I've applied the tar paper roofing.
I used surgical tape that I painted rust red.

I also weathered the corrugated metal wall.

The next step is to add the roof cap and tar seals and to build the various chimneys and pipes and then weather the roof.

The preliminary drawings of the mine that I will build in O scale.

I will measure the space available and make alterations where needed.

The winch house drawings.


Now I'll have to buy a LOT of wood!

As part of the history search for my railroad, I learned that historian and archaeologist Dr. Henry Jones Jr. had a copy of the Drumhead logo for my railroad: the San Miguel Central.
Luckily, I was able to exchange a copy in exchange for information on where to find a "safe warehouse" in the US, guarded by "top men"... 😜
