Hey guys. I will be starting my extension room layout soon. The benchwork is complete. So time to start laying track.
There is an oil refinery just east of Denver. Called Suncor. That I want to model. My first plans were to model a steel mill. But I think it would be more appropriate for my theme, which is Colorado D&RGW 1989-Current.
I plan on keeping the same plan. Just replacing the steel mill with the oil refinery.
Would the rotary dumper be appropriate for the oil refinery? The yard is for all coal hoppers.
And the oil loading docks will have all tanker cars.
Any suggestions or insight on how to properly model the oil refinery would be appreciated.
Here's the plan...(note: the bottom is staging)
And here's a google view of the oil refinery.
