Getting the mine building built

Lots of fun on the Lyon Valley Northern this week. My new GP40-2W arrived and it is great. Got operating ditch lights, sprung trucks and even a GM number plate.

I was down in Syracuse at a train show and picked up this Resin Flat. Here are some shots of the painting and weathering with Bragdon powders.

Today I was busy working on this coal loader and I think I will run a conveyor from the backdrop to this puppy. It has promise. I mocked it up to see what it would look like.

Hope all is well with everyone. I am of to CFB Petawawa this week. Be back on Friday. Just in time for train operations.
