Dunellen Coal & Lumber

Posted by alanmende

This is my scratchbuilt model of Dunellen Coal & Lumber on my small shelf-type layout.  The prototype company didn't have coal silos, but I needed something to hide the track ending at a wall.  The model is patterned after Sargeant Brothers Coal in Somerville, NJ.  The 4 silos are 2-inch PVC pipe wrapped with Evergreen scribed styrene.  There are 38 bands around each silo that are made from 3 lengths of Evergreen .020 rod with three band connectors each (you do the math).  The office building is a Woodland Scenics gas station with a scratchbuilt roof and a full interior.  The billboard graphics are scanned and modified from an old matchbook cover.  The trucks are modified Lee Town models.
