Now I've started building the gondolas. Some years ago an interchange car from Marty arrived at Westport Terminal trackage.
So I bought some PROTO 2000 52'6" Drop End Mill Gondolas. My first try was with a candle and a hair dryer. I've asked for ideas at Trains.com and TrainBoard. There I've got some good ideas and prototype pictures. GONs
I'm not satisfied with this first try. But I worked on: Dullcote and chalk!

With PC board ties at the segment joint I have cut the rails. And track laying with segment #3 can start.
This segment was Sunday finished and I changed the segments.
And the last of the four segments was finished with track. The attachement from the scrap yard can follow:
And another gon is finished.
