Here are the aluminum sheets for the roof. Each sheet
was dipped in Ferric Chloride (acid) for a few second. This ate
away the aluminum almost instantly and rusted them up very quickly
Here, you can see the aluminum sheets, the button 2
are fully weathered by the acid, the top 1 is new.
The completed roof. Due to the flash of the camera,
the colors bled out, but, take it from me, the roof is beautiful.
All rusted, along with rust holes really show the age of the Coal
Depot. The roofing for on the small structure on the roof has
not been installed yet.
The completed and painted Coal Depot. The entire structure
was painted with 9 bottles of Floquil Oily Black with a brush.
Painting took an additional week, about 30 hours total for painting.
It was worth it though

A distant shot of the H-Yard and Coal Depot, here,
you can see the overall size of the Depot. It turned out to be
2'5" high, 2' long and 1'3" wide. A very nice addition
to the H-Yard.
A nice shot of Uintah #50 and Uintah #51 fueling under
the new Coal Depot. Now you can really see the size of the Depot
when compared to LGB's largest production locomotive!
