    :wave: Hi everyone,

    Just thought you guys might want to see some of my new layout that I just put in. Well, here it is:

    • First is the Glacier Gravel Main Building.
    • Second is the Coneyor from the main building to the mountain for underground mining. The mountain will be covered with rocks, dirt, trees and brush when I get some money to get them.
    • Third is the Blue Star Ready mix. It will rest sideways against the mountain as it is in the picture.

    I love it. I had a few kits for my own layout but I cobbled them together so quickly (and crapily) that I figured I would trash them.

    All those trucks are awesome...I wish I had that kind of selection in Nscale (that didn't cost a small fortune). Those buildings look great!!! The detail and realism you're going to be able to get with all those great looking trucks and buildings is going to be something to see.

    Thanks Guys for all the nice compliments.

    :wave: Miles, I haven't hooked up any track or poweer yet. I think I am going to wait until I get all the buildings and track in place.

    Here are some more pictures:
    • The Asphalt plant. That is pretty much were it will go and will have a constant supply of gravel from the bunkers.
    • Here is the CN&W hoppers with my new BNSF Dash 8-40B
    • The bunkers for the Blue star and the Asphalt plant that are in the same complex. The bunkers will have a supply of gravel from the Walthers Bulk Conveyor with the pit and the conveyor dumping gravel into the small open area next to the bunkers.

    • Here is the Magic Pan Bakery Complex. It will have the tracks in the middle of the warehouse and the bulk silos. And of corse, it will have a yard of trucks and trailers.
    • That huge space will be a huge steel mill. I just have to wait until I get enough money to start getting them off of e-bay. I plan to have the following Walthers Steel Mill kits:
      • Blast Furnace
      • Rolling Mill
      • Coke Oven and Quencher
      • Yard Office
      • Slag Cars
      • Hot Metal Cars
      • Coke Cars
      • Mill Gondolas
    • And the last one is the few of the New River Mining Company. I still have to add a similar mountain as above for the conveyor. I thought that the conveyors would be better off going into the mountains for a underground or far away mine rather than making a mine on the layout cause every one knows how much room it takes up.

    • Another view of the New River Mining Company. It's the conveyor housing for the conveyor that goes to the Coal Flood Loader. I painted the Buildings with Black and Grey Primmer and the handrails with caution Yellow to make them stand out.
    • A view of the coal train getting loaded by the main building. The coal cars are 5-Bay hoppers made by Walthers.
    • View of the Coalporter Train being loaded by the coal flood loader and snaking around the bend. There will dbe a switch coming on the mainline. The coalporters are made by LBF and are BNSF.
