Very nice George. But is an Ice Station really relevant in January?

Thanks, Frank. It's where you go to get out of the weather.

I've added the ice platforms to the building. The lower one is to add ice through the reefer doors, if needed.





I've added a chimney for a stove and a stand pipe. Burley Jim PM'd me about these details, which I was overlooking. Now the workers have a place to warm up and relieve themselves.

The next step is to add stairs (no pun intended).

It looks real good George. Will there be a safety rail on the back edge of those platforms? Those platforms get a little slick.

It is looking very, very good, George. The platforms stand out nicely against the white of the ice house.

Thanks, Greg, Bruce and David. I'm glad to have the platforms installed, it's starting to look like an ice station.

George, the additional bits on the roof finish it off nicely.
And now with the ice platform attached, it's all lining up nicely.


Regards Rob

My current build.
