Very cool Rob, I have a couple Bachman G scale trains and I should set up a Christmas scene .
Thanks for sharing the video nice layout and the invitation.
Yep those Kelly perfects are nice, my favorite is the long felling axe the one I fell the tree with.

Re: A few new toys

Thanks Cam, back in the day when we split by hand we used one of those heavy splitting mauls but most my adult life I`ve had a gas powered splitter.
Yep axes are cool but lots of work along with using a misery saw. to old and out of shape now days.
Had fun with the drag saw though.

Thanks Sarge, it`s kinda slow but as ya say beats carrying the chainsaw. Still have to bring the trees in from the woods which is work. We sawed quite a lot of wood with it here`s a picture.
