Foamboard mockup of next project...looks like its going to be a really interesting one....original design and equipment is by Western Scale Models. Just trying to modify the design to include a Horizontal Brick Boiler on the left side and a maintenance shop on the right.

I would appreciate some dimensions for your mill.

I need to make an L connection of the two pieces of the On30 Arroyo Mine RR and thinking about a mill to take advantage of the 8" drop to the new "valley" floor inside the L. Planning a curved trestle at the back. I have an old Colorado Scale Models kit but I think it is too deep for the scene. I did have a Trains of Texas Blackhawk Mill but it was ripped off by the widow of a now deceased manufacturer who had borrowed it for kit planning purposes.

Bill....The original plans are for a mill that is 64 feet wide, 80 feet deep and 62 feet high.
With my additions mine would be approx. 95 feet wide by 85 feet deep.

Richard, I wonder why do you saw tooth cut the back like that? Is it to fit different heights of stacked foam? This looks like another great project can't wait to see it come together. Pat

Pat...the original plans were from Western Scale Models and the saw tooth cut backs are for the
6 floor levels. I guess this is a way of saving wood since the cut backs would not be seen
when put into a layout.

Nice start, Richard. And your project for additions to the stamp mill will make the structure even more interesting.
