Quick Pre-vacation update

Going on a cruise from Miami through Panama Canal to LA 10th - 27th so wont be able to do any updates. Wanted to post a few pictures before I left.

First got the z scale PowerMax in:

Here is a top view of the PowerMax on a self healing mat for measurements and a HON3 truck for comparision.

Same from side.

Scratch building Coal House:

Laying out foundation and floor joists. Used a lot of techniques I learned here from reading the great posts on the Forums.

Foundation and floor joists built. This design is for Idaho Springs and is a composite of several sources. 32' by 10' 4 bin. Set for Gondola (C&S 3 & 4 board) height for unloading by hand. Wagon loading for distribution will be on the other side.

Side view of foundation, joists and flooring.

This is the rail side wall. 6x6 corners with 4x4 external studs. loading hatches are being build as you can see.

That's it for now.

Thanks Cameron
