|This old stone mill was a major landmark on the old layout and I was able to find a home for it on the new layout.|
The Benchwork is Almost Done- Whew!!....by Don Janes
|I was able to find a spot for the stone mill right at the room entrance. It will have two sidings to switch. The room door will be removed.|
All the new benchwork is standard "L" girder construction with risers to support the road bed. This is a very versatile method that allows changes to be made easily. I have used sheets of 1/2" plywood for the table top so I can layout where everything will go then once that is determined I will start cutting it out for various low areas and a river I have planned.

|Here are a couple of views of the peninsula looking towards the entrance of the room. Note the location of the stone mill in the top photo. These photos gives an overall look at the layout of the room.|
