Back when I built the Turtle Creek Central I thought I had done fairly well. But operations revealed that I had a switching area I could not see from the control station. View of the Macie Moly Mine yard could not be observed. Thoughts went to a walk around throttle but research showed the equipment needed was way out of budget to convert the throttle and power pack to a walk around. Back behind the cliff and the free standing mesa is the Macie Moly Mine. 100_1714-2 by John Moore posted May 1, 2022 at 3:08 PM The solution I came up with was remove the mesa and install a separate power pack controlling the mine. Cost was simply one new Kato power pack. While at it I would install a small mine yard for car repair and storage and an engine repair and car shop. I already had a box of surplus Kato unitrack and turnouts by Atlas, Peco, and Kato. 100_1715-1 by John Moore posted May 2, 2022 at 5:16 PM I just needed to get an engine house and decided on a 2 stall by Pike Stuff (Rix) with one stall serving as engine repair and the other as car repair. Enough room for four tracks with two serving as car storage for about 10-12 short ore cars. Directly under this is a support cabinet with drawers where the new controller will go and easy sight to the mine. 100_1717-1 by John Moore posted May 4, 2022 at 2:39 PM While at it I have never seen a cliff that did not have a water seep at the base. So I installed that and to take water from the mine since most mines need ground water pumped out. Establishing the drainage ditch and then running it through culverts under the car storage tracks. And my ample parts boxes had some concrete culverts laying in them. 100_1724-1 by John Moore posted May 7, 2022 at 2:20 PM This shot shows the culverts installed. Since I am doing a water pour here a good seal is needed. 100_1728-4 by John Moore posted May 7, 2022 at 7:40 PM Installing some ground cover before the water pour. 100_1729-1 by John Moore posted May 8, 2022 at 1:58 PM The water pour is done and this stuff tends to seep up a bit but some ground cover takes care of that issue. 100_1737-1 by John Moore posted May 10, 2022 at 8:24 PM And the material used for the water pour from Home Depot at $25. Very low odor if any and sets rock hard in less than 24 hours. 100_1733-3 by John Moore posted May 9, 2022 at 11:49 AM I used two of these kits for my large harbor and waterfall and stream. Been in place now for 5 years and cleans easily with a damp rag. Stay tuned a part 2 is coming.
