Hereís another Catís Head Pier. This my first HO building and I hoping to build a small layout around it.
The building is not from any prototype. In the instructions
George mentions observing the operation of one in action. The one witnessed was Searspoint, ME with the BAR RR taking timber, and potatoes (?) then bringing coal back from the harbor.

Trestle mostly complete. Use plastic for the slope sheet instead of paper.
This is my first post, so bear with me if the pictures donít post correctly. The build can be broken in three parts; the trestle, 350 ton bin, and the crane or unloader. Criticism is welcomed.

It's looking good. I really like that model.

Thank You.

So far the unloader has been the most challenging. Added a 2nd floor to the operator's cabin since the windows offer a pretty good view.

Front wall on... Added 16 pillow bocks for the wheels.

Quick shot of the side. Should be all caught up. Looking forward to adding the mast and boom.

Looking very nice.

The crane sitting on the cutting board really gives you a sense of size!

Cheers, Mark.

What the others said, plus I like the color of the wood.

Great job.

After John H Murray's (http://modelersforum.com/index.php?topic=3024.msg77864#msg77864) I haven't built anything big. I have Cats Head Pier your and Mikes postings are giving me the incentive to build it. I like big HO coal structures! Any other postings and Pictures would be a big help. I am thinking nut bolt detail also.

It's looking great. Sure is large & complex build. I also like you colours and weathering.


By the way. We don't know your name. Maybe insert it into your signature line.

I'm just looked getting caught up on this thread and agree with the others. Great workmanship on the coal trestle.
