MRR Contest Build 03, Passenger Cars 04
Things have slowed down a bit on the build, not from lack of effort, but because I have a few structures to design. The industries on my contest layout include a portland cement distributor, a plywood distributor, and a chemical company. I'm trying to create structures that have a real sense of "size" as they relate to the trains.
I've spent a couple hours on the computer designing the various buildings, and two hours in the shop getting the silo for the portland cement company prepared for casting. I am making a mold because I'd like to build at least a couple of each structure. If I end up shipping the shelf layout I'll have some copies for a layout of my own. I can also share the spares with other modelers. Who knows, someone might want an N scale cement silo. Given the amount of work to get the pipes blended, a one off seemed inappropriate.
Here's the latest video:
