Thanks Bob and George . Yep I'm really happy with how the roofs turned out.
Installing lots of signs ar the moment. So getting close to finishing the structure.

Rob, terrific job on the corrugated roof. It looks just rusty enough.

A quick update. I received my order of stripwood and was able to complete the bins.



Possibly there should be dividers between individual bins, but once the superstructure is installed they would be virtually invisible.

I also added the track above the bins. First I glued the rail to the tops of 10" by 12" beams using Goo, then glued the beams to the supports.

Mike, So very nice. A very common coaling station design that is so rarely modeled because it takes so much room and you're nailing it. Well Done!

Mike, Looks like a great piece of workmanship on that impressive wooden structure.

Rob,

Nice work on the roofs, they look great.

Mike,

Your model is coming along nicely. In correlation between this structure and ice stations, I have wondered why they're so long. Is it because they can accommodate more than just a couple of cars? Overall I think your model is beautifully constructed.

Rich,

I think until coal was stored in silos or tall bunkers with a system to raise coal from track level, the most efficient method was to dump it into a long series of bins. The actual volume of coal storage is actually quite small compared to the overall size of the structure.

Thank you for following along and for your observations.

Mike

Looks wonderful Mike. Really looking forward to seeing some coal wagons on it.

Are you doing the superstructure as part of the challenge build too ?

Rob,

Thank you very much. Yes, I plan to do the superstructure, and was in fact working on it this morning, hoping to have photos in next day or two.
