    Moose decided to give the Brewery's shipping building similar treatments as the Brewery's main building has received:

    Moose also testing ways to make steps into some of the doors that are a wee bit off the ground.

    As with all the recent scratch-builds, still need to apply and sand putty here and there...

    Moose has been working on the warehouse, mostly reinforcing the walls and trying to get them square. Added a floor (not shown) where it will be exposed over the railroad track below. Added the quions to the corners. Running low on materials so may put a stopper in this project for now.

    Moose been fiddling with different ideas for a portable horse ramp design for Oban yard. Decided to start fabricating one to get a better impression of how these might work.

    This shows a double ramp with ~ 4 foot side rails. Both halves of the ramp would be hinged at the center, with one half's end resting on the ground, the other half's end lifting up to rest on the edge of the car floor.

    Moose still considering how to fabricate the frame & wheels that will support the ramps and allow them to be moved about the loading area.

    Mrs. Moose finished tiling the roof ... ... ... on the passenger station. Yeah!


    Unfortunately, due to a slight scheduling error on Moose's part, the depot is not otherwise finished: still need to finish painting and then install the windows and doors.

    Mooseland (TM) construction crew appears to be nearly finished with construction of the brewery shipping building, including roof-top structure for elevator equipment & roof access stairwell.

    However, the roof is not complete. Only temporarily placed the 400 grit sandpaper that will serve as roofing material...

    Any ideas on what should also be on a 1930s era industrial building's roof?

    As to Orca it has been administratively dissolved
    https://washington-company.com/co/or...ng-company-llc
    As to Moose Lodge Brewing I can only assume they ware taken over by Anheuser-Busch but they are no longer making Moose Lodge Lager

    Moose finished-ish the main brewery building for now. Sill needs a door that went missing and some roof details. All will likely possibly maybe have to wait until nasty naughty weather comes again...

    What’s on any roof is dependent on what is going on inside.
    • Every building will have a chimney, multiple ones if heating independent tenants.
    • All buildings in the civilized world will have soil stacks(wastewater vents)
    • Even in the thirties early air conditioning exists (evaporative and heat powered) not small enough for residential.
    • Most will have some form of vent for air circulation/cooling (heat rises)
    • Earliest refrigeration was industrial and very large.
    • Ice cooled buildings lack windows and venting. Often built as nested structures. The air gap providing insulation like a Thermos bottle.
    • Many industrial processes need extra air flow to exhaust heat and dangerous chemicals.
    • Roofing is real tarpaper. Needing constant maintenance. (lots of big roofing crews, everything done by hand)
    • Large expanses under roof will allow sagging i.e. long lasting puddles.
    • Standing water attracts flying wildlife.

    In other words, same stuff as today. Just not as sophisticated usually a lot bigger.
    Use what you know about the world to model…
    Learn from modeling what you don't know about the real world.
