Landscaping & Construction

This page is for after the plywood plains stage of the layout.

I have decided that the landscaping is going to have a Midwest feel, I am also going to try to fit a wooden trestle in somewhere if possible. I've started to collect a number of buildings and industries I want to model including the following.


Old Coal Mine: 130470

Old Concrete Mixing Plant: 130951

I am also going to model a roundhouse with servicing buildings and at least one coal tipple on a branch line, photos of the models to follow shortly.


Loading Chute: R8708



Cornerstone Series "Wood" Water tank

Appearing early in the 20th century, tanks like this were a fixture of railroad facilities until the last days of steam.
