Si.

Wonder how long the Eureka Mine people have been waiting,

for you to deliver their chairs and other supplies.  L:


The railway trestle is the Nakusp & Slocan Railway (std. gauge),

line to the yard in Sandon.


The flume structure is likely the tailings flume from the Ruth-Hope mill,

which emptied into Sandon Creek,

tailing ponds were in the future for containment.  :us:


Across the valley the grade for the Kaslo & Slocan Railway (3 ft gauge),

can just be made out.



As far as projects go, way too many,

I would like to at least get a complete loop down.


Currently working on a drop bridge across the layout entrance,

still a few bug's to work out.  ???

Hi    Ken  :wave:

Drop bridge  L:  Eh!  :brill:  :dt:


Probably not in the least bit helpful (as usual !)  :P


But ...  ;)

Dan Aykroyd got across the 95th Street Bridge ...





... without even having to close it !  :shocked:


:cool: :cool:

" Is this the new Bluesmobile or what ? "

" Fix the cigarette lighter ! "


:doh:  :java:


Si.


I know !

He wasn't in an On2½ Mogul ...

... & you aint modeling Chicago !

:bang:

Si.

The bridge has 50 inches of clearance,
length of opening is 40 inches.

So not necessary to keep opening for access,  :2t:
for minor work on the layout.
Only if I need to provide access for building material.  :glad:


I did remove the wye I had, kept bumping into it,
and not feasible to move yard to provide clearance.

:bang:

Will add a section to widen,
and then install a turntable and engine house,
based on the setup at Three Forks, in it's place. 

:)

Sounds good    Ken  :thumb:  Eh! 


The small forklift delivering your next 'square-yard' (1x1x1) of FRock foam ...  :mex:

... should get through OK !  :shocked:

(delivery by mule takes ages !)  ;)  :slow:





So, does this 50" clearance mean ...  ???

... you've got wall-brackets, or something, 4' high, all round the room ?  L:


:java::moose: :dt:


Si.

Si.

Most of the layout is on benchwork,

for the entrance drop-bridge, it has been anchored into the wall.  :2t:


I need to "STOP"  :bang:  :bang:  modelling rolling stock,

and get more track laid.  :)


Never will have enough track for all my rolling stock,  :bang:

much less motive power.


The last layout could handle 25 to 30 car trains,

but no room for scenery.  :Crazy:


I enjoy doing scenery, so it had to go !
