Nice Catch there, Bruce.
Who says you need an expensive set up, no need for a switcher or a trackmobile, just a loader with a coupler on the rear, a dump bay for the conveyor and a siding.

A lot cheaper to model than a trackmobile too. Just find a suitably sized toy or model loader and add a coupler to the rear bumper and your in the sand business. :bounce1:

Of course the same sort or larger loader unit can be used for direct loading of coarse materials into hopper or gondola cars and be a perfectly legit practice. :hey:

I agree, but if you weathered the model as much as the prototype is weathered, then people would say you were over doing it. :dumb1:

Mark,I think that would depend on their knowledge of industries. I would be the very last to say thin metal industry buildings like those pictured would be over weathered.

I fully agree that is a perfect edge of the layout industry. Another modeling idea is that 0-4-0 "switcher" they use to move the cars.

Will have sand coming TO two bottle making plants on my layout so won't need all the "complicated" loading. There will only be a hole between the rail covered by a grate for unloading. Car movement will be by gravity & stopping by hand brakes on the cars but only pretending of course. >)
