The In-ko-pah Railroad


The second town on the In-ko-pah Railroad is Mineral Ridge, located on the upper level at the center of the layout. Until recently there was nothing at the site but an empty space and some small conduits for future lighting.

I started work on the townsite in July 2011. The first project was to build a scale retaining wall and road. These were completed in August 2011.

In November 2011 I have managed to get a little more work done. I’ve been adding a scale, stone retaining wall above the townsite, which will eventually support a tram running between the mines and a mill. I also put in the cement foundations for the town’s buildings.

In early 2013 I began work on the first building for this town. That building is now complete except for lighting and interior details. I also made the cast concrete sidewalks and a second building. I have recently started on a large mill and mining complex.

Above: The town of Mineral Ridge. Currently there are two buildings, which still need interior details and lighting.  Several more buildings will eventually be added.

On the right is the Mineral Ridge mill. The main structure of the mill is now complete, except for lighting and a few small details. Later there will be two bridges carrying mine trams to the ore dump at the top of the mill.

Eventually there will be several other buildings. Once they have been created, you will be able to find out about them by clicking on these links:
