    Nice set of plans Mike. Drumhead looks awesome. That mine reminds me a bit of the old HO coal mine kit from model power # 16.

    As part of the history search for my railroad, I learned that historian and archaeologist Dr. Henry Jones Jr. had a copy of the Drumhead logo for my railroad: the San Miguel Central.
    Luckily, I was able to exchange a copy in exchange for information on where to find a "safe warehouse" in the US, guarded by "top men"...

    One big advantage is that in O scale, I can use dimensional lumber for model aircraft use. A lot cheaper.

    The plans are as impressive as the build its self. Great looking work put into this structure.

    Michael, the plans are wonderfully drawn. Nice job. The combined mine is going to be huge when assembled an will certainly catch the eye. I can't wait to see it. ~mike

    Beautiful plan. It's going to be impressive. And prototype or not, very credible.

    It's going to look fantastic. I wonder if an actual mine structure was the inspiration.

    Thanks! I actually don't know if it has a prototype.
    I have searched the web with no success.

    The preliminary drawings of the mine.


    I will measure the space available and make alterations where needed.


    The winch house drawings.



    Now to buy a LOT of wood!
