          Haven't done a lot more than work on my coaling bunker. Started with an old Western Railcraft kit from the 70's and have been steadily fussing with it in little bits of time here and there when I can. Here's a couple of video's with it;

            That's going to be a nice centerpiece Alan.
            Looking forward to seeing the chutes attached.

          Today I did a bit of work on the coalchutes, which are multi piece puzzles. Two, or more, will be hinged.

            Thanks guys. It is making me think pretty hard, and search hard for a lot of little things to make it right. Challenge is the fun part of this one. Now to find some N scale 24" pulley wheels for the top of the chutes.......

                Thanks. I have the underneath lighting going now. Next up is upper level details, install light up there, and then tie that down.

              And here's a few pictures of the state of the bunker today, I spent a bit of time figuring out that the kit slider doors were un needed for an NP type coal chute. So those are removed, and a test fitting for the first chute was done. This chute is warped, so don't worry about that. I did figure out that the system I devised will work, so most of the chutes will function, if I can figure out how to do the pulleys and guy wires in such a way they won't get broken.
