Trying to come up with a mechanism for tipping the v skips into the wagon.
Have you thought of a bloke with big muscles?

Haddock.
Yes, he will stood by the skip. The mechanism is so it can be operated "no hands" so to speak, from the rear of the layout.

Corrugated shed built as per Nissen huts in Battle of Britain thread.
It disguises the mechanism for righting the skips.
It will be painted and rusted.

Polytex must love you....!
Trees from polytex and other materials, now that's a new technique to watch and observe.
Cheers,

Sign for the quarry/mine.
Made from Slaters Plastic letters and plastic-card.
They must be about 25 years old.
It needs painting.

They still make them - and the letters are still the same - I just need to find out which letters to use for each word - hohohho
Are yours from the Victorian era - ho hohoho
