Three-truck Climax #16 hauls a string of log cars to the mill while 2-truck Climax #4 can be seen in the background heading down the switch back on its way to Camp 8 with a caboose in tow. Mainline turnouts are regular point turnouts, and back-woods turnouts are stub turnouts. The locomotives and rolling stock are P-B-L products. The geared locomotives are brass, as is the caboose at the far end of the log train. The caboose in the upper right is an injection-moulded plastic kit. The skeleton log cars are white metal kits. The photograph was taken using a tripod-mounted iPhone 11 camera. Pete took eight photos, each with a different focal point and combined them with a photo stacking software called Helicon Focus to achieve the exceptional depth of field. Pete's photo appeared on the inside cover of the April 2023 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman in the NASG promotional ad campaign.
