With less than half a month left, I'm opening a new Photo Gallery with the theme "Mines & Quarries". Feel free to add photos of either models or the real thing!

I once again want to caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Wow, that's a busy scene, and I don't mean in a negative way. Lots of detail and thought and craftsmanship. Very nice. I like the dark and lit interior of the adit.

Crandell, Doc's entire layout looks like that. I'm glad that you enjoyed the photo.

Here is another of Doc Patti's mining scenes.

Remora Island after it broke away from the mainland . The mine tubs were hauled out of the mine at double quick time and were only saved from being dragged into oblivion when the cable snapped .

If you don't have a clue what I'm talking about , well , never mined ( geddit!),

What's a quarry or a mine without some equipment? This is the International Harvester TD-25 crawler with blade and ripper bar from the early 50's in HO. A diecast piece from First Gear that has some weathering done.


This is the Bucyrus Erie B-2 steam crawler in a shovel on a period lowboy.

Cavers like myself generally have mixed feelings about quarrys. On the one hand they sometimes destroy caves, but on the other they occasionally reveal caves which were previously unknown.
This scene is about such an event. Almost directly above the figure's head and about a quarter of the way down from the top of the photo is a new cave entrance in a quarry wall.


The quarry rocks are carved plaster over a Hydrocal shell. The cars are by Jordan Miniatures.

This incredible shot is of a Carrera marble quarry in Italy. The zig zag you see on the right is the heavy truck route in. Can you say "Check your brakes"?

photos from my old HO layout









The Derby mine in operation



The Derby mine during scrapping. The train is being operated by the salvage company to pull rails on the branch line, along with the flat cars and cabooses.
