The TMMC has come a long way in the past couple of years and I sincerely thank everyone for their input, comments and advice. There's still so much more to do. Ready for part II? Let's go!

Thanks! I wasn't sure if you were loading and dumping as part of your operations or not.
Arizona Dave Posted - 11/21/2020 : 10:47:39 PM
Sure, I just swapped them out in the video. In actual operations, the ore loads are removable from the cars. They are made from solid blocks of foam, painted and decorated with a covering of raw "ore."

Another great visit to the Thunder Mesa, thank you!

Can you talk about how you fill the ore cars when you spot them here? Do you have some sort of loading bin in the rock work, or were they just reset for the video? I did notice that that cars spotted looked fresh from the free box, while the loaded ones have seen a bit more service.

Thanks for watching, guys!
Bill Gill Posted - 11/21/2020 : 9:16:29 PM
More good stuff, Dave. Thanks for posting.
Rick Posted - 11/21/2020 : 6:55:23 PM
Dave, I'm falling behind watching your vids.
I'll try to get caught up tomorrow.
Thanks for posting them.

Today we have a new post and video on the Helengon Mine, named in honor of the legendary John Allen. I hope you'll check 'em out.

Thanks for the description of how you built and signed the tank and pump house. Good info.
railman28 Posted - 11/14/2020 : 5:59:39 PM
Dave, I enjoyed the video. The tank wrap is a good idea.

Dave love the new town of Rainbow Ridge. Outstanding work and the video is just great.
Arizona Dave Posted - 11/14/2020 : 4:08:44 PM

This week we have a how-to video describing the build of Thunder Mesa's stone based water tank. I describe the techniques and materials used to create realistic random stone walls, and reveal my secret for perfect graphics on model structures. Enjoy!
