Work on the layout has resumed!
I was not happy with the original placement of the structures, so I am rearranging things. The freight house will now represent the original structure of the furniture manufacturer. The four-story brick/concrete structure will represent expansion of the furniture manufacturer's operations. The original structure will receive shipments, and the new structure will ship finished products. I've decided to add a grain elevator to the layout as well. Storage bins will be added to the scene in the near future. The public siding will be located on the right side of the layout, and will feature a concrete loading dock.
Until next time!
