Awhile back I build this Walther's Ash Tower





Today, I installed it and position the service track for it and the coal tower and sand house







Added a little ballast around it

Did not take any photos of the frame builds









































Not be able to find proper size smoke stacks, I drew up a 3D model and had them printed at Shapeways

I started drawing up the coaling tower over last couple of weeks that I am going to build for the layout.

This is a photo of the prototype tower



Suncoast model make this tower in HO and O but not N, at least I have not found any so building it is the path forward.Here the drawing I started couple weeks back



Today I got around to cutting some of the pieces, others are going back thru design and/or to 3D printing due to their small size.

First up the coal unloading pit, I am building this up in multiple layers of .06" taskboard.



Next are the piece for the main tower and base from .06" task board too.



Planning some assembly tomorrow to see how it goes together.

Today, I got around to assembly of the unloading pit and the two tower main structures.
I am happy with the unload pit but may redo the towers due to an small error on my part.

Interesting use of ceiling tiles, I never would have thought of that...

Great scratchbuilding in such a small scale!

What is going to make the turntable turn?
