Bob, you gotta stop taking this hobby so seriously. I mean, lighten up and have some fun. Seriously, that's great.

Bob, Now I know why all my workers carry umbrellas.

How about some Pennsy for all you people that only read the Gazette. This is my scatchbuilt HO Denholm Coal wharf, that served
the 4 track mainline near Lewistown PA until 1956. During the height of operations,
This facility could coal, water, sand and lubricate and clean the fire of a loco in less than 5 minutes.


Nothing remains of the prototype today except two abutments and piles of coal in the weeds.


The model was made with Atlas trusses, Plastruct H columns , Micro Eng. beams, styrene, and a bunch of other odds and ends.

Chris

Chris, excellent prototype modeling, what is the tan section in between the trusses?
Is it part of a hopper system?
Thanks for sharing the shots, Pat

I finished up most of the work on my On30 scale 96' trestle. Some detailing left to do yet.







Here it is in place....just a temp install so I can remove to scenic in back of it.





Working on a Crib log bridge now.
Here are a few close shots of logs for it.







Gonna be a rottin little bugger!



Here it is so far, I have a few more rows to build logs for and install.

Terrific model and a great scene Chris. That's not my Pennsy prejudice talking either - I mean it. You have a nice selection of PRR motive power in the scene, what models are they?

Dave, that's an impressive trestle. Nice bolt detail and weathering.

Dave and Chris, great work.

Dave - I gotta ask: how long did that trestle take you?

Chris - I am a Pennsy. Where did you find your prototype information ... what did you build from?

Dave, that trestle is very impressive. Great job. The crib log bridge looks good too.
