The End of the Line
7mm 0/014 - early 1960's - Industrial
The End of the Line represents the distribution point of a very small coal mining operation in the early 1960's. Never very busy, the output of the mine is divided between distant industry, transported away by rail and local demand which is handled by road haulage.
The coal from the mine is delivered to the distribution point by a narrow gauge railway. The tipper wagons discharge their load into a conveyor. Radio controlled lorries are loaded from the conveyor and distribute the coal to customers.
The narrow gauge and standard gauge locomotives are mainly kit built but there are also some 3D printed bodied models from Shapeways and ready-to-run models from Ixion and Bachmann Brassmasters.
