Layout Progress - 03 January 2015

Today I got time to laser cut the parts for the coal station platforms. Sorry for the lousy photos, but I did not check them before assembling the parts.

First up the top platform

Temporary on top of tower

After assembling the first top platform. I drafted up the remaining smaller platforms and cut them out.

Layout Progress - 29 December 2014

Today, I got around to assembly of the unloading pit and the two tower main structures.

I am happy with the unload pit but may redo the towers due to an small error on my part.

Layout Progress - 28 December 2014

Not sure if this is the last update for year 2014, so lets get started with this update.

Since the last update I have been working on the file to laser cut out the piece of the coal station. Today I got around to cutting some of the pieces, others are going back thru design and/or to 3D printing due to their small size.

First up the coal unloading pit, I am building this up in multiple layers of .06" taskboard.

Next are the piece for the main tower and base from .06" task board too.

Planning some assembly tomorrow.

Suncoast model make this tower in HO and O but not N, at least I have not found any so build it myself.
