More Piles...

... for the scrapyard. Both small and bigger made of Sculptamold.

The big with a core of wood and backside of Styren to fit the edge of the module.

With som paint it looks like this. Still missing a lot of small pieces of scrap...

Kowal Mfg...

... are an new industry on the home layout. A big manufacturer of Barbed wire sending it westward by train. I'm using a Walthers "Allied Rail Rebuilder" and a Faller "Gantry Crane". There will also be propane unloading equipment and a storage tank on the other side of the track at the "old facility"

A rerouted coaltrain...

...passes through Crawford Junction.

A small test run after changing to MTL-boggies and Weighting. The most of the coal hoppers are far to light (10-12g instead of 25-30g pro NMRA). Still some work with weathering the cars inside and out...
