Today I was able to get a few things done and down on the layout before the approach of another winter storm. One job completed was the addition of a piece of another loading ramp kit by Blair Line to finish the extension of the original Alloy team track dock:
Next, I was able to place the new Fowler Plumbing Supply in its place, and filled in around it with grey ballast as gravel. The area in front between the building and track will have another loading ramp from Blair Line for unloading of supplies by boxcar. The small forklift in the photo is here for use on the loading dock. Due to the cold weather of course I wasn’t able to glue anything down.
Finally, I picked up five inexpensive waist aprons from Home Depot for the operators to use. I believe these were only $1.48 a piece:
Stay tuned for more updates as more buildings are started and completed, plus the other details placed on the layout…
