      Tell your little man to stand off to the side of that handle when he frees it (probably will want to do that with a foot, while he hugs the post). I imagine the weight of your unobtainium will kick the door open, once the handle starts moving.

       

      On your slope sheet; they have a dappled metalic paint that might convey a battered sheet as a base for your rusty scrapes.

      Got the trucks and couplers on. Time for an inaugural trip around the layout:

       

       

      Sadly, the bents on the mine trestle are too close to the track. I'll have to see if I can move those back without destroying the whole thing :-(

      I see there's a missing rivet on the hopper.

      Excellent build Jim, and the catch on the hopper looks like it'll work well
