Default My Upstate NY Quarry Module Build in N-Scale

First of all I'll show you this close up of a back ground building I put together today.



This is the prototype The Jointa Lime Scale Office




I have a maintenance garage to do in the same down size.



Both buildings will be for the back ground on the far side of the quarry. Behind these buildings will be some Building faces only as a backdrop.

The Quarry is where I get my material for the Ballast mixture that I sell
www.KLM-Enterprise.com



I started the module in early spring and the next set of pictures you will see the embankment size #4 Rip Rap, the ballast size #1 N-Scale and the scenery work I have done so far. I hope you like it.
















Behind this module will be the quarry module that will be a forced prospective model
of a condensed rendition of Jointa Lime Stone Quarry in Glens Falls NY.

Now owned by Jointa/Galusha Inc. If you google Warren st. , Glens Falls NY and use the satelite view you will find that CPRail runs between the Hudson River and the Quarry I am modeling .

On the opposite side of the river you will see the New Quarry that is enormous in comparison. The same company owns both of them . The one I am modeling is no longer being mined. I want to be able to recreate the old quarry dating back to possibly
the 60s early 70s when The D&H still was the RR .

To be continued ... thanks for viewing

The twelve-inch-to-the-foot stuff cuts into modeling time quite a bit. Let us know when you've got more pictures! The detail shots look great.

Well I did take a look at the foam board for the quarry walls that still needs to be carved, just need to get at it.

I have been working on some more buildings for the quarry and I came up with a similar drawing that I have seen used in other scales. Here it is.

old design- Here is what I am almost finished building .
Similar to other mining buildings I have seen but not copied exactly.
I think they were built in thousands of different configurations big and small.



This is the old design drawing


new design- This design will work out much better and had good practice building the first one.

Great building. I love all the english measurements, much nicer than Metric and I still use them here in England against the push to go Metric (yuck).

What are the differences between the two buildings that would make a difference? I know next to nothing about quarries and such. The original looks great.

this secong building is longer in the front and will over hang over a drop off where a loading track will be , I didn't think of
that feature until after I had already started,. the new building will also have more detail going into it , I am almost finished
