HO SCALE: Armadillo Lumber Company

This 1920 era HO scale layout was designed for a member of the Micro/Small Model RR Layouts Facebook group and his freelanced Armadillo Lumber Company set in east Texas. The owner only wanted the layout to include a sawmill with log pond and a engine repair house. However, as you can see, I kind of expanded a bit on the theme. Since I have...
