Carl, thank you. The kit is manufactured by Portland Locomotive Works and available from the Keystone Division (Mid Central Region) of the NMRA: https://www.keystonedivision.org/convention_kits/convention_kits.html

Making any progress?

You've grown awful quiet here in this thread.

Just sayin'.

I've been applying chute details to the coal shed that I built for this year's challenge thread. The chutes are all rigged up but not glued in place yet in this photo:



I was afraid I would knock and break off chutes as I worked on adjacent ones so I left securing them in place for last.

I've been asked how much stripwood I used for this structure. I didn't keep a tally, but here are the labels for packs I emptied. Some were not full when I started and I've used parts of other packs, but this gives a general idea:



I need to build a small extension to my layout to accommodate this new industry.

i think it's worthy of its own layout but an extension will do fine.

good job Mike.

Thank you, Andre.

I was referring to the 2019 Tribute Challenge: http://railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=51322

Thank you for the link, Mike.

Nice models can be seen in the Challenge thread.

Looking at that thread was bittersweet: I was saddened to learn of the passing of Frederic Testard. I have known Frederic since my Sn3 days, but over the past several years our internet paths didn't cross again, until I joined the Early Rail forum. Frederic was such a splendid modeler and nice person. Do you know the cause of his passing?

Andre,

I think somebody might have posted his obituary. Youíll have to search.

Looking good Michael.

Looks like you may have been the cause of the denuding of the HO scale forest.

Mike, the coal chutes & rigging that your adding look terrific!
I can totally understand why you left those details off until near completion.
Will you be adding some black chalk or pastel to them to make them look used?

Greg,

Thank you.

I hadnít gotten as far as thinking about dirtying up the chutes; now that you mention it, yes I will.

There's something about dirtying up a coal dock that is particularly satisfying :-)

I donít always get around to weathering or dirtying up. However, on a structure like this it will add some definition and variety.
