Robinson's Sawmill

by JRinTawa (Started 25th September, updated to roof painting stage on 5th October 2014)
Right from the planning stage of our railway I had intended to build a typical 1900's belt driven sawmill.  The likely spot was/is very close to perhaps the most used viewing and operating spot and that spot is pretty much at eye level.

So much thought was needed, or perhaps that is just an excuse for procrastination, and many years have gone past with the sawmill only existing in my imagination.

I should add my Dad worked as a young man in the type of sawmill I wanted to model, so I guess in  small way saw milling is in my blood!

Finally though over much of 2014 I have beavered away and at last the sawmill and surrounds have emerged and now others can share my imagination.
