Fred', First up, very nice work! Now second up', Looks like it is going to be very difficult to load that platform up with cut wood. The wood stockers are gonna be plumb tuckered out climbing up and down those stairs.As Mike has eluded to, questions are being raised...

Thanks, Guys !!

Ted, this is back in the 50's when men were men. It's a two man operation. The first carries an armload up to the first platform, drops them on the upper platform where man #2 stacks them. There are other platforms along the route so they are not trying to completely re-stock every time, just keeping things topped off. Besides, they have 8 hours to do it, or longer if they get behind. By rule of the brass hats.

Let me know if you believe that.

Always enjoy your updates. Everything looks great. I am also always looking for ideas to "borrow" and the platform may be one.

Indeed Fred, Statistics state, that back in 1950, that platform would be completely loaded full in 2.5 hours by 2 Yardsmen, or else they would be on the carpet in the brass hat's office'...

BTW Fred, I treated my self to the same loco for Christmas. Perfect for my incorporating ON30 into my O Gauge layout'...with some motive power...

Thanks, Ed, Roland !!

I know, Ted, you got yours the same place I got mine. I don't think you'll be disappointed, especially at that price.

Fred, you're 100% correct'..I have been looking for some time @ ON30 power. Couldn't resist at that price. Let me know if you are going to install sound. SocalBob, bought one also. So that's 3 of us that will need sound down the road'..We can start a thread on how to install it, and maybe you can lead the way, as I have no idea where to start with it...

Ted, that would certainly be the blind leading the blind.

Sound isn't a major concern to me so I doubt I will rush into anything. Right now I'm running mine on DC because I'm not set up for DCC, would probably try to get that first. If I really feel the need. I'm happy with it now.

Ooh! You guys are bad. I saw you showing off your good deals so I HAD to go to Train World to see what's what and, lo and behold, they had a DCC-equipped 4-4-0 Modern. So I had to get it...
But, not to get too side-tracked....very nice work you're doing Terrell!
Cheers,
Dave

It recently occurred to me that what my railroad needed was a first-aid station. In case someone should get hurt, chopping wood or something.

So here is the early beginnings of that station. I also wanted to show off my clean mat.





Actually, the station occurred to me because a good friend suggested it after hearing of my wood chopping incident. A special thanks to that friend.

Finished the chimney .....





... or so I thought. I hadn't planned on an interior, so that's what I'm doing. And, since I am, the chimney needs a reason to be there.
