My model rail has a wide range of industries that require rail traffic. (Apologies for the company names.)
Block & Son - Saw Mill
Rail Traffic is sawn timber out.
Construction: I used an assortment of wooden matchsticks and lolly sticks with a roof of corrugated plasticard, a short length of damaged track and a surplus part of an N scale truck as the log trolley.
Rather Hill Farm
Rail Traffic is milk and grain and cattle out.
Construction: the farm house, buildings and barns were made out of styrene covered with stone plasticard.
Rail Traffic is clay and coal in and bricks and tiles out.
Construction: the beehive kilns were made from the top section of a plastic beer glass, half of a clear plastic globe, styrene sheet from an eg box, styrene strip and another part of the plastic beer glass.
Iron and Steel Works
Rolling Stock: There are several special rail cars to transport molten iron, steel and slag in the works. All of these were scratch built and run on Z gauge track.
Rail Traffic is iron ore, coke and limestone in and iron, steel and slag out.
Construction: The Blast Furnace was constructed from a pair of styrene beer glasses and styrene tubing. Next to the Blast Furnace are air heaters that use the exhaust gas produced from the coke burnt in the Blast Furnace to heat the blast.
