Hi Larry,
that is one serious downtown area.Nice work :bow: :bow:

A couple of questions if I may? In you last photo a couple of posts back, that looks like a "live" dumper to unload hopper cars of some type on the track closest to the front? Who makes the unloading track? what hoppers and loads do you use? How do you catch the dumped loads?

You have got a fellow "tipper-outer" curious,

Hi oztrainz,
Sorry to disappoint you, that is not a live dump track. It is a scratch built dummy dump track. During a switching session a empty hopper is pulled from the dump track and replaced with a loaded hopper car. This does require using the 0-5-0 switcher to reverse the cars for the next time I get the urge to do some switching. I am not big on realistic operation.
