    Layout # 7

    Part 2

    This was a fun layout as
    it incorporates logging and mining. No towns, no lights, just the two industries and a couple of camps. Funny how things cause an evolution in my modeling career. Health and finer details made logging and mining more important than towns and paved roads. Jim

    It's interesting, and fun, to watch the evolution of your modelling, Jim. A thought occured to me vis-a-vis P/b. As part of the "contract" we have with these free accounts, IIRC, we give them the right to use our pictures as they see fit. As I suspect, most who use that site would do so because of it's 3rd party sharing that we enjoyed, now that we can't, we delete the ones we have stored there. It is after all, a two way street.

    I'm lost. I've gone to look for me. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

    Yeah. It seems that a lot of things go in that direction as we get older. I used to really enjoy a trip into the city, now I'm more than happy staying in the country and away from the millions of people and the filth of a city.

    Thanks guys. Toot if I knew how I would delete them. Of course as soon as I do they will go back to allowing 3rd party posting. It is nice that they think I've made a dime on my work with them? Jim

    I know this is off subject, but because of your mountaineering past, this news item came up on our local ABC. There is a short clip from an upcoming film. The climb was done during Tasmania's wettest winter on record

    Thanks for the link Toot very interesting. In fact I know of this Taz climb. I was in Darwin playing golf with a local and somehow climbing came up. He mentioned this climb, but I tuned him out when he said it was a 100 miles to get to it! My climbing days were before digital and all on slides. I thought about a comparable climb I've done and came up with one from my home state. North Ridge Direct on Mount Stuart. I took some photos of the route and climb from the internet, don't know another way. Check them out. Jim

    Why does anyone do it?.......I know, I know....'cause it's there! I noted that Ed Hillary regarded that Tassie mountain, as the only one in Australia, worthy of being called one. It's a rough piece of work though.

    This is it for N scale. This layout took me right into the beginning of this thread. So I guess I did about 10 layouts, plus other stuff. Next up, a couple of items that I either first contributed to the hobbie and simple builds. Jim
