Excellent, Specter. I'm modeling grain on my upcoming  layout and was trying to find how their operations work. This is perfect. Thank you.

Answers some questions about the old elevators. I see the 0-5-0 method is not only alive and well, but rather prototypical!
Welcome to Ontario... we've got a tax for that.

Yeah, I think that was one of the more interesting things. We all need one of those tools eh?

+1 Thanks for the video!

Anyone else see what happened when this video was reposted over on the A-board? Way to take such a fascinating and valuable source of information and turn it into a dysfunctional political debate.

It did fine when it was posted last April.  :P

I, unfortunately, had a role in that going off-track when I questioned one poster's gratuitous comments as not contributory to the discussion.  He seemed to take that as a challenge to expand on his political views.  Will I never learn?  The fact is, this is a marvelous resource piece.

OK, I had to go check out the train wreck after this post. Looks like there was only one guy trying to derail the discussion with some asinine (and ill-informed) political comments. And he was pretty well put in his place by others who'd rather discuss model railroading.

Good for them.

And now back to our regular programming ...
