@coosvalley and @sirenwerks, that is awesome! I am in debt--thank you. And now of course I want to model the whole industry! But handlaying that much narrow gauge track... or any, for that matter... damn...

On the bright side, the diorama now gets a name, American Thread.

FWIW here is the mill in 1982, there are earlier years, but none are better detailed than this one.
