Musings On A New Gn15 Layout
Page: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
This is where I am at in my "musings."
I'll continue to work on my vats and pickle cars and see where this leads.
Thanks for following, and comments are always welcome.
Anyone have a Gn15 themed layout?
I hope you'll share it here.

You can do the bands with prepainted thin cardboard strips,
and pretend the bolts are all on the back side.

Jose, thanks for that suggestion. I have been trying to come up with something that would be effective, yet easy to do. That would simulate bands very well. Regards, Dave L.
Although not a part of my layout, the processing takes place in a different facility. Very large companies might combine the making of pickles in one large complex. Regards, Dave L.
Finished pickles were packed in jars and labels put on. Regards, Dave L.
Bulk shipments went out in barrels. A side industry on a layout could be a barrel factory. Regards, Dave L.
After salting in large vats of brine, the cucumbers were netted out of the vats and loaded into the pickle cars for transport to final processing. Wheelbarrows were used to carry them from the salting vats to the open hatches on the cars. Regards, Dave L.
Here is a small operation that is about the right size for a Gn15 layout. Regards, Dave L.

I came across this Bachmann HO pickle car (water car?)
and am wondering if a few of these could work for a small pickle salting operation.

Small glass beads will represent pickles floating in the open vats. I found these on Amazon. Regards, Dave L.
