    What used to be called junk or scrap is now recycling.
    Boy this thread is being recycled well. Thanks for starting it, Candy Streeter.

    That scene continues to develop more realism every time I look in on this thread.
    I like your principle of working one scene at a time; that way it seems as if all of the details are installed prior to going on to the next.
    Nice Job

    Candy, an excellent scrap-pile! Another possibility to add to your scrap yard is this Container tilter - certainly unusual. I have never seen one before. Currently considering having a go at adapting a hydraulic crane with one of those shears on page 2 - not available in 1:87 tho' there is one in 1:50. Mine will be a simplified version.

    Candy,
    Your scrap yard is looking good !!! On the tilter, Louisiana Pacific used one to dump chip / hog fuel trailers at their planner/kiln in Sandpoint Idaho. Feb 1995 ( mill is long gone now ) I was working casual when the converyor from the pit failed and dumped the full 50 ft trailer full on the ground , 8 of us shoveled for 7 hours ... is a sight to see the whole truck and trailer being raised up in the air and the contents of the trailer dumps to the pit . Now they use the chips/saw dust for various other reasons ( depending on species) other than just burning in the boiler to make steam for the kiln. If you add a recycler op to your scene don't forget the wood grinder and the mix/sort pit for composting for commerical applications , and bagging cedar for pet bedding and such .

    This is a great thread for those wanting to model a scrap yard. I hope it keeps going. Here is some inspiration.

    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=34.01...0715,0.0012&sll=34.018258,-86.105669&t=h&z=20

    I would say this is good news for those that are newbies at handlaying turnouts. As long as your turnout functioned it couldn't look worse than the switch in the middle of this scene. haha ! Scroll to the left and you'll see this facility's little 44 tonner for moving gondolas around. I think this would be a great scrap yard to model if you had the space.

    My guess would be a heavily weathered jade green piece from the New York Central System, probably Pittsburgh & Lake Erie.

    I'm trying to make some smaller pieces for the pile to make it more realistic. I'm using almost the entire 2 by 4 foot area. I think to make a good yard you need space. I'll attach a picture soon.
