One of the necessary ingredients for processing fish head glue is boric acid. 
The Charles Fish Head Glue Co. has it shipped in a designated tank car made just for this.
It is painted red so as not to be confused with the company's silver glue tanks. 

Thanks for looking. 
Regards, Dave L.

Hi All, in the next few days I'll take a piece of 3x6 paper and work out the final track plan for the new S. Charles Fish Head Glue Co. layout. 
My usual practice after "doodling" a plan is to lay it out full size using actual turnouts. 
In this and the next post I'll share my two choices and try to make a decision. 

Thanks for looking,
Dave L.

Dave, I like the second plan best.

I would suggest creating a passing siding behind the Ship Stores building so you could serve facing point and trailing point sideings.

Agree with Larry n passing siding.  It would increase operational flexibility. 

Love the water fronts and would suggest the idea with boats.  They really add to the charm. 
Water also adds a great deal of interest to the scene. 

Pix is of a boat I built a few years back on one of my display layouts.

Bob, I like boats, too, and hope to have a few on the layout.
I am partial to lake steamers.

Explain a little about your water technique, if you would.

Regards, Dave L.

Sorry, guys, I am not sure where to put that passing siding.

Any way you could copy my plan and put it in?

Regards, Dave L.

Here is where I am with the new Fish Head Glue Co. layout.

Next step is to draw it out full size. 

Thanks for looking, Dave L.
