New industry for Caron Road

January 31st, 2016

I’ve started work on a new industry in the Caron Road industrial estate area of the layout, Ryder Industries ‘Rochelle Logistic Center’, which is a cold storage facility which will accept unit trains of Trinity Reefers.  I’m still working out which kits to buy, but there will be much kitbashing involved to fit the kits into the space.

So far I have fitted the track in and installed the droppers.  Next is to install the turnout motors and glue everything down.  I also found time to build another block signal!

Here is the video:
