After a break doing scenery and the small track construction, I'm back working on the coal shed. I still need to complete attaching the last several chutes into position, but meanwhile I've been working on ancillary structures. Here's the shed earlier this week:



I built the retaining wall at the entrance end. Here it is being glued on with my special custom-modified clothes pins to hold everything in place until the glue dries:



I built a simple fence for the far end of the coal yard, and a more complex retaining wall and sliding gate to form an entrance:



From the other direction:



The little structure is a stand-in until I build an office. The architectural style will be very similar but a little simpler in detail. Itís starting to look like a going business.

Thanks for following.

Mike

Very Sweet. Excellent looking, pleasant scene. Of course your execution of this build is excellent. It really fits your model's region and era. But, I love the Georgian accents on the office building. I bet the gate works too.

Bob,

Thank you.

I like those classic accents also. Itís based on a 19th Century doctorís office in a historic village near Rochester, NY.

The gate can be slid back and forth about halfway closed; it rests on a little hidden runner.

Mike

Mike, that whole scene has a real life look to it.
Once you get some coal & coal dust spread around and other related details, it's going to look even more fantastic!
I love the office structure.

Ted,

Thank you. Iíve spent far more time on the facility than I planned, but the more I do the more I want to do.

The temporary office is one of my first scratchbuilding projects when I re-entered the hobby several decades ago. Itís a favorite of mine.

Mike

Russ,

Thank you. I wasnít sure how the gate would turn out. Iím happy with the result. It helps to know others agree.

Mike
