    I wonder of Walthers intends to bring out their new HO cement plant in N-scale?

    I couldn't wait! I'm built my own!

    (That's me behind the module.)

    That conveyor's going to be a real eye-catcher.

    Hope to see more pics as work progresses.

    Paul:

    Is that resin or plastic? Looks kinda scratchbuilt, so just wondering.

    Nice to see some pictures of industries that are definately dominating the trains.

    N Scale Architect has a lasercut Cement plant called "The Shuey Cement Company, It's a great kit to build and is quite time consuming..

    The cement plant was made by a friend from cardstock. It looks very effective and gives me reason for the two bay hoppers. I have a switcher that switches between this plant known as Sherman Cement Works and the limestone plant Stringtown quarry. I also run box cars to the cement works to pick up bagged cement.

    Below is a picture of the quarry area

    Colonel, my old eyes must be deceiving me, but it sure looks like you have a jet fighter plane crashing into the water tower of your cement plant! Just what am I supposed to be seeing there??? :eek: :eek: [​IMG]

    I think the jet is landing at the airport just behind the cement plant.

    This is a picture of my cement facility.

    Landing?? I'm not a pilot, but that seems like an awfully steep angle to approach with... :eek: [​IMG]

    Are you sure it's not rolling in to bomb the place? [​IMG]

    Relax guys. That's just some hot-shot-fighter-jock, lookin' to impress some babe in the office typing pool. You can bet the base CO is not going to be one bit happy about all the telephone calls he's about to receive.

    For Jock's sake, I sure hope she's worth it. It's going to be a long time till he collects any more flight pay.

    Rett,

    The 3-bay hoppers were released by Delaware Valley (now owned by Bowser I believe). In some of the pictures there are some Kato 2-bay hoppers. I like the 3-bay hoppers for the early 1980's time periond.
