A mock up

After cutting all those sleepers from the frets and completing the 3 extra tippers, I took the opportunity to try the buildings in place.

I think I might actually buy another silo (one for cement, one for water). I also await the arrival of the grounded container that will sit under then new gantry (which itself requires some chain to finish it). Also remember that the track next to the hopper will be elevated.

The Ruston is complete save for couplings and details to be added after painting (oh and pickups).


  1. I would think water would be kept in a tank, rather than a silo. An Airfix water tower on a brick base perhaps? Grounded tank wagons?

  2. Now I like the sound of that. Will seek one out.
