A new industry I want to put on the layout is a wood chip loader. I've always wanted one but could never find the right spot. I even did some research and thanks to some guys on Trainorders.com, I was shown pictures of a small loader in the northwest. The facility is hundreds of yards away but the loader is across the road. Mine will be across the tracks.
|C424 #292 stops on track #5 beside the grassy meadow. I will tone this down a little with bushes and darker grass materials.|
|BB #3002 waits for it's next move.|
|The conductor prepares to climb down off of #292 for a little break.|
|Looking for that dirt/ballast/sandy parking area. I believe I have found it.|
|This loader is pretty close to what Walthers has. I already have it built!|
|Talk about the facility been away from the tracks.|
|I would send the loader pipe across the tracks to the left at and angle. The perpendicular angle does look right. I've been struggling with the bridge scene in the background. That's also perpendicular and harder to fix.|
