That looks like a fun plan, with lots of room for some spectacular scenery.
One thing concerns me though. You said it is cold down in the basement now. Does it warm up? because the changes in temp. could cause some problems with the layout.

It is about 13-15 C in winters, but i plan to put some minimal heating this year. We just moved here last year.

First log cart is completed. Here is the sequence:

I have used some HO scale spiked wheels and put a wider axle for the cart wheelsets:

Next comes the frame of the cart:

Then I added some rails on top and attached the wheelsets to the underside:

Looking good David. Love the log carriage - I'm looking forward to see how you are going to scratchbuild the band saw. I'd be too tempted to buy a kit for that.

My blog is now up, tracking all the progress I am making on my layouts: http://stevensvalleyrr.blogspot.com/
I will write about all railroading topics there, not only my work (e.g.: http://stevensvalleyrr.blogspot.com/...ay-museum.html)

Time to add some more details to the support columns.

I have painted the Grandt Line nut-bolt-washer castings to rust color and created some basic metal plate:
Attachment 2402


Glued the castings to the plates (3 bolts to each plate):
Attachment 2403

And then glued it to the columns in the sawmill structure:
Attachment 2404

Only about 30 more plates (100 nut-bolt castings) to go :-)
