A few of the details at the loco re-fuelling and sanding facilities at CC. They are very minimal really. A small open engine house, out of shot to the left. A scratch built sand drying house and an inspection pit between the tracks in the foreground. Tools on work benches and an EMD prime mover under the blue tarpaulin. (Kitchen towel soaked in pva then painted when dry, finally a flick over with a dry brush) The grounded reefer is a tool and spares store.


It is assumed that freight cars are repaired here as well. This gives an excellent excuse for all sorts of cars to turn up on the layout from time to time.


This time we see a Rock Island SW1500 idling sitting over the inspection pit.
