Bakery help, pics needed
« on: June 17, 2007, 10:04:32 PM »

I'm planning on adding a large bakery to my layout. I have a Walthers paper mill and add on silos as a starting point to kitbash into my bakery.

There is an Entenmann's bakery close by and I've gotten some good ideas, but I'd like to see what else is out there. Any ideas on where to look for them online or pics anyone might have to help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Make sure you model that in "odorama"...  Bakeries always smell sooooo good!

No longer rail served, but it used to be (via street trackage).

The H&S Bakery here in Bawlmur, Fells Point, to be eact.

You could put a fan driven smoke unit in it,and use scented smoke fluid.
I hear Cinnamon Roll smells really delicious. ;D

Thanks Ed. Doesn't matter if the bakery is served by rail, it will be on mine. Just trying to get a feel for configurations and paint colors.

There will be no smell-a-rama on my layout. It's hard enough to stay on a diet. ::)

Just need a good place to run my corn syrup tank cars, boxcars and grain cars to. ;D

Just as a side note, back in the '60's as Covered Hoppers started coming into vogue, the WM went from unloading bagged flour from boxcars at the bakery or on the team track at the Hillen Street terminal to a bulk flour facility in West Baltimore.  That provided a more efficient means of bringing flour into Baltimore, allowed bakers to expand in areas where rail service wasn't available, and gave the WM almost all of the flour business coming into town.

Instead of a full bakery needing lots of real-estate, you could do a transloading facility that would be a fairly compact trackside scene.

Lee, that's a good idea, but the real estate has been purchased already. ;D

The bakery is going to go inside a large return loop on the layout. The large bakery itself will help me hide the fact it is a loop, along with scenery.

That's how I did my paper mill...  Got a track plan and scenery schematic?

I plan to have a bakery on my railroad as well, and will use the Walthers Brach's Candy plus the American Hardware buildings. Bakeries make an excellent traffic source, as you can have inbound covered hoppers with flour, boxcars with flour, tank cars of oils and syrups, even reefers of fruit for pies. Then you can ship the baked goods out in insulated boxcars and or reefers!

There used to be a huge Continental Baking Co. bakery in Long Island City that could be seen from the LIRR to Penn Station on the North side of the tracks. Of course, that was over four decades ago. My mother worked there before I was born...

No I don't, when I laid the track, I had it in my head what I was doing.

How did you do your schematic? If I had access to a scanner, I could draw it out, but I don't.

Not sure how much this helps but here's a Google map of the Nabisco plant that is rail served here in Portland, OR

Also, here's a photo of the front of the building facing Columbia Blvd.

This is a sacred place for myself and my fellow Philly brethren:



The track with the train on it cutting across the top is the former CR Trenton Line, you can see the Tastykake switch about 1/3 of the way from the right side. The building's architecture is concrete brick curtain, similar to the Walthers George Roberts Printing or American Hardware buildings.

I really like the intricate roof details, while the main body of the building is pretty bland.  Especially interesting to me...  it looks like there's a disused helipad on the northwest corner.  Then again, I have helicopters on the brain...

Sean,

I knew you would have something to show me. Your right, it does look similar to the Roberts or Hardware buildings. That picture is great for what I am looking for, to see how different bakerys are set up so I have a better idea as I kitbash mine.

I'm starting with the paper mill because the large bakery that sticks in my mind is the Entenmanns bakery in Bayshore. More modern than the Tastykake bakery, but maybe I can infuse new and old together too.

Bob,
I rolled out my pencil track plan drawing, and took a photo of it, then edited in the track plan using the MS Paint program.  It took a little time, but it worked out fine.

Gonzo, I think that Tastykake facility is ideal for this situation.  It also is making me hungry...
