Philip,

According to what Bernd posted on page 1, plans are in the Sept. 1972 Model Railroader page 46-47.

Mike



Yes they were Philip. They were done by Harold Russell. If you don't have access to the drawings let me know.

Thanks for the offer Bernd! I may have an old copy somewhere....

I really like that conveyor hidden in the weeds!
This thing would make a great gravel station for a small quarry.

I do have the Roy structure drawn up for laser cutting in both HO and N scale, based on the MR drawing. Did build a few test builds but never did write directions for it.

I regularly go to Leroy and Bergen area, to a small town west of them......Brockport NY, every 3 months to pick up all my ebay purchases from a friend.

I usually travel the Interstate 90 for a fast run or go US 104 route out of Lewistown NY.

Takes me thru Bergen. But I have never seen this structure, BUT I may have been speeding and paying attention to whats ahead rather on the sides.

Hoping my friend in Brockport can direct me to the location next time I am there.

Here's the Bergen location. It's right on Rt. 19 after you cross the main line tracks.

Here's the one in Leroy. It's also on Rt.19. It's before you cross the R&S tracks heading south on 19.

My friend Steve in Brockport on Campbell rd gave me directions and what to look for. Pretty sure I have looked at the stamped bricks metal building at the tracks, but like I said before. Watching traffic and paying attention to where I am going. Focused. I see a lot more when wife is driving but she hates driving when I am in car.....lmao

Next time I am there definitely will take camera and have a walk around the site. Not much left of period stuff around home except for our main street.

The one in Bergen has had the top removed and all the elevator stuff. All that is left are the two silos according to the satellite view.

This structure continues to get my attention. To all you New Englander's, I'm guessing by the size of that BMW bug on the side street, that those bricks are a 'manly' 12x12" on the face side, and guessing a tapered side to allow for the circular shape. We're only allowed wooden structures here. So, is that a good assumption?

Aw Jim,, that's the wife's VW Bug (aka Beetle). It's a "chick magnet" if a guy drives it.

I think I need to make a trip out there and get the size of those blocks. They could also be 18" X 18" which is a common size for those blocks. Just guesstimating.

Bernd, I hope they're 12x12, 18X25 would make those silos ~ 37.5', but knowing for sure would be nice.

Check out where that bug was made. I think BMW has made some of them. Around here, they are sold through the BMW dealership, not VW.

Jim

PS If you do go there. please measure that concrete base, I thought it was 2'.

I recall looking that term up when I bought the CD/DVD (The only one I ever bought)

thick as a brick (not comparable)
(simile) Very stupid; slow to learn or understand.
Translations
dumb as an ox

That fits me to a “T” when you start all them fancy cypherin’ and supposing....I quickly run out of fingers and toes....the brain throws a cog and all positive energy escapes...

What are the silos made of in the second building,LeRoy? Look much like wood as using in water tanks with all the metal rings.

I still think the first building, Bergen(?), is made from vitrified tile block cast in a curved shape. Some appear in the closer photos to not be the exact curve radius as the general structure.

I looked at the one map link posted earlier, got sent to Norway....
