After getting a nice morning hike in I got motivated to start working on a mine. I got my last 3 ft section a straight track. This completed my siding out to the mine. The mine went very fast to build. Took a few hours to complete. Now I have to make some nice tip cars that will rust nice when left outside and hang two lanterns outside the mine entrance. . Here are some pictures.

Looking good.
Mines are a great addition to an outdoor layout.




Thanks, you are right something about a mine really does add to the layout. I orginaly was going to put an engine house in that spot but the more I looked at pictures of mines the more I really wanted one. Plus my area has a lot of mines from the 1800's. Couldhave not been a more perfect fit into the layout.
