This month's Photo Gallery is devoted to those rail served customers who keep our railroads in business. If it is a business who gets materials in or sends materials out via rail, it should be included in this thread.

Either model or prototype photos are once again welcome.

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.

At both the MER and NER Conventions last month, we had the opportunity to view many nice layouts.

Here is a granite quarry on Dwight Smith's HO scale Northern Vermont Railroad.






Obviously a very good railroad customer.

That's a nice quarry, Bruce. I can understand why you took a photo of it!

Here is an in-process series of photos of my anthracite mine, Lunde Colliery, the largest industry on my layout.

Going from right to left, here is a photo of the breaker, powerhouse and a mockup of the miner's wash house:


More of the breaker and a water tower. You can see coal jimmies where HOn30 track is planned to be installed:


The headframe, remains of the original hoise house, and the newer hoist house:


And, the fan house:

It looks like a load of feed has come in by rail.

A load of Blue Coal being unloaded under the watchful eye of local law enforcement and the Army after members of the local at Spartan mining became restive at the intrusion in their area.



It is being unloaded at Ethan and Olivers alternative fuels plant (Eth-N-Ol) that is known for some stretching the limits of the law with a thriving side business of a fair share of their 'fuel' being carried away in Mason jars and glass jugs in the trunks of fast cars...all the while not being at all embarrassed accepting the government 'free money' supplement for making 'green' energy, even if they use Blue Coal. Always a great group for stirring the pot they're just letting this issue simmer.
