Rich,

Nice inside detail work.

Nice work by everybody doing a project. It's great sitting on the side lines and watching masterful modelers projects coming together. Am always learning something from such projects.

I've finished the basic external structure of the bins; chutes and other details need to be added. Meanwhile I started work on the upper, shed part. One long wall is built and I'm about to start the second one. The work goes fast but is pretty repetitive. Not complaining, though.



The completed wall is lying on the foreground.

What with changes in some of my plans I'm running short of certain sizes of scale lumber so another order to Fast Tracks is nigh.

Michael,

Really like that board by board construction of your coal dock. Looking very good.

One question. I went back and looked at your sketch and wondered how you arrive at dimensions to build your structure?

Mike, that's an impressive looking structure!
I can clearly see why you need to order some more wood.

Thank you, Bernd, Greg, and Bob.

Bernd, late 19th Century insurance maps show footprints for several coal sheds ranging in length from 150 to 300 in length. They were large structures. Model Railroader has published plans for coal sheds, one plan showing bay size to be 16. Ten bays gives an overall 160 length, just under 2 actual feet, the length of stripwood I had that is appropriate for framing. The general framework mimics a drawing published in the 1870s for a Lehigh Valley locomotive coaling facility.

Greg, I planned to use thin plywood for the slope sheets, but Im liking the structure so much that I will probably do it with scale lumber.

Mike

Mike,

Bingo, the light just went on.

I remember seeing a coal shed plan in MR. I've got the issue also. I get it now. It's the same that I've done with TT scale engine shed. Looked at several two stall plans and then used dimensions form those to come up with my own design.

Another small update from me.
The back wall has some different detailing.
and I've been doing some distress work on the weatherboards




Have got the other half (2 walls) together.

Rob,

I like your technique of making that side of the building look like it needs some repair with the distressing of the clap board. I'm paying close attention to how it's done in the steps leading up to a finished building. Makes me more confident in my future structure building projects.
