Well this week all the structure kits arrived from MB Klein in the USA.
This marks the official beginning of the build, this is a mammoth task and will take up some considerable time to build and complete. There is going to be some serious detail added to this along with a lot of scratch building & kit bashing.
Tonight I actually completed the last of the building shells (I've been building them over the last couple of nights) and they are now on the layout. I'll be test fitting the structures and seeing how it all flows over the weekend.
The track work above is actually the original Intermodal Terminal track, it should only require a few minor changes. The Paper Mill kit will require the addition of a loading dock to the left of the structure (as can be seen its on the opposite side now) and this will be scratch built or kit bashed from another kit or Evergreen styrene.
The overall placement seems to be working well, I just have to check the processes and ensure that the structures flow and mimic the real thing. There will be a few more smaller buildings/sheds added, a lot more details, storage tanks, piping and associated equipment to the entire complex...
