MWTM - Building A Branch Line Coaling Facility


Date: 13 July 2020 Time: 7:30am – 11:30am

Lead Instructor: Peter Youngblood, MMR, assisted by MMRs Jim Gore and Clark Kooning.

In this clinic Peter Youngblood will guide you through scratch building a common branch line coaling facility. With a provided plan, wood materials from Mt. Albert lumber and pieces cut from Styrene, you’ll have learned how to build a generic, eye catching, railroad lineside facility. Construction methods are applicable to all scales. You are required to bring your own tools.

Required Tools Participants Must Provide:

#1 X-Acto knife
#11 X-Acto blades (5 pack)
Razor Saw w/fine tooth blade
Metal Miter Box (for the above)
Self-healing Cutting Mat 8 ½” x 12” (or larger) Small hobby square HO Scale Ruler Fine pointed tweezer
Emery boards (the ones women use to file their nails)
Aleen’s “Quick Dry” Tacky Glue
Self-healing cutting mat 8 1/2” x 12” (or larger is fine)
1 Package Handy Wipe

Participants need to bring their own tools in order to participate in these clinics

Bring any other tools you usually use or might find useful.
Optional tools: Optivisor, extra work light. These are handy tools which you could use in our clinics, but it is not essential that you buy them just for this week. It is your option!

A good way to carry all of these tools is to buy a small inexpensive plastic tackle box. These are usually available at department stores year-round.
