Hi BNSF, I don't know if this is your cup of tea, ;) although it's far from finished its an " Empties in / Loads out" concept with trackage to the coal fired power plant in back of it. A hilly countryside will hide the plant from the mine (hopefully :confused: ) and a bit more trackage will be added for the mining materials.


Excellent and beautiful work Harry, I like it

Cheers Willis
