Great set of pics, Grant. You have a knack of capturing atmosphere - the 'quick cuppa' shot is a fine example.

Couldn't agree more, wonderful pictures! The logging branch looks great, and the passenger rake is very smart. Dare we hope for some busy shots featuring branch and mainline trains meeting at the junction one day? Or would that require too many hand?!

Thanks for the inspiration,

Andrew.

Excellent Grant, I will one day strip back my Silver Lady and try and paint her just like your locos look.

Weirdly, it’s been the same here: black shadows and bleached out highlights, at least when I attempt to shoot stuff.

But your pictures look great, anyway.

WOW!

You never fail to capture the very essence of railwaying Grant.

All the best,

Andrew

I've been very lackadaisical in my viewing of the forum of late, so only now catching up on some of the lines. You've done some more stunning work with that sawmill, and as usual your photos are superb, even in bright sunlight. You give us all something to aspire to Grant, well done! :salute:

Thanks Phil,
The sawmill build is still ongoing, more equipment to allow the passage of logs. I've been struggling with the placement of the mill and its backgrounds and the other day a giant pair of hands came down from the sky, :shock: removed the mill, along with the subterranean foundations, levelled the ground and we will start again. There is some advantage in this garden railway hobby over real life LoL :D .

With Gray's Mill firmly established at the new site there is plenty of work ahead with the log yard filling up.

Great photo's Grant. :thumbright:

Some great work done on the wood yard, it's looking very busy. Looks like things are looking great for the company.

Hi Grant,

Another visual treat!

You have taken great care in your selection of unprocessed lumber, each piece looks just like a scale trunk. I shall get a great deal of pleasure from studying these closely over the next few days. Thanks Grant,

Andrew

A fantastic tableaux you've created there Grant. Will you take in the raw 'lumber' so it doesn't weather, or are you just going to let nature take its course? Lovely stuff either way.
