    Found some at RLW at the bottom of the page are links to the individual parts https://www.republiclocomotiveworks....tem.php?ID=954

    RLW used to have a kit for this , maybe if you contact them they might know how to find one https://www.republiclocomotiveworks.com/show_item.php?ID=548


    As long as I can model in N-scale, I know I'm not old

    Model Tech Studios has some logging and saw-related stuff that could work: http://modeltechstudios.com/

    You can find bundles of lumber from a variety of sources. Some that are actual wood and some that are plastic. Either way, they seem to need work to look like lumber.

    A lot of that stuff could also be scratch built. I had some success getting the square ends of chopsticks to come out like bundles of 2x4s.

    Hello,

    I'm new to this forum so I will use this post to introduce myself. My name is Patrick and I am mostly interested in modeling scenery. I am french canadian so pardon my english.

    I will contribute to this thread by posting a picture of my sawmill that includes the details from RLW just mentioned above.

    Cheers

    Very nicely done, Patrick! And there is nothing wrong with your English. Je voudrais que je parlais le français si bon.
