    OK, I'm bored here at work, and have been meaning to start scratchbuilding any day now so why not today. Problem is, I can't find any decent plans for an engine sanding facility. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

    Steam era or more modern/diesel? I may have a few references for you.

    OK, quick review of my resources reveals a few...

    There are two modern towers in the Kalmbach book "Trackside Structures...", and one can easily be backdated by "un-abandoning" the abandoned sandhouse, and adding the (demolished?) sand bunker.

    The other really cool one is from RMC Jun-Sep 1988. It is a combined sand house/ coal tower, with the elevated sanding tank attached to the side of the coal tower.

    I know I have at least one more plan if either of these are not suitable...

    I'm not familiar with that Kalmbach book. I have "Easy to Build MR Structures"and "Bridges & Buildings". Any other resources like that would be greatly appreciated. That abandonded one sounds like it might work.
