Started to assemble the Coal Mine model and am checking out where best to place it. Even though I never planned to add this particular model, luckily it fits quite well into the middle of the layout.
The plan is to build footbridges to the upper area where the minehead will be. Upper siding will be for worker passenger transport and materials, lower tracks for produced coal.
Low view from the front of the layout. This model is really well designed, and will require just a little work to make it more realistic. The roof in particular will be getting a new coat, but the wooden slats look very realistic and weathered.
