The concept for Iron Hill is an open cut mine leading up to the mine head which has a ore heap and storage bin which feeds a conveyor to the ore car loader. The old mine shaft and wooden mine head is in the background. See the concept sketch that BJ put together following our discussions.
Now lets take a look at the basic woodwork for the scenery to be constructed on.
The mine face
Three 16mm craft wood sections fixed to each other and the fascia of the top deck.
Woodwork to which the retaining walls at the loading point and cut into the adjacent hill will be fixed.
Runs from the mine to the storage area.
The top deck fascia has been fitted to allow the "dirt" to be laid on which the ground cover and trees will be added in due course. The screw holes will be filled and then eventually will be painted black.
