I started to make the carriage that transports the log to the machines.

I used some old wheelsets and made a fixture from modelling clay to hold the frame until the glue hardens:

After the carriage flatcar was ready, i painted and attached the top part. Also i made pulleys from some other wheelsets by attaching the two opposite sides:

I have not started the layout yet, but maybe this summer (the basement is quite cold now).
