Chapter 7.3 ~ Finishing the coal bunker

(18.12.2020) 

 

 

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.

 

~~~

Recap...  

 

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...
