      • 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. It’s 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. It’s based on a 19th Century doctor’s 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, 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.

                • Thank you, Pete and Greg!

                  Greg, yes, it’s about time I put my hands on my coal and my grunge powders.

                                Ted,
                                Thank you. I’ve 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. It’s a favorite of mine.

                                Mike
