That's really nice Fred, great job! -:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:
my two cents
Thats a super structure. Looks great by the tracks. great photo also :thumb:
Now we just need to see a loco getting fed Fred. An excellent scratchbuild that should go into the academy.
Sorry Robin, I don't own a steam loco. LOL
I'll borrow one next time I go to the LHS if they will let me. Fred
WHAT!?!?!?!?! No Steam?????
In my opinion steam is best. Especially wood fired steam. (drool-drool)
:thumb: Fine job Fred! Now you have to get that steamer! :thumb:
beautifully done , Fred , and that outdoor shot ( and the earlier ones ) really set the model off perfectly .
Just excellent Fred. It must be a heritage structure being saved for prosperity so todays folks can visualuze what the steam era was all about.
Thanks guys for the comments. I model the 1980's, so I'm sure there we still coal towers standing here and there. There are still a few standing yet today that are made from concrete. One is about 15 miles from where I live in Monett in the old Frisco yard. These are just too fun to build. Since I did this one I did 3 more smaller ones and now am doing an O one for a mate. I encourage you all to give scratching with wood a go. It's fun and cheap. I figure I have about $15 in that tower, 1/2 of it in plastic ladders and rails. Fred
