Hi everyone,
as promised here is my latest MOC called Coal District  :classic:

Posted Image


After having built several steam locomotives I felt the need to have a charging coal station.
Inspired by the draft of Reinhard "Ben" Beneke and other models on the web I built mine coal deposit.

Posted Image


Enjoy the tour...

Very nice work there LT12V you have captured the look of a typical German railway "Bekohlungsanlage" (Coaling Stage) really well, I also like your coal wagons they remind me a lot of ones made by Brickshelf user Grunneger http://www.brickshel...y.cgi?i=3374350 but yours have nicer ends with the tile cladding emulating planking as well as a spot for the shovel. Out of curiosity is this going to be part of a larger scene with a locomotive depot or will it be a stand alone model.

You hit the bullseye, this station will be part of a train layout but I've to work a little bit more to complete my project  :sweet:

It is not clear if you spend the much of your time taking photos or building your excellent mocs!  :grin: Great work! :thumbup:  
The coal  supply station is one of the most appealing structure and the Vollmer large one is very inspiring.
A beautiful complement for your dampflocks.
How is it far your loco roundhouse?  :wink:
Let's enjoy your shared photos!

fantastic work,

but why the double crossover track almost instantly after a point, it seams unnessasary, you could use one or the other, is it for show or is it how they are in real life? just curious

This is a really well made coaling station. I've been wanting to build one myself but have too many incomplete LEGO projects to start a new one just yet. I'll certainly be taking a very close look at yours when I get around to building one myself. I really like the use of the black diagonal mesh fences as walkways, and I'll probably use that technique myself now.

This is wonderful!  :thumbup: I love it!  :wub: I can’t wait to see your entire layout when it is completed, but I imagine that will take some years and are they ever really completed? That’s the joy of it though.

Wonderful work 'LT12V'. As an ex-coal miner, living in a state with massive coal seams I can really appreciate this build. The scoop and loading statin are great, what year are they designed from? I fully plan to incorporate coal in designing my new layout, starting with the Gold Coal Mine. Keep up the great work   Posted Image

Very nice MOC - you catch the ambiance very well!
I am a little concerned about the working conditions:
some workers are standing in the coal with the crane head coming dangerously close!
Hopefully the labour inspection will understand...

Wow, this is great.
The whole scene is perfect. I wonder why do not see more of these. It is such an essential part of the steam era.
And I especially like the way you did the crane. It really is a beauty.

LOL!  :laugh:
The real problem is that the crane operator also carries glasses!  :devil:  :wink:
