  • In-ko-pah RR: New pics

    Here's a couple more pics I shot yesterday...


    In this one, a passenger train goes through a rock cut before heading across the Serenity Canyon viaduct:




    And in this shot, a boxcar long past its prime sits beside the Mineral Ridge Mill. I still need to build some stairs to the door of the mill:





    Enjoy!

              Still haven't had time to do any modeling, but here are a few more recent photos…

              Multiple crossings over Serenity Canyon:




              The sorting house at the top of the Mineral Ridge Mill, with the Cliffside Mine visible in the background at upper right:




              A train passes through the town of Mineral Ridge:




              Enjoy!

                Good stuff Ray! I always enjoy seeing pics of your work. Your layout never ceases to amaze me. The weathering on that one boxcar in the first set of pictures is great.

                      Thanks! Ask and ye shall receive… I had a little time today to put up a few more pics...

                      Here's the ore bin at the Princess Shilo Mine:



                      A freight train pulled by a steam locomotive passes through the town of Dos Manos:



                      Here's a close up view of structures at the Cliffside Mine. On the left is the powder magazine, where explosives are kept. On the right is the wooden ore bin:



                      An old stone cabin at the ruins of the Monolith Mine:



                      And here's the interior of the cabin. A 55-gallon drum has been turned into a crude wood-burning stove:



                      Also, yesterday we finally replaced our flimsy, canvas-topped gazebo with a new, all-metal one. Made by Hampton Bay, it's attractive and very sturdy! I had to replace the canvas on the old one every two years, at least. This one should last a good long time:

                          OUTSTANDING, what more could I say.

                          Thanks for sharing these photos

                            Impressive and inspiring! I can't imagine how those structures survive the elements. Can only guess what they would look like up here after winter in the Great Lakes!

                            Did you do a SBS of the building of the abandoned stone cabin? Can you let us know if there are other photos of it on your posts?

                            I NEED to build something like that!!! It's awesome! And the interior wall detail is incredible!

                            Keep the shots coming!

                              Thanks. I'll have to see if I have any build photos I can post to show how I made it.
