    That could be right Richard I am not sure about that camp but hard time finding kits to make for east coast camps. Most of mine came from Republic loco works. I think around 10 kits for the sawmill and that complex. They are the best models for the sawmill and complex. If i had enough room for there sawmill I would have bought it too. Even at 400 bucks it would be the best out there! I don't remember any sawmills in West Virginia being that large. I worked in two of them as i was younger. Some were about as big as my sawmill kit that Wathers made.

    I like the mountain logging application for a layout like this!

    Beware the S-curves! The only 22.5 degree Unitrack turns are super-elevated double-track transition pieces, so you end up with a super-elevated ends that won't mate up with straight double tracks.

    Is that a double-slip switch at the sawmill (Unitrack does not have them)? Otherwise, there's no access to/from either end of the siding the spur for the mill crosses.

    I would also caution against having removable tracks cross between modules at non-right-angles to the boundary (e.g. the logging track as shown.) You could just bend that logging track further downward, parallel to the boundary, rather than crossing it. Logging tracks in the mountains were typically known for their sharp curves, with short logging locos working them.

    For Digitrax, zero is typically the toggle for the headlight.

    I believe this is part of a radio aerial or power cable if you look on the picture of kit you see what looks like small generators
