Chapter 7.3 ~ Finishing the coal bunker
Last week the reed coal baskets arrived after ten months waiting (they came all the way from Vietnam).
Now, I finally was able to finish the coal bunker.
As it was in Februrai 2020
... and six months later (August 2020)
But now, the finishing touch!
Before I put the baskets in thier spots, I will give the area a true coal-ish look. But first a recap...
Finally glued to the platform
First both the platform and surrounding area are painted in a thin mix of black and lasur
The coal is scattered around the bunker.
On the paltform, the coal is positioned on the right spot, still dry. A little philosophy is not superfluous...
The staircase now added, the coal glued...
The right atmosphere is created. Waiting for the next locomotive to be supplied!
Tomorrow, I will add the bats and coal shovels
And so I did... (December 19, 2020)
Filling an empty basket half with coal
Ouch... someone toppled a basket!
To top it all off, I tackled the area along the track as well
And in the end, some lasur topping here and there...
