Took a vacation day and made some actual progress on Fish Pier.  I finished assembling the building and now am working on "blocking" - figuring out placement of other buildings and items to have the proper visual effect.  This is loosely based on the Union Freight railroad running through Boston as well as inspired by John Pryke's work and book.  I have lots of detailing and painting work ahead...



The fishing boats moor along Fish Pier to unload their fish onto scales and into the warehouse.

A rail spur on the other side allows a reefer to be spotted here for loading.

Atlantic avenue runs in front of the pier and into some downtown stores.

little more progress on the cement plant. been working on roof, office building, and placing the kiln building on layout also figuring out where other support buildings will go.  i decided to make the roof an under construction project so more of the detailed inside was visible. i built some scaffolding to support their project just need to get some roof workers on the job. 0BB114F5-51DF-45C9-B5E2-0342DDA2ABA745DD046A-2870-4F9B-B883-838A0D1DA3FB133FE7E0-124D-4FAF-9616-AA8674263320F1664BE5-B516-4919-BB47-10C095C845DC

Outstanding detail! I mean forreal forreal. The water treatment plant, GEEZ!

coach joe i’m thinking of having a quarry pit in the far right/back of layout. materials will also be brought in by barge to the dock. there will be a train line to carry out cement both bagged and hoppers

dave the circular farm that looks like a treatment plant is actually the wet slurry that is mixed and feed into the cold end of kiln. it comes out other end as clinker once the moisture is removed by the kiln.
