A versatile industry, a ramp

In my early 1970s version of the RailsWest layout, I wanted a place where I could handle a diversity of traffic–a place to load onions and cotton grown in the valley and a place to receive goods brought in for area businesses, such as the Safeway and lumber yard.

I wanted it to be able to handle 2 to 3 cars and look like it has been there out in the sun for a long time.

I also wanted it to look like it had been maintained over the years.

In fact, I wanted part of it to look rebuilt.

I built it by combining four Blair Loading dock kits.

The Blair kits are easy to build.  I recommend this kit.  It looks good and is easy to build.

It can handle 2 to 3 cars.

It looks good upon fairly close inspection.

All in all a great addition to the layout.  It offers a lot of operation possibilities.
