Finished my upgrade to the Epsom salt plant. The unloading area know has something the looks more realistic. For construction, I used the Tomytec triple tank kit, Legos for the pump, and sprue and styrene rod for the pipes.
The trees for this bank are pretty much done, there are about 20 or so. I’ll need to spin the model again so that I can start doing the other side. Still lots and lots of trees to make, but it is closing fast.
Took and old Atlas Shorty Tank car and converted it into a storage tank for my Epsom salt plant. Picked this up from the bargain bin at Autumn Rails last year. The tank car’s hand rails were 90% broken or missing. Ended up being repurpose something broken. The tank car has been trimmed down and putty used to fill the holes. Pipe is spru, hose is Atlas track feeder. Pump house from scrap from several kits.
Model train enthusiast James Risner used his collection of HO-scale railroad tracks and model trains to create this endless spiral on the floor of his living room. Powered by several HO-scale locomotives, Risner’s clever design (which can also work in reverse), allows the long train to enter and exit the spiral in a perpetual loop creating a hypnotic effect.
