Finally, Santafewillies layout thread


there is still over 150' of main line on each level which I am thankful for.
Willie - I'm no mathematician, but I've calculated, if the layout were real, your two levels would be about 4.94 miles of mainline track. Does that sound about right.
I'm always very surprised at what HO track adds up to in real life. I've probably only got a couple of city blocks worth on my layout, if that. In my wife's mind, I've run out of real-estate.
 
I'm ready for the next installment here, now that the forum seems to be back to normal and picture uploads are no longer hit or miss. We left off at the Sherwin Williams Paint Distributor in the Maultown Industrial District. Next door to it, across the rail corridor is Whitaker Bros Printing. They do bulk printing and receive incoming barrels of ink and rolls of slick printing paper. Some jobs are also shipped out by rail as well.

I still need to scenic this end where that tall structure referenced back in post # 148, once stood. But that's a project for another time.
The structure itself is a City Classics kit called Smallman Street Warehouse. It's a great looking kit and the large window expanse called for an interior. But what to put in there? I happened to have two old circuit boards that I was going to cut up for "junk" elsewhere, but I decided to use them here without modification.

So I added a few figures and made one into the second floor.

The figures didn't really matter so I used some cheap Chinese made ones that lack the fine detail that domestic ones have. Here's the third floor. I reversed the orientation to avoid the repetitious look.

Once enclosed, it looks good.

Moving over to the right (North), is another large industrial structure that has no name or function yet. It is designed to be a distribution center of some sort. It's made with lots of Pikestuff modular walls.

Next to it is Citywide Beverage Supply, which we'll explore in the next installment.

See you next time and thank you for looking.
