I was a young fella when I built the model,  :)
now getting closer to  :old dude:  status.  :)


Need to work out how to mount it into the layout,

so that it can be removed for a couple of shows later this year.


Figure I will at least pack it out,

for the joint Canadian Pacific / Great Northern Historical meet this Sept,

along with my Rotary and a few pieces of Kaslo & Slocan Railway rolling stock.

If your contribution to ANGC 2019 is any guide,

you have not lost your touch.

" Will have to forward a few photos,

of the items I have managed to build for the interior "



Hi    Ken  :wave:



You can tell I'm a dedicated Fan !  :bg:

( I'll be asking you for signed photos next )  ;)


I saved a copy of the 'Powerhouse Plan', from wherever you Posted it, ages ago ...  :old dude:





Here's another copy of the front view of the model, for a quick comparison.  L:




All kinds of interesting stuff going on inside !  L:  :brill::!:

I actually got a round to having a good look at the Powerhouse Floor Plan last night.  :time:



Have you made ... 'V' - Charging Rack (Miners' Lamps) ... yet ?  ???

Not needed in ... 'G' - Toilet ... As I see that has its own dedicated window !  :P



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:



Si.

Si.

One of the interior items I have built, is the battery charging rack,

also the original main panel, and exhaust stack.


In various stages of construction, are the Fairbanks-Morse engine,

Ingersol-Rand 2 stage compressor, Westinghouse Generator,

and Pelton-Doble Turbine.


I am also working on the Pelton Governor,

which is the smallest piece to get done,

lots of small detail required.


The WC emptied into the runoff from the P-D Turbine,

so no concerns with blockage there.

Hi Ken  :wave:


1 question I sometimes end up pondering.  L:

Not said in the Posts so far ... But what size ? is the diorama base ?  ???

Just 1 of those regular oDd things that keeps me awake at night !  ;)  :y:  :java: :moose:





I could have a better guess by looking at the plan & thinking S-scale of course ...

... but I'm gonna have a go at appearing  :dope:  & guesstimate a round 12" x 18"  L:


:doh: :java:


Si.

Si.

Width is 13 In, Length is 24 In, Overall Height is 12 In

I believe I can fit it into the layout.


Although the plant was not served by rail,

I plan to add a spur to deliver fuel oil to the plant,


Need to justify some of my tank car fleet,

unlikely that there would be more then one tank car delivered per year,

if that!.

L:

I will also model a bulk oil facility, to serve the other mines in the area.

Hi Ken  :wave:


GEE ! ... I nearly went for 15" x 24" as my guesstimate ...  L:

... but somehow I seem to always  under-guesstimate  things like that.  :us:


I always draw in too many switches in small track plans as well ...  :bang:

... I'm trying to stop it ... When I find they won't darn fit, it hurts ^^ my head !  ;)



Your tank car fleet ...  :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:  ... Eh !  :P



I have a feeling my On30 'Bachmann' old time RIVETED tank car ...  :shocked:  :P

... might be about to get a NEW frame for Wolfys 1:35n2 liquid loads !  :mex:


:java::moose:   Liquid coffee concentrate probably .  .   .    .     .      .       .        .


Si.

Si.

Will dig out a couple of photo's of the mine and mill that the plant was built for,

to supply air and power to, and post them on.


Way more then I have room to attempt to model  :bg:  the complex.

Figured I would post a couple of photo's of the Silversmith Mine and Mill.

#10 level of the mine and upper terminal of aerial tram (circa 1930).

Cook house and dining hall on old Slocan Star Mill cribbing,
to the right the former power plant for the mill, hydro and steam.
