Probably the last change to the module, I've moved the depot from under the road bridge to the corner. Having had to spread the boards for transport with signals there was now room for the depot. It looks far better here being set back further from the tracks. I reinstated the rear roof edge, never throw anything away!

The depot used be here where the small bushes are growing.

Log unloader

I've added some logs and waste to the unloading platform, something for the unloader to work with.

Scrap yard

Post by Mike_R » Mon Feb 06, 2017 10:05 pm

At the scrap yard there is now an excavator fitted with a grab. I made the grab from sheet brass, it is hung from a brass bracket that replaces the original bucket. The fingers could do with being thinner with the widest point nearer the tips, I'll try that on the two others I need for two more vehicles on my other module, 11th Avenue.

Hi Mike,

A nice rendition of a grab and with the additional activities the driver certainly now has his work cut out! - I'm assuming that, whilst I'm sure it's not beyond your capabilities, the loader isn't actually motorised!

Kind regards

No not motorised, I do have the bits to do a working rail crane, one day!
It is fully positionable, but with no driver in the cab I should leave it parked.
