Here is the log unloader installed on the layout. 

I soldered on an arm to the post on the underside to actuate the unloader. 
A simple pull-push rod will unload the logs.

I'm sure someone could come up with some sort of electronic gizmo that would do the job,
but I prefer keeping things simple (and cheap).

There must be a way of using a microprocessor in that somehow

Or an expensive slow motion machine to yank the rod


Of course you could just leave it as it is


:f:

Eddie,

I do have one of those Tortoise machines that would probably work.

Nah, that's too much to bother with.

Yeah probably would work maybe

Probably go wrong next week when it fills up with sawdust as well


On the other hand that wouldn't affect a microprocessor

Solid-State as the manufacturers used to advertise

100% reliable products right ?


Albert Einstein was never in logging though


:f:

Number 8 pulls into Manly Siding, and prepares to drop off a borax car at Morrison Borax Company.





Number 8 has spotted the borax car, and pulled a water car and salt car from Scotty's Salt. 

Train crew is getting ready for its return to San Miguel.

Number 42 'Ward' running light on a test run crosses Buckensnortt Creek.





Number 42 pulls into Manly Siding along side Number 8.





Both engines meet up again at the San Miguel yard.

New log car under construction. 

This one is a scale 18 feet. 





Been using HO scale metal passenger trucks,
and I'm liking them more and more with the added weight and longer wheelbase. 

I can usually find them for about $5-7 each.

While doing some switching in San Miguel yard I realized what an improvement the new yard is over the old one.





The "old" yard.





The "new" yard.
