This looks absolutely great. What did you use to model the water?

Excellent. In the past I have used EnviroTex and the results were acceptable, but a few things always irked me about it.    Does the Realistic Water "creep" up the banks like EnviroTex?

I thought this would help the coal minning? I miss this RR and can't wait to start a new one.

Thanks for resurrecting this topic.  This is similar to what I would considered as a addition to a layout as a side peninsula.

I have some photos of Mine No. 33 that was served by the Cambria & Indiana in PA. I just need to get them scanned.

Ok, you need a new thread that focuses on that industry in the foreground, especially if it's a paper mill.   :D

I am very late to this thread, so pardon my post if it has no relevance.

the location as I see it has to do with whether the tipple is serving a mine (i.e. underground) or a strip/mountain removing (i.e. above ground) operation

where I grew up it was mainly strip mines that dug into the side of mountains, the same being true now in WV put called something different

the conveyor that connects to the coal source needs to be located where the coal is coming from, thus if it is an incline up to the stripping of the mountain side its position on the trackplan could/would be different than if it is accessing and underground mining. this is especially true in regards to the backdrop and the width of the space where the tipple is located.

fwiw
