Oh man - That's cool!!
Tom you show every angle of the model but I can't see what you needed that pipe wrench for lookin good
It is for intimidation. I told the Medusa Cement kit if it gave me any further problems I was going to take a pipe wrench to it!hamr And I had to do so at one point. The wrench worked great as a weight to hold down the silo roof in one area.
Speaking of the Medusa Cement Company kit it is now assembled. The only things that I did not install were the truck doors on the silo. I still have not decided if I am going to install them. They may be too modern for my era.
I will have photos once I remove the tape and clamps that I have holding things.
Next is weathering it.
Here are the promised pictures of the cement distributor.
Since I took these I decided to add the truck doors and I added the sign. I chose one of the Walters supplied names: Inland Cement Company.
Nice job Tom:thumb:
Wow, and I thought my project was ambitious. You're moving along nicely.:thumb: :thumb:
Here is the weathered and sealed Inland Cement Company:
Now I have also begun lacking the track bed. I am using Woodland Scenics Foam Track Bed.
Looks good ! Can you build me a nice n scale metal water tower ?
Great job weathering the cement plant.:thumb:
The layout is coming together nicely.
Boy, what a cruddy-looking cement plant ... Great job of weathering my friend, I'm impressed with what you're doing. :thumb: :thumb:
I glued down the track and while it is drying, I have begun to try to fit the next industry into the layout. This is a coal-fired power plant. I would like to have an unloading track and a couple of storage tracks for the coal hoppers.
Here is the first attempt.
This is all subject to change. At the moment I am not thrilled with this. I am also contemplating having a scenic break in this area with a track going off into the mountains to a coal mine.
I have begun working in the area of cement distributor. I have laid the track bed.
Testing the clearances in the shed
Now I need to find a realistic bumper in HO.
Tom, those are some fine buildings you have there. The weathering looks great, not to mention all the spurs you have added to enhance operation. I am looking forward to see how the rest comes along as you always seem to feature my favorite roads in all of their gritty glory. Very nice. Stuart.
Tom , what's that wooden tool looking thing? Looks like a cut off cant hook handle with a wooden peg on it ??
It's great to see all these famous scenes of yours being linked up together!
Now that you have this well-honed photographer's eye, it's going to be really cool to see what you come up with to "fill in the blanks", so to speak!
It's looking great!

Neat!! Looks Great!!!
Which photo? Are you refering to the knocked over smokestack?
Could be that he means the stack that resembles the end of a drumstick...
I think he means the power plant smokestack that is lying on its side in a couple of the photos...?
