N SCALE: West Coast Pulp Company

The modern-day N-scale layout depicting the West Coast Pulp Company was designed for a client to fit on two 2-foot by 4½-foot modules. The layout is proto-freelance and based on western Canada coastal pulp mills with incoming traffic being introduced by a rail barge. My client wanted a pulp and paper mill, a general office building, and other associated structures. He also wanted a small engine maintenance facility. He also wanted to be able to connect these modules to other future modules. I was able to use Walther's paper mill structures for most of the buildings, since I had mocked them up for another layout.

Thanks for this sophisticated plan. I'm not smart enough to develop something like this, so your contribution has this fan giving applause. I am developing a layout into which this plan will be integrated. When I get some photos of the modeling, I will post them. I am a scratch builder and kit basher. I will use McCabe pulp mill by BTS and WILEY & SON PAPER MILL COMPLEX by Carolina Craftsman Kits plus some custom builds. Thanks again. You have helped me immensely. I have bookmarked your blog and will be following.
