I guess that I'll just "slag along"!! It happens that the foundations for the Comanche-Silver City smelter were slag, worked "like concrete" so it will be in my model. Now, where do I get scale slag?  Hmmm...

While I ruminate this vexing question and relax from a day at Pam's house, I will post photos of a "new and improved" turntable. Well, it ain't really new but it looks like what I want.







Instead of the pine block turntable with rivet overlays and more work, I remembered this little TT from the old Mogollon Railway. This came from the end of the line at the cliff dwellings, used by the Gila Tramway to turn their little 4-4-0. It needed about a scale 2 feet whacked off the length and pit wheels (what do you call them?) installed. The wood ties and upper deck shows about 5 years of actual Mother Nature weathering and I like the looks. I hadn't intended to use any of the old layout on this new one, but I just couldn't resist. After all, there are NO photos of the real TT so I used an "edumicated" guess and here it is. This thing rotates better and lines up better than that damn pine block did anyway...so there.

Beaudreau , fellers..

I thunk..that sure looks like the real thing..this is the character of "models of note.."...

Not many modellers seem to get that "look" ..big on quotation marks this eve..I get paid by the number and artistical use of them fer sure..

As in..it ain't whot ya say..it is about whot it looks like..

Lyrical wax..for yer surfboards...

The thing is..these models of yours..whot the peoples..yer fans fer gowds own sake..key on..this stuff..could be the real deal..writ small ..I enjoy seeing the stuff...

Good job..carry on....tut tut..pip pip...etc etc..Si will translate from the original english...

Anyway...

...The turntable looks great Woodie.

All that 'genuine' pre-weathering is hard to fake !

I'm just a bit disapointed it's wooden...

...as had hoped we'd get a look at the legendary...

...Herb 'O' Rivet (TM)...

...IN ACTION !

I'm sure the new Silver City N.G will need lot's of rivets in the future though.

Cheers.

Si.

Slag photos… first up, the Illinois Mill in Nevada:






The smelter at Bonnie Claire, NV:





Close up shot, with slag next to concrete footing for comparison:




These smelters processed mainly gold and silver ore. But I've seen the slag piles from the copper mill at McGill, near Ely, NV and it looked the same.
