Hello. I'm new to the forum and a returnee to the hobby. I hope this is the appropriate place for this. I want to build an incline 12 pocket coal trestle with a sand house fitted into the the last trestle bents. It will be based a bit on the 19th century Colorado Midland. It will probably be only the last 180 ft and a static display since it will be fit onto a compact sectional switching and steam locomotive facility (9.5 ft total length) layout. Further expansion to it's complete length and operational. Before you ask, the coal is shoveled so that is not what I mean. Just a push up of coal and sand gondolas with about 220 ft plus connecting rails and switches. Has anybody built a similar model or has access to a set of "plans" that could help me get started. I have several photos, but they all seem to be of the non-sandhouse side. I am probably going to bash the pockets from a modestly priced coal tower kit or .... Any suggestions on a starting point that will not be "too" 20th century? Oops! This is getting too long.:mrgreen: Bye for now.
