One can build beautiful models of rolling stock; only by carrying people or goods do they gain a raison d’être. So one needs buildings. Back in the 1990s I’d already built some town buildings, inspired by Lucky Luke comic books. This time, I’d like to focus on details and use building techniques close to the prototype.
Granted, that’s not quite a building, however it’s a great opportunity to learn. On the one hand, there’s not too much to construct, on the other hand the technique of assembling bents will come in handy, for example for building bridges.
The loading ramp is made from beech and red cedar, prototypically assembled with threaded rods and pins. It serves as a variable industry spot until I can finish other buildings.
