Looking in, I'll venture the opinion that the prototype would have used at most one gateman/tower. Crossing gates of the Model A era were operated remotely either by cables in underground pipes, or by compressed air. Often the 'compressor' was the arm of the gateman on a hand pump...

Well, well, Greg's back and in the sea wall business, nice. With that higher ground behind Testard's I'd be checking the basement for leaks.

Greg, it's nice to see this topic appear again. Thanks for the temporary answer, and be sure I haven't forgotten the maths instruments, even if I am currently more involved in foresting my Amazonian landscape.

Thanks guys for your encouraging comments!
I really enjoy getting & reading them.

James,thanks for your thoughts about the crossing tower,just having the one works much better for me.

Frederic,no worries,just keep on foresting the Amazon.

I forgot to show a photo last night, that included all of the ships, and how they look around the newly installed pier walls.
I even covered over my book shelves with a drop cloth,to try and make it look nicer,for you.

Since I don't see the Titanic in that scene, I can only guess it sank off shore?

Wonderful scene, Greg!

Thanks Chuck!
Actually,the Titanic is in that photo if you look closely,just above Testard Instruments in the background there.
You will see the Academy Models info display card about the Titanic,with a tiny picture of the Titanic on it.
And my model of this ship,in it's display case, is just under that display card.

I think I'll have to send you some math tool crates by ship. With such a facility you shouldn't have any problem receiving them...

Greg just getting caught up. Everything is really looking great. I really like the look of the sea wall around the pier. I have found those curved switches to be a great space saver where I didn't have room for a normal switch. Looking forward to seeing more progress on Magoun Pier. Keep up the great work.
