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.
