    Thanks folks. This has been a fun project. Dave I don't know about that but will think on it.
    The riggers came so the cables are taut again. Then this poor hostler lost the draw and has been sent out to turn the crank that then turns the turntable. Not an easy job. A muscle builder for sure.

    Paper mill

    Inspired by Mike SD90, I have started making a paper mill. Cardboard as usual.
    It is based on the remains of one here in Georgetown, ON

    I only wish I was in HO Val but have far too much invested in N to even think about it

    Good idea Val. Will be looking for some good small diorama plans. I know there are tons of them. Need one with some good switching puzzles.

    Hey Clark I have always believed in re-cycling. Hope I can do justice to this structure Mike. I am still waiting to see how yours turns out.

    Wow Robin that is really impressive!! I love massive structures like that, and only wish I had room for more of them on my layout. Hmmmmm, maybe I should get into N-scale.

    Now Val, when I said I needed to get into HO or bigger when I saw you wondeful loco bash you were all for me to build an HO diarama so now I can say you should build an N scale diarama with a large structure on it.!!!!
