Merry Christmas

Gerard
First of all A Very Merry Christmas to you all.

I have a question where is the closet sawmill that was served by the C&S?

And is there and plans or drawing of them?

Everyone have a great day!!

I'm not certain just what a "closet" sawmill is,  "vest pocket" to describe something small maybe?  
Not all at the same time nor specifically C&S ownership sawmills were mentioned at Morrison, Buffalo, Webster, Jefferson, Divide, Nathrop, Hancock aka sawmill curve, Pitkin, Keystone. I'm sure there are other places mentioned in other books.

I doubt you will find a quintessential Sawmill served by a spur or siding(of the Model Railroad variety) anywhere along our favourite line(s) as most were scattered off line, or adjacent to the railroad for easy loading on team tracks/public sidings.  Most seems to be rough sawn if that but usually Mine timbers, Stulls and Crossties.  Beaver Brook on Clear Creek, had a proper loading spur for cut Boards but these were trans-shipped from horse drawn wagons.

Previous threads regarding such discussions ... Jeff will chime in with his Jefferson research I hope.

Was it just props ?

  I do not recall exact pix.  I do remember an over-track crane/rack for
loading and stacks of material waiting to be loaded.  Seems to me, I
recall the material was sawn, but I could be remembering it wrong (?).
Did Klingers have a good pic in the High Line book ???

The Jefferson sawmill was located some ways outside of town.  Some of the workers lived on site, and there's a picture of their houses, but I don't know of any pictures of the sawmill itself.



There are also some nice pictures of the Almgren family who ran it.





(All pictures from Park County Archives.)

They evidently lost a horse at some point:



but that's about all I was able to discover about the operation.

Cheers,
Jeff.

Pretty sure what was meant was the 'closest', not the 'closet' sawmill.

An article in Bogies& Loop mentions that there was one at Platte River.

Thanks for your help.

I'm looking for Sawmills and Stamp mills that the C&S would have served or been around.

I have some F-Scale machines I would like to build and make them part of a C&S diorama.

Oh,  "closest".    Where's a Redface smiley when I need it?

Never thought that, thanks Steve.
