bachmann Spectrum. Both engines got rebuild to be wood burners and got an original weathering by the late Mac McCalla.

      Thanks Jim ;-)

      The weathering had caught my eye. I did look on your site in hopes of  seeing some closer pics of the engines .. Nice.

      Hi Sean,

      Some photos of the Shay are on this page. The Climax is not yet listed on the blog. I sold her several years ago, but was able to get her back some while ago.
      So it seems it's time to update my blog pages with details and new photos of my US rolling stock.

      Gerd
