Here's the catch, I saw an add for an HO scale frieghter and tanker: http://www.historicrail.com/historicrail/product_info.po?ID=7738&product=models and http://www.historicrail.com/historicrail/product_info.po?ID=7739&product=models Now here's the delemia, do i do a frieghter operations or a tanker operations dock. either way it'll be 1930's and I'm having a hard time finding any info on how dock operations worked in the 1930's with a rail system. I'm thinking, since these are so long (5'6" and almost 6'), that they'd be put parallell to the backdrop and in a corner. I'm thinking, if i go freighter, i can use more rolling stock, put 2 cargo transfer parallell to the ship and a small sorting yard in front of that (or in front of the ship). If i go tanker, I'm limited to Tank Cars, would have to put some tanks near the ship, and still use the same basic 2 track and yard system as the frieghter. Although i could get away with other rolling stock and say they're for other ships in a different stall. Idea's welcome on this.
