After I seen Don's project below I happen to think I had some Pringles cans and decided to do up some grain silos. It was also a fun project. I still have some work to do on it and had no idea exactly how these worked. I happen to stop by my Father's place and mentioned the project to him and he told me all about it! I knew he did a lot of farm work in his life from all the stories and growing up on the farm when we were kids, but did not know he use to drain/shovel out rail cars to mix feed back in the day. So I watched some YouTube videos on it also and then went to work. I was able to locate a grain hauler rig 1:43 and 2 4 bay rail cars so I just need to finish up with a few more pipes for loading and unloading. I also have to make the train loading section more detailed so I still have a ways to go. Nephew is on his way over tomorrow so I have to get cracking! |
I was able to find two good used 4 bay grain cars. One was almost new and the other much older but it worked out well. Also got a 1:43 grain hauler rig. I was able to have both sides be used either way the Nephew wanted. He had a good time playing on Thanksgiving.
Here I was kicking myself for not getting more detailed with the fill station. I would have liked to add on a whole other section, but ran out of time.
