Hi Kevin :wave:

That looks about 100 :moose: s AWESOME !

You're gonna HAVE to start a New Thread with that great build underway !

Really want to hear more about it & see how you get on.

It would be great to see all the research photos & stuff in a New Thread as well.

You could probably Paste over what you have put here as a start.

Is your model HO scale Kevin ? ... You didn't actually say.

You have hit a home run with, first you muck up.
How large a space does the complex fill?
I agree Mike’s plans are outstanding.
Do you have the complete set of Gilpin Books from Mike.

Very nice creek retaking wall.

Keep sending photos.

Just a guess, but the tall structure above the mill could have been a transformer building.
The H fitting appears to have power lines going to it.
From what I've seen of various mill's, the transformer building or yard were usually located away from the main building's.

Thanks guys!

I model in HOn3 with HOn3 for the Gilpin tracks for the mill.
From end to end the model takes up 3 feet 7 inches or a little over 109 cm for the rest of the world.

I will try to post on another thread that I had already started but in the wrong location because I didn't know what I was doing.

I don't have any of the Gilpin books from Mike,
just some plans but am relying on reference from the two Gilpin books and Keith's thread.

Hi Kevin :wave:

I moved your original Thread into the 'HO Narrow Gauge' Forum HERE. :thumb:

Also pasted your Post with photos in ^^ above for you.

Also pasted in your replies above ^^ here as well.

You can of course EDIT any Posts, if you wish.

I just pasted over what you'd done, as a good start. :cool:

Please Post LOTS MORE as well.

I'm sure we could all stand to see many more angles & descriptions from your ACE mock-up !

If you want to change the TITLE and SUB-TITLE of the Thread, just ask.

You might have some different ideas now.

Personally I like to see full names like 'Colorado & Southern', not just C&S.

Just me though, maybe you think the same, let us know.

Looks good to me !! :)

All the best.
