Wow last post July... A lot has gone on since then. My daughter got married and I am now 18 days from retirement .. I can't believe it.. My Grandfather passed away at 93 back in May. And I have had a lot of work to do on the farm to fix things he would not spend money on to fix over the past 10 years. Its finally gotten cold here and I will slow down on the outside work..

I have done a little work on the layout since July. Here is a video of my water.

Nice little mine track. Try holding the camera right side up.

That's a lot going on in your life over the summer. Hope all is well with you.

Thanks Frank,
All is going great.

I have started work on a Hoist Frame for a small mine I am putting on the layout. This is just a start of the it. I cast a wheel and the bearing.

Thanks Ray,
I found an old plan in the Gazette for the Rattlesnake Mine. It had a picture of the head frame from the interior. Of course no dimensions.
I did find online a gentleman named Alan Mole that built on in 1:24 scale. After a quick search I found his location and an email Address. I emailed him and asked if he had any other pictures. He replied and sent me a bunch of pic's the next day...
Great Guy...He also sent me a picture of the Mine Cage. I had not thought that far along. So I figured I had to get that built before i got too far along with the Head Frame so I could make everything fit.
I main goal was to make parts that I could easily cast in resin.. So here is what I came up with...

I had a Western Scale Models Ore Car to scale everything around...

The Metal frame was made from large tongue depressors. The base was made from a 1/4" thick sheet balsa an I used Ho scale rail. I then Molded both pieces and then cast the parts in resin.

First parts out of the molds.

Hi Ty,
Looks really cool! Will you offer the castings for sale? I would like to replace the crappy wheel I have.

Thanks Guys for the comments.

I am still working along. I took a old roof casting and made a cover for each size. I then made a new casting for the guard rail on each side ...
