Progress on the Barite crusher / loader
I had always figured that these structures would need to be removable and they are. What I have noticed while conducting switching operations on the siding and the industries at the rear of the scene was that I would sometimes bump these taller structures from their locations. So I needed a way to make them be more firmly in place yet still removable.
car puller. There is the same kind of magnet as in the photo above inside this covered hopper car and the black cable (thread) has the head of a small nail glued to it.
The idea seems to work OK and can pull the entire string of cars through the loader, just not sure if it's worth doing. Don't have to decide now, it can be added later.
