Hume-Bennett Lumber Company

Here is my blog for Hume-Bennett Lumber Company. Hume California is located in King Canyon National Forest (Monument). For those who may not know Hume Lake Dam was created for logging. In the day the world’s largest flume ran from the dam to Sanger, CA. It was about 57 miles.

A better attempt on the bunkhouse inside:


Here is an unfinished view of the Hume mill model:


And finally my unfinished shay engine #2: (Yes, it runs nice…)


Anyway this is the fun stuff that I have been doing. It is very helpful to have pictures and from and may views as possible to build these things.

Matthew, This stuff is great! I've been interested in the Hume Bennett has a cabin at Hume Lake. I have always wanted to build a model railroad of the area. Where did you get the plans for your sawmill? Did you just go by drawings? Any updates?
