Chuck, on a scale from 1 to 10, I give it a 10+.

Nice finish, Chuck... the use of slate is really not all that surprising actually... it was cheap and plentiful back in the day, especially in the region in which you are modeling... BTW, is that a 'scale' pun from Greg?

On balance, I would say that is a 'scale' pun.

Chuck,

Bonnie just looked at your scale house and gave it two thumbs up.

Thanks, Bonnie! Now you'll have to see the revised area. When you were last here, the area was stripped clean of track and structures.

Bruce, I wrote up the scale house for the AP program. I need to finish work on the other structures and remaining paperwork.

Nothing really new to report. But, I just wanted to share a photo of the status of Lunde Colliery. You can see the scale house on the far left, next to the red pickup truck. The foreground area where there is some empty space will eventually have a wash house and a Dorr thickener (water treatment facility). And, there will be an office near the scale house. Plus, probably a few other small structures. I still need to finish the breaker and head frame. Lots to do.

Looks nice overall; At this point I'd be tempted to start with the ballast and coal fines, with 'dirt' or 'coal fines' paint only where future structures will go.

Really nice looking Chuck. Looking forward to the start of the scenery.

Fine set of buildings, Chuck. They all contribute to very well define the scene and give it a strong structure. As Jerry said, the addition of scenery around them will blend everything and make a great piece of modelling.

No real progress on the layout, unfortunately, due to the 9 to 5 job. But, since I went to the trouble of posting a link on this morning's lounge thread, I thought I would post it here. This is the URL for the PRR scale house that is just north of Lewisburg, PA on Route 15. The longitude and latitude are exposed after you click on the URL, below. I figure Mark would want to know where it is, anyway.
http://tinyurl.com/PRRScaleHouse

If you scroll it to the left, you will see a northeastern style caboose. I do not know the heritage of it. But, I have seen cabooses come and go from this track. And, the little building to the left of the scale house is something else I do not know much about.

But, if anyone visits the area and needs a place to eat, there is a place called the Country Cupboard. When you scroll the view to the right and look south on Route 15, the next light that is green is where the Country Cupboard is. You won't go away hungry.

Google maps, including their street views are a useful modeler tool.

You sure you didn't take yours outside and take that picture???

If not you sure did that building all the justice it deserves Chuck. Great job.

Thanks for posting that and thinking of me Chuck! So maybe I missed it somewhere but where is that scale house originally from? If memory serves me correctly, isn't that an old Reading line that it currently sits on? I believe that's the line that made its way down to the PP&L plant at Shamokin Dam.
