Switch control installed.  Just need to hook up the control wire.

Framework finally up for housing the rotary dump.





The workers will be happy to be out from under the hot summer sun, and protected from the occasional strong winds.

A rotary dump, I think it's great when modelers go for something different. Your layout is really coming together nicely.. Larry G

I agree, the rotary dump will be a great addition. I eagerly await the next issue.

The rotary dump is a manually operated affair.  Making it a remote control automated affair seemed like way too much work.  You can see the cage that holds the cars in the photos, and ore is dumped into a bucket underneath.  It actually works much better than I expected.

Manual or automatic ... it is a great idea.

Actually, the rotary dump is kinda simple.  I used PVC fittings; 2 threaded female connectors, and 2 threaded male connectors.  I glued the male connectors onto a short length of PVC pipe, adjusted for the length of the dump bridge, and glued it onto the bottom of the bridge.  I threaded on the 2 female connectors at each end rather loosely and glued those onto the underside of the layout.  The bridge should rotate freely.  A handle made from PVC glued to the underside of the bridge and a simple throw bolt to lock it into the upright position.

Cheap, simple, and no mechanics to break down.
