Old Waldo Road

Added the old Waldo road to the town of Waldo. This included bridges, crossings and the station at Sailor's Diggings. The road is made of ground clay, which is glued down and the more clay is dry brushed on top to add travel marks to the surface.

Happy Camp

The logging camp was moved from the old Jackpine location (now the switch back area) to Happy Camp.  The kitchen had to be suspended over the river but I got most of the structures in.  Then Gary sent me a picture of a lumber camp and I noticed all the slash logs on the hill side and a water tank, just what my hill side needed. So I put in a water tank and added stumps and logs to the area.

Cougar Ridge

Finally found some cougars at the Woodstock Train Show, and on sale too. Now I have the reason the lumber company is called Cougar Ridge, beside the fact there was a lumber company called that in the area I'm modeling

Gary's smoked hams

Gary gave me a Woodland Scenics Smoke House to add to my railroad.  By moving back the water tower, I could fit it in at the bend on Hobbs road, as it leaves Cave Junction.  Thanks Gary, I'm sure the folks of Cave Junction mouths are watering already.
