Nice projects, Miles and Bruce.
Miles, I think some additionnal weathering, and the addition of a few signs would even improve your small service station.

Fredric, excellent Idea, I'll get right on it and replace the photos I have in there.

I'm glad I found this thread, since the majority of my stuff is scratch built. There's a lot of great work here.

This may look a lot like the Walther's Coaling tower but actually I was well into building this when Walther's announced theirs. Had already built a version in O scale before this one in HO.
Apparently, Walthers and I had the same issue of Mainline Modeler.

A very nice looking coaling tower, Terrell. How about posting some pictures of your other scratch built models.

Thanks, George. Another pic from the service tracks. Except for the proto 2000 SW and the Woodland Scenics Diesel fueling stand it's all scratch.

Thanks, Frederic. At last count, one the layout alone, I had 142 structures, of which 123 are scratch. So, yes, I have a few more to show. Though many were shown in last months "mini-scene" thread.
This is a coal tipple. I used the B.T.S. model as a reference but it is built board by board from styrene.

Great coal tipple, Terrell.
Someday, I'll have to count how many structures I have built from scratch. A nice number, but far below 123, for sure...

Thanks again, Frederic. You could say I have an addiction, I can't stop building things.

Terrell,

I fully agree with Christopher. You have shown us some very impressive and inspiring scratchbuilding.

Great work Terrell, the structures look just right in their setting.

Very nice looking tipple, Terrell. I like the way it fits on the hillside.

Since we are speaking of mines, here are two views of a mine complex I scratchbuilt a few years ago. The A-frame bridge on the right of the second picture connects the tipple to the covered "tunnel" on the left of the first picture. Apart from a small privy (hidden by the coal shed in the lower right corner of the first picture), everything was scratchbuilt in these two scenes. Scale is S.

Very impressive Frederic...The scene couldn't have been done better. It all fits together perfectly. Nice job...
