A mini-update of sorts; having made contact with my modeling muse (no doubt due to the cold, snowy weather we're going through), I continue futzing around the Market Street branch, after a couple of years deciding on a final arrangement for Barrett Shingle, a fairly substantial customer. This is what it's looked like for awhile:

[URL=http://s229.photobucket.com/user/RBickmore/media/IMG_1245.jpg.html][/URL]

As a shingle manufacturer, Barrett needs paper, aggregate, and tar, so I needed to cobble together an unloading rack for the tar using Walther's piping kit, Evergreen I beams, and other assorted nibs and nabs:

The top line is electrical conduit for the lights, the middle a steam line for heating, and the bottom for the tar:

A small, scratchbuilt pump house that will get increased piping to make it look busy:

A canopy for the unloading dock...

End shot of the complex; the large concrete silo is for aggregate storage:

And a final shot from down the street:

The last piece of the Market Street puzzle, CB&I, still eludes the "Ah Ha!" moment I've been trying for....once decided, I can then finish up the street paving and call the area "complete"....maybe.

Rick,

Another great industry. Is your model of the piping based on research or your prior experience in the industry?

Outstanding! I do love the lines for electric, steam and tar. A fantastic detail that looks so right. You've done it again! I can't wait to see it in person.

Thanks, Eric....it's a mixture of research, opportunity, and imagineering. In it's heyday, Barrett was a fairly substantial producer of chemicals, asphalt and shingle/roofing materials. The inspiration for modeling it was partly as a customer for Commonwealth as well as Joe H's description of a Barrett facility that used to be located in South Philly. As one of the many byproducts of the coking process, tar tends to be pretty thick, gooey stuff, requiring heat in the form of steam in order to thin it enough to flow. Besides tar and aggregate, the facility receives boxcars of paper and an occasional hopper of coal for the powerhouse.

The finished products are shipped via the Barrett Capital Street warehouse (on the other side of the wall:

I think he thinks we will forget about the Linglestown Branch extension Phil, but he's sadly mistaken!

Good looking industry you've got there Rick. I see the NH made an appearance. No doubt picking up finished products for an CT customer after bringing in some product?

The Dumouchel Paper Co. in Waterbury,Ct since 1881(E. M. Hotchkiss Paper) would supply kraft Paper as would Kraft Paper CO. in Versailles, CT.

Noted! Bill, since I am the one that makes up the waybills for Rick's layout, know that the waybills for these cars are being reprinted with that industry on them as the shipper! This could be the first RRL interchange service!

COOL!! Thanks Mark. The routing on my railroad world go from Kraft or Dumouchel to Hartford Yard--then sent to the PRR car float interchange Bay Ridge Yard/65th street yard, Brooklyn, NY to PRR interchange---then on from there.
