Thanks Jacques.

I wish we could get new members to post more photos, but some are limited by the computers and servers that they use. Using a photo host such as Photobucket, or Flicker still works, last that I tried, but some think that that is too much trouble. Some years back it was the only way we had, and we had plenty of posts. Has it's drawbacks, granted, but it's better than no photos at all.

I downloaded Firefox just to make it easier to post photos. It works great and is very easy.

Thank you Dwaine and Reg  for taking some of your time to "visit" my micro-layout . The teamtrack loading platform and the  malt silos are scratchbuilt. I'm proud of that layout because I was able to complete it  ( I'm the kind of person who not always finish a project  ).
I'm working on a new micro-layout  about the Belgian vicinal steam tramway  ( SNVC  ) circa 1930. I Have to scratchbuilt everything . In the meantime here is another picture showing the middle part of the layout.

Jacques

I forgot to mention the size of the layout:
60 cm x 30cm x 20 cm   ( 24" x 12" x 8"  )
Here is a view of the right side with the freight depot ( Heljan B641 )
The tunnel is a "dummy"  , the track stops there

Hi Jacques and all,
I can remember when your layout was being built and it was discussed on the Yahoo Small Layouts Design Group. You have finished it off beautifully. Well Done and thanks for the photos,

Thank you Si. and John for taking some of your time to visit my layout.
John, what scale are you modelling now ?

Now, the details.Let's start with the backdrop, I drew and cut  stencils representing various silhouettes of buildings , hills  . The stencils were then used to airbrush the backgrounds in several  layers.
Jacques

Hi Jacques,
At present my modelling is centred around 1/43rd scale O-16.5 narrow-gauge representing a 2' gauge colliery self-acting continuous-rope incline that operated locally from about 1880 to 1955. Part of the build saga is on here at http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=6338&forum_id=20&page=1 I still have a fair bit of stuff to do yet to bring this thread fully up to date.

Now back to your Canadian Brewery layout.
For further inspiration , if required, may I offer these 2 photos from 2013 of what I was told was a brewery in Quebec city:


and a closer view


Allowing for some selective compression, your Molson brewery looks pretty close to the mark, :bow::2t:

Thank you John for posting the 2 pictures. The only big brewery I know in Quebec city is Molson and generally Molson has a biiiig sign on their buildings so I'm not sure where that picture was taken. But for sure it  should  look nice on the backdrop of a layout.

Here is a picture of the overpass., it crosses the layout diagonally and belongs to the competitor  CN. One end is hidden by a building and the other one by a tree. The malt silos are owned by Canada Malting  ( big geographic compression here  )  and are scratchbuilt : half cardboard tubes  coated with spackling compound.

Jacques

Hi Jaques,
From memory and checking the sequence of photos leading up to them the brewery photos were taken as we were walking down Rue des Remparts, just downhill and around the corner from here


I got the grain terminal at the same time as I got the brewery. We were just higher than the roofs of the lower level of the Old Town below the ramparts


If there was a sign on the building it may have been on the other side of the building. We were on foot and didn't get that far across Quebec to see the other side of the brewery. We were there in early September 2013.

Let me know if you think you can use any of the photos. the full size photos are about 5Mb each. PM me your email address and I'll send them if they are likely to be of any use. Only too happy to help,
