Mike,
Small but mighty...I love your cabeese models.
The detail is excellent. They look great connected to the freight cars.

Mike, sent you an email unrelated to model RR a few minutes ago. A bit of a rocky mystery... :)

Got it, and replied with a question.

So I spent about a week of lunch time going through this thread. Really remarkable stuff, Mike. I admire your skills and your commitment to a pre-1900 prototype. Good on ya. Your fleet of box cars inspired me to finally order one of the little 25' Bitter Creek cars to build while away from my family for work. Thanks for taking the time to document your modeling here.

Ryan,

Thank you. Although I havenít built any of the 25í foot boxcars I expect they are as much fun as the larger ones.

Youíve reminded me that Iíve not posted anything new here for a while. Iíve been realigning track and moving buildings around.

Mike

Another place where I need to do some updating.

Thank you for your interest.

Mike

Mike... not sure how many pages back, but I saw you did a couple of tanbark gondolas. I think you said you had a hard time finding prototype photos. Here's the Jennings Brothers in Lopez. By 1900 they were standard gauge and may have been using LVRR gons for bark. Or not. Anyway, here's a photo that could be of help. Lots of bark! (Also notice the peeled logs!)

Thank you. It looks to me that they built a framework above the two coal gons. I think by this time the LV was replacing its coal gons with true hoppers. Obviously the now-old coal gons with their flat floors were relegated to carrying lumber and tanbark.

Mike,

Glad Ryan said something about you having a web site. Quickly surfed over there and did a quick look through. Very interesting. I'm using part of the LV in my up and coming layout. The quarry idea is taken from the one in Leroy, NY where the LV had a connection with the quarry. Also I'm using the branch from Rochester Jct. north to Rochester to connect with the old B,R, & P to move coal to the Lake for shipment over to Canada. The southern branch, known as the Hemlock branch will be used as staging for a lumbering operation, yet to be developed.

And as you said it needs a bit of an update. A couple of links are dead ends, other than that it makes for very interesting reading. Inspires me to get something together for my railroad history.

Bernd, thank you for perusing and poking around my website. I'll check links and add some photos in the coming days.

Lately I've been altering my trackwork to accommodate future industries and to give my coal dealer more prominence. Here's a brief tour.

Starting from the shops area . . .



. . . we will pass the depot and freight house . . .



. . . the coal trestle . . .



. . . a brewery under construction and the packing house . . .



. . . to the lumber yard:




The brewery will probably move to make room for a different enterprise with lower roof lines. So far I have only built the malthouse portion with its distinctive towers where the sprouted barley was roasted. I will likely place it in an area backed by a higher backdrop to highlight the towers.

Mike
