Salida 300 Ton Coaling Tower
Scratchbuilt by HalZ. The tracks were originally laid out by scaling the track centers from a photograph in the Trails Among the Columbine - Salida, which got us to within a 1/16th of an inch from scale. Hal started redrawing the Maxwell drawings to scale, and began building from a mock-up. Photos of the Minturn coaling tower are being used to aid in the detailing. The coaling tower is a scale 70' tall.
Salida NG Scales
Scratchbuilt by GaryM. The dual gauge has dead rails, to support a SG or NG switcher. The 'Live rails' are supported by I-beams between the ties, which carry the load to load cells for the NG cars only. The design is based on a ATSF prototype plan and is placed in the yard where the original NG scales were.
Salida SG Roundhouse IHC kit, modified by HalZ. Under construction, to be painted. Temporary backdrop by KentH.
