2 industries on the Boothbay Railway Village layout. Burgess & Forbes paint factory was a real business in Portland, ME in the 1920s, but this is a freelanced structure

Wirthmore Feeds is located next door

Show me some more industries

On my layout, the biggest industry, by far, is GERN Industries' Port Maitland plant...

...what's modelled represents about a third of the plant, and the flux mine, under nearby Lake Erie, isn't modelled at all.
It's an enormous traffic generator....covered hoppers, tank cars, boxcars, and, on flatcars, processing machinery.

Just remember, everything is 3% better with GERN!

Lots of heavyweight mail and baggage cars in this train, which has just passed through Lowbanks, but there don't appear to be many passengers in the lone rider-coach which is bringing up the rear...

OK, well, not your usual HEP, but what I call a HEPage.  A head end power car/baggage car combined, maybe kind like a cabage?

I needed a HEP car for business trains, pulled by a loco that didn't have "hotel" power.

More HEP please, or head end cars.

This was originally an Athearn Pullman, but is now a pretty-good representation of the real CNR car which bore the same number...

These "Flexi-Vans" are a later-day head-end car. Some were used for U.S. Mail. There's PRR head-end cars on the next track.
