Austins, is a unique mill in that its still a family operated mill after many years of business, & is also one of only a few left that specialise in the cutting of Cypress Pine, a wonderfully beautiful timber, one that white ants will not touch has grain like no other, but is harder than hardwood, really requiring drilling holes for nails to penetrate the timber even when green & worse when dry.
Its not a large mill, & one ideally suitable for a model layout. The heading photo is of the large machinery shed & the remaining is of sections of the mill itself, the office & residence is at the rear.
Following on from my last post, I have now been able to primarilly finish off the ground work at Moblayne both at the depot & the goods yard. Some wiring is still needed to be finished but I am generally pleased with the results. Some updated photo's, in one photo that I took it showed up a glaring problem with an approach road from coal stage to Turntable, requiring some per way fixing to it.
