Dave done good with this one.
I lost sight of my personal ambitions when it comes to the MIK. 2019, 2020, and 2021 strayed away from what I personally wanted to make the MIK about for me. After the first year I was in, I decided to make everything for my indoor layout. 2016 I made the engine house for it. 2017 I made the snow shed for it. 2018 I made, well started, the mine hoist for it. I want to get back to it.
I won’t have the grand scope on my indoor that I once did. But even the shrunken ceiling version I will implement the three projects. And then comes 2022. ROW. I love this topic anyway. As a former HO guy trackside detailing was as much or more important than the trains themselves. On the indoor I have always wanted it to be as much about the scenery and trackside details is a huge part of that. But on a ceiling layout what can you do that can be seen. Well actually tons of stuff and tons of stuff went through my mind.
In keeping with the theme and incorporating my 2016 engine house, I decided to model the sand house and tower.
I give you the Sinsley Mountain Logging and Mining Co. sand house and tower
