|Transferring loadsI just had to build a Campbell Scale Models produce shed several years
ago. This is how it fits on the layout as if it could be used for receiving
loads from a box car such as the one seen here. The loading platform is
long enough to place three box cars for unloading.
There was a situation in Minneapolis were forty box cars could be
unloaded at the Farmers Market East of Lyndale Avenue and North of Glendale
Avenue. I don’t think anyone would model that as thirty five feet of layout
would be required.
Just for the heck of it, I’m going to give the conductor of this train
the job of unloading three cars of boxes from box car to the platform without
knocking anything over. I’ll be nice, there will only be a few boxes per
car. Will he know enough to open those box car doors at some point before
the train arrives there?
