Thanks again. And thanks to Joe and Bruce for this years challenge. It has been a joy to model especially with Chester and Frederic' in mind while doing so. Hopefully I can complete my models within the next couple of days before this thread is locked.

Rich



Nice job Rich. Glad your back at it. I know about those 1:1 projects.

I decided to do just this simple coal shed instead of one with several roofs and enclosed areas. I like the way it looks.

Mike


Nice looking coal shed Mike. You're one of the modelers that inspired me to try board by board.

Mike,
Great job on the coal dock structure! How many feet of stripwood did you use to build it?

Thanks Carl & Bob. Been a very enjoyable challenge, and I appreciate you following along.
Just a shame there weren't more participants, but that;s how it goes sometimes.

Mike, the coal dock is even more impressive, the further you move along with your build.
Keep on going.

Rich, I'm still following along, and am enjoying your build so much. You've really taken the word "challenge" literally, with wanting do so much more work.

Just to give this thread a bump, before it gets forgotten.
I just found the below thread of vehicles, and Chester posted lots of photo's of his vehicles there. Sure did a lot of variety.

14 pages of wonderful vehicles.
http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=27528&whichpage=2

And of course so did many others display their vehicles also.

Here's a couple of Chesters.

Rob,

I want to thank you for putting up the link to the vehicle thread, that included some of Chester's vehicles. Just looking back at all of the vehicles, I saw some that reminded me of the many telephone conversations that I had with Chester. There were also some I hadn't seen there too.

I have not checked this thread for a while and missed some of the comments. I want to acknowledge Jerry, Jim, Bernd, Carl, Bob, Fred, David, Karl and Rob, for their favorable comments on my and others' models here.

Although the main structure looks finished, I mentioned above that there were details I wanted to add, mainly the chute mechanisms. I've been slowly working on these bits and added ropes, weights, and pulleys for one chute:



Here's a sketch showing how I built it:



I started with one of a new Tichy part, trimmed as shown, a hole drilled through, and a piece of styrene added to one side. The other side of the pulley snuggles against a wood beam. The weight is a piece of sprue with a hole drilled through and threaded.

Only 19 more to go.

Mike

Mike. Nice jobs on the chute mechanism.
Must have been fiddly to do. And so many more still to be done.
