Western Scale Models has a complete line of sawmill equipment in 1:20.3 scale to furnish your sawmill's interior. The pictures below show our sawmill display which has been modeled in part after the McLean Sawmill in Port Alberni, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. Our model was built in four sections so that it could be transported and set up for the Narrow Gauge Convention in Seattle, Washington, September 2012. The sections consist of (1) the log pond, (2) the log deck with log carriage, circular saw and winch to haul logs into the mill, (3) the edger, cut-off saw and log rolls with the steam engine and boiler in the basement, and (4) the green chain and small machine shop.

Two books on sawmills may also be of interest to you, "Modeling a Steam Powered Sawmill, A Detailed look at the Hull Oakes, McLean and Sturgeon's Sawmills" and "Let's Build a Sawmill, How I Built a 1:20.3 Scale Sawmill".
