Nice looking water tower Larry, as for your earlier question, how about a blacksmith shop, mines always needed to have repairs done.

Thanks Jeff, Ron and George.

Ron,
I could always try to fit this build into the scene.


George,
The Rivets are NBW castings from Don Tichy

They make them in all scales.

Roland and Ron I will try to figure out if I can fit this blacksmith shop in to the space or if I need to build a much smaller structure.
Geezer, don't worry you will be back at it soon.

Looking great Larry. Love the mine and the ore bin. Are they a kit?

Cheers, Heath.

I finally got something done on my distraction project.

I glued down the ties for one end of the layout.
Doesn't sound like much, but it's progress none the less.
Also put some joint compound down between the two pieces of pink foam I used.
I think I need to do another coat before I can continue laying down the rest of the ties.

Heath,
Thanks so much, the mine is scratch built but I can not take credit for it. I picked it up in the swap meet a few years ago for a great price it is made of cardboard.
The ore bin is scratch built using modified plans from a Virginia city ore bin kit. I photo copied the plans and then cut and pasted copies together until I got what I wanted.

I am happy you make some progress. So when are you sharing pictures in the mini layout thread?

FYI, mines always had a blacksmith's shop, usually near the entrance of the mine, because the drills and other tools needed constant sharpening and re-hardening.
