The plan is to get some stock from water. But that stock will maybe first go to the feed lot to give me more opportunity for operations. I feel much of the processed meat will be barreled and used to provision ships. So I will have to provide for that somehow when wharf plans get more developed.

Bob,

Remember that discussion on transporting salt a few months back? Not sure you've seen this photo. But I stumbled across it yesterday:

Horse, some plans mostly ideas at this point. Nothing written in stone yet. I have seem pictures ofhe Oakland Mole (CP) which have stock pens with removable sections (like gondola sides)on the top of the wharf and I would like to represent something like that. My company is a Railroad and NAVIGATION Company. We also run boatup and down the Coquille River but also to the north and eat side of the bay. There were several small communities there that could of raised cattle and other live stock. We'll see.

MIKE, Thank you very much. That picture is very informative.

The pic is great! I would caution following that completely, as the pic is 1909, and salt was mostly shipped in barrels/casks before the turn of the century. Canvas was still a pretty heavy fabric (for sails), and canvas bags were less common.

Progress has been inching along. I add steps to the loading platform and laid ties for the spur;






And started my water service tanks

Hi Håkan. Things are moving. Slowly on the RR as I fight, Allergies and do a few Honey-dos but the tanks are progressing;


The glue is drying on the second tank's bents as I type this.

What are you working on?

Looks very good Bob! I'll hope its ok if I later on ask you for dimensions as I have some to build also.

Thanks guys! I have been working on the Sawmill area adding the poker and detailing. I have also made two skeleton cars from Keystone kits. I show some pictures this weekend. I'll also do the last water pour this weekend as the logs floats a little to high for my liking.

Thanks Guys, and Yes, Håkan, Phil says I share the plans and I would be happy to do so.

I've added the bracing to the bents and started work on the frost boxes;


Now I got to get tickets for Star Wars.....

The Film was fun. I've been fighting a string of colds and have found the garage too cold, but have made a little progress on my tanks. The one one the left is for Beaver Hill Jct. and the other is for Coos Bay;
