Lumber Mill remodel

Did you ever wonder how a lumber mill worked? The club members have been pondering that question to come up with a logical layout to the parts of the model we purchased about one year ago. Mike Baker asked if instead of burning the wood chip debris we could turn it into a profit by loading up wood chip cars to sell to those people who make paper. That would give us another use of cars when we get to do operations.
Rick and Allan have elevated the structure so it sits on a concrete base, added a deck for the workers to move the logs, and a number of other features that will make this area another feature of our layout to be proud of. Did I mention I weathered the building yet?  Wait till the water gets put in place!
