Thanks John

Not quite ready for motors yet,
too many other projects to finish.

I'll keep your links for future reference.

Making progress on the House on the hill.
 
Still needs windows and doors, plus three balconies.
Two in front and one in back.
 




Also, progress on the "hotel" part of the Big Stone Mountain Lodge.

Walls are temporarily held in place with masking tape.
Still needs a roof of some sort too.

I'm thinking of a roof top deck with part of it covered,
in case it rains or people need to get out of the sun for a while.

A mine motor, with a string of empties, on it way up to the mines.

    The ore bin at the Kurtis Shaft,
    looked as if it would be difficult to construct, in the full size world.
    So, I rebuilt it.

    Now the large timbers could be more manageable.
    Steel rods, with nuts and washers on each end, would pass clean through the bin.
    These should keep the bin from busting at the seams.

    Finally, a bridge over the lower track.

    Until now the track crossed on a bit of foam core.

    A cut down plastic funnel was used,
    to concentrate the flow of Appetite Ore when loading tram cars.

    Speaking of interesting track arrangements,
    I find this view of the passing tracks at Midway, to be pleasing to view.





    Looking the other direction,
    we find an interesting S curve overgrown with grass and weeds.

      Is anyone on the railroad old enough to remember,

      whether there are ties under the rails on that s-curve ?

      ;)

      You would think the track crew would take better care of the main line.
