There are many of us, me included, who are detail junkies. There is no place better to show off some of those great details than on the 'loading docks' of our stations, warehouses, and other industries on our layouts. Therefore, I want to devote this month's Gallery to showcase those loading docks. Any photo, model or prototype, that includes a loading dock is welcome!

As always, please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page). This can also be acheived by sizing your picture so the width is in the 680-720 pixel range.

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

Here is a couple dock shots of the Pine Flat Packing plant. The same structure is on the cover of the Jan/Feb 2007 N Scale magazine.




Thanks for taking a look,

Inspirational Bruce. I saw your message come through and thought I can do that!
Always a good way to spend a few minutes Mike listening to a bit of homemade music.
Nice photo Dave I would never have guessed that was N-scale.

And in just a short time...



Just another shipping day at Chambers Machine.

Here is a shot of the Federal Inspector checking on the questionably safe work environment at the Kittom Lumber Company. From here the flats will be loaded with lumber for all over the USA. That is if they pass the inspection.

Couple of shots of my N Scale loading dock with ever present office cat on drums.

Farmer McDonald, we know him as "Old McDonald", shines up his new tractor before it is off loaded onto a truck.

Not quite on the loading dock but pretty close.

Tom, Don, & Gerry, thanks for posting those photos. Gerry, that certainly counts as a loading dock in my book.

A little different , but within the theme , as my beloved Hulett Ore unloaders are doing their thing to the tune of 17 tons per bite at the dock site .

Part of a harbor diorama, sorry nothing but crates of sardines on this dock.

I sure wish I could figure this posting pictures stuff. I keep getting "operation not allowed" messages.

Chester, that is a fine looking stone & concrete loading dock!

Here is another small wood dock.
