To All: A recently scratch built project is a Taconite Plant for Dave Capron's Great Lakes Northern layout in Suttons Bay, Michigan, built gratis. The plant is made from cardstock covered with stucco, painted concrete color, and weathered. Note the many stacks on the roofs. The operation of this plant is as follows: Empties arrive from Cincy.OH at the Taconite Plan. Full loads out of the plant to West Yard in Marquette. Loads exchanged for empties on the ore dock, back to the yard & then on to the plant. All this involves a total of 120 ore cars in the movements, for one or two operators, during a nights operating session.
Dave has to add ballast, ground cover, etc. to the scene. Yours, Elvin Howland/E. St.Louis Rail Group Layout
