Lumber is arriving

One of my industries is a lumber “transloading” facility, for better terms. I don’t see it as a full service lumber yard but rather a place that unloads bulk lumber and materials and ships them out via truck to lumberyards. One track is for lumber racks, the other for box cars that will eventually unload into a building. This facility has a sizable yard that will hold a lot of bundles of lumber as they get unloaded. As I searched online for lumber loads, I ran across this site. I tried to scale down some of the HO scale graphics but I didn’t have much luck (this time) so I decided to start out with a few that were already N scale. I setup the bandsaw and starting ripping down 1/4″ plywood I had laying around. And finally, I cut the wood various lengths from 8-20′. I have the process down to a few minutes apiece now. Here are a few photos of the progress.
