Artitec model will be releasing assorted loads,

for gondola car & European style 4 wheel.


Look under Trains, then train loads, section of their catalog.


3 loads of mine props or timber

3 loads of equipment, as below

ore cars and track panels

5 ore cars

3 diesel engines


Could be used for loads, or an abandoned mine scene.

Now THAT'S a cool kit!

Makes me want to build in HO again...well, maybe not.

But it's still neat.

Woodie

Woodie


I was glad the Canadian distributor did not have any at the train show here in Calgary,

the bank account would have taken a hit.


Need two sets,

1 for an HO layout, and 1 for a perspective mine on my On30 layout.

Si.

Would likely fit into a R116,
not sure how many pieces there may be as a kit.

Really stretching rubber gauging for 1/35th scale, as they are HO.

I plan to use a set, when I get one,
for an background abandoned mine scene on my On2 & 1/2 system.


Roughing up a set of plans for (lack of better term) a "baby" Coal mine tipple,
peak production was 5 boxcars per day, likely 2 to 3 cars other wise.

I wish I had taken more photos of the tipple at the time, early 1970s,
mine had been S/D for only 4-5 years at that time.

Hi Ken :wave:


Even though I was determined to quit 'rubbergauging' ...

... I just couldn't resist the temptation to have a go at a Tri-ang HO project, as well as the 1:35n2 :Crazy:


So I have been very slowly looking out for a few new Transcontinental items.

I did get a couple of the R116 Gondolas recently ( & a pickle-car ! ;) )

What to put in them ?

Coal, rocks, scrap-metal ... Who knows.

But I do like the look of the mining-loads ! ... Pretty cool.


I've had this photo of a tipple on my desktop for a while & am getting to like it.

Thought you might find some ideas from it.

It does look kinda smallish & quite an interesting prototype.





:moose:


Si.

Si.

Will need to copy and post a few photos of the Ajax Coal Mine,
located on a bald prairie bluff, with the mine itself about 200Ft below.

An incline brought the loads up to the tipple for hand loading into boxcars,
at least until 1946, when trucks took over, till 1967.


The Railway which served it was the "Medicine Hat Railway & Coal Co",
which interchanged with the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Motive power was an XCPR 1888 built 2-6-0.

Rolling stock was either a XCPR passenger car or caboose,
to take workers to the mine.

Finally the last load arrived from Artitec.

The 3 diesel's and oil drum's took a small amount of cutting and filing,

for the 3 load's to fit into 2 HO gondola's.

It makes a great load though.  :glad:
