Thanks for your comments Greg and George. When installed on my layout, there is a track along the dump bin side. Based on a 1961 photo I have which shows the silos still in place, they were in fact set somewhat above and a fair distance back from the track. My visit to the site several years ago seemed to confirm that was the case. Therefore, I infer that coal was dumped into a conveyor placed under the car and transported to the dump bin by that manner. I included such a conveyor in the photos.

Here's my little freelance version of a Porter air powered loco. It is radio controlled using Deltang gear. You can see the charging plug under the driver and the green light indicates that the receiver is online. This was quite a shoe horn project to cram everything inside the 'air tank'.

Bill, your coal dealership looks fabulous. Seeing it in person at OVAR was bonus! Looking forward to seeing many more of your marvelous scratchbuilds on the forum!

Tobacco Factory for Craig Bisgeier's Housatonic RR (19th century era) layout:

The foundation was delivered to Craig earlier.

Mt Albert siding, Tichy, scratchbuilt and 'parts bin' windows & doors, Tichy iron railing & corbels. Evergreen styrene for roof, some laser cut parts for the dormers, custom cut wood mansard subroof, NESL (unassembled) shingles. Decals for the lettering.

Dave, I need to get over to Craig's to see your Tobacco Factory in person.

Kris, that is a great little structure.

Obviously the highlight of the layout :-) Seriously, although it's been a while since I've been there, there's a lot to see on his layout, Craig is a very good structure builder.

My build is absolute crap compared to ya'lls but I'm only 15 and I've got some time to learn. Took me two 1 hour work nights. The brush truck and dozer are a part of the scene it's going to be put in.

It's weathered and is pretty crummy but I like the look. Named USFS Bridge #40 "Copper Creek Branch"


If it ain't broke don't fix it. And if you do fix it, keep it simple, stupid.
