Here are a couple of more views of the east extension at San Miguel. 

More car storage on the left along with an additional run-around track,
and engine servicing tracks in the center. 

Still to come is more dual-gauge trackage on the left.

Been thinking that I'm going to need some motive power for the 42" gauge line. 
Nothing fancy, just a little switcher would do.

Found this Atlas O scale 2-rail WDT six-wheel switcher that looks like it would fit the bill.

Cleaned out all the old grease and re-lubed it.  Weighs a couple of pounds. 
Has a high starting voltage that should settle down after giving it some run time.










Not really planning on changing much except a few details. 

Not sure if I'll put RC in it as it will only shuttle back-and-forth about eight feet or so.
And the cab is filled with a large weight.

Started work on the switch that will take the 24" gauge track to the proposed log dump.

The dual gauge will continue further on.

The NI&E is getting into the logging business... at least in a small way.





The car is a scale 15' 6" long.  Maybe a bit on the short side,

but should work while I experiment with some type of unloading method,

without resorting to using the 0-5-0.

Now that I've gotten the operating log dump

https://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=8661&forum_id=11&jump_to=117210#p117210)

all worked out I can get back to track laying. 


Can only work on the layout in the morning,

because it gets to 100F plus degrees in the afternoon.

I guess logging is the collective unconscious in the HO gauge larger scale world.

I just built a log car as well.


One thing about the loggers is they are actually fairly easy to mass produce.

Elsewhere someone was talking about colorizing black & white photos.

Though I would give it a try.





This is a black & white photo that I ran through

https://demos.algorithmia.com/colorize-photos (free service).

Interesting effect.

Thanks Si!

And nowhere near as pricey as some of those Lionel operating accessories.
