Good stuff Neville!

When I worked at the local Navy yard (NNSY) here in Portsmouth,
I was always amazed by the number and types of cranes they used.

Each pier had a gantry crane or 2 plus smaller ones moving about. 

Then there was the "Hammerhead" at 260' tall:

I like cranes.

That is a wonderful crane in your photo.
I have seen similar cranes like that in Britain, though not as big.

Only two years ago I snapped one that the locals were wanting to restore,
but were having trouble raising the money.

The 'small" service crane on top of the gantry would be a time consuming model in itself.
Looks like a small control cab sticking out the front, you would need it there for sure.

I'm in the process of building a Steel Mill,
so you can imagine how many cranes are involved, which suits me.

Thanks.

Steel mill rolling stock, only used for internal moves around the mill site,
mainly slabs and ingots.

They are Lionel toy train Flats and gondolas converted to scale wheels and Kadees,
pictured at the Rolling Mill (under construction).

There are many "toy items" that are useful for "scale model" fodder...
you just need to keep your eyes open when visiting the grocery store, pharmacy, and even Wal Mart.
I have found neat "details" in the toy sections for both 1:48 (also 45 & 43) and even for my 1:35 projects.
There are useful items at the fabric store which I look for when shopping with Pam or Barbara.
You can just never tell what may be lurking underneath horrid thick paint or inside some small toy thing.
Imagination is all it takes.

Hi everyone.

It's been a long while between posts,
but here I am back again and with a changed layout.

It is now almost a "Steel Mill Layout",
but parts of it can still be used as a common carrier railroad if I wish.

You might have seen it on another Forum and I apologise for that,
any photos I post here in the future, will be fresh new photos not seen anywhere else.

When I get a few minutes I will keep in touch.
I am just back from a long walk in the bush and am just settling in to "home" life again.

See you soon.

Nev.

Hi Nev  :wave:



HEY ! ... Long time  :time: no see !!  :us:



The only problem I had with your previous layout ...  :P

... was that we never saw enough of your great pics. of it !  ;)



But I know the feeling of being pushed for time.  :f:




















I took the liberty of 'merging' your original Joining Freerails Thread ...  L:

... & your great photos from awhile back  (which I like cos it gives folk an idea of the style you've been going for) ...

... with your comments on the development, of a much more 'steel mill' layout.  :thumb:



We have been doing a bit of 'merging' lately generally ...

... as it helps getting  C :cool: :cool: L  stuff 'rounded up'  :cb:  & in 1 place sometimes.



Anyways ... WELCOME ! back Nev ...

... & don't forget to spoil us with loads of your HOT ! :!: new steel mill pics.  :boogie:



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

Hi Si.

You can be sure I will have plenty of photos coming up, lots of things going on at the moment.

I am changing the Blast furnace yard throat at the moment, to make it more efficient.

I will have before and after photos soon.

Thanks for your call.

Nev.
