These pictures of a "used to be" coal dealer. A couple of pictures are from the internet. I don't remember which one's they are. The others are from me. I have more if interested I'll post them.

This picture faces east. The weigh scale is between the weigh house and the silos.



The holding silos. You can see where the unloading shut's were by the holes in the side of the silos.



I wonder what kind of coal they sold?



The west side of the scale house.





East side.



South side.



The scale. Somewhat obscured by years of non use.





A picture of the scale before they boarded up the windows.

Next time I am there definitely will take camera and have a walk around the site. Not much left of period stuff around home except for our main street.

The one in Bergen has had the top removed and all the elevator stuff. All that is left are the two silos according to the satellite view.

I usually travel the Interstate 90 for a fast run or go US 104 route out of Lewistown NY.

Takes me thru Bergen. But I have never seen this structure, BUT I may have been speeding and paying attention to whats ahead rather on the sides.

Hoping my friend in Brockport can direct me to the location next time I am there.

Here's the Bergen location. It's right on Rt. 19 after you cross the main line tracks.

Here's the one in Leroy. It's also on Rt.19. It's before you cross the R&S tracks heading south on 19.

I do have the Roy structure drawn up for laser cutting in both HO and N scale, based on the MR drawing. Did build a few test builds but never did write directions for it.

Thanks for the offer Bernd! I may have an old copy somewhere....

I really like that conveyor hidden in the weeds!
This thing would make a great gravel station for a small quarry.

Philip,

According to what Bernd posted on page 1, plans are in the Sept. 1972 Model Railroader page 46-47.

Mike



Yes they were Philip. They were done by Harold Russell. If you don't have access to the drawings let me know.

I was in LeRoy, NY recently, and took the following photo of the other side of the dealer in LeRoy NY:



I was in a hurry and it's not the best photo, but it's an interesting building nevertheless.

Jim,

I looked at it in Google Earth. I came up with about 18 feet in diameter. I also tried to see if I could find any trace of how the track would have run around the back side of the buildings. The buckets on the silos doe indicate loading from the track. At least that's what I deduce. I can't remember if there was a pit or not. I searched to see if I could find a platt map of the area. No luck, only modern stuff. I also looked a geological maps. Couldn't find anything on Bergen from 1920's to now on those. I guess will never know.

Bernd

Bernd,

If you have Google Earth Pro, look at it now with the removed top structure. The diameter is pretty close at about 16'. There is a slight distortion with the photo. The 'tool' option of Earth Pro measures miles, feet, meters, etc. It's free, and very nice for this G2 work.

Jim
