After a while of shunting wagons on Sadler’s Sidings and reviewing what `flavour’ I wanted I’ve decided to make a few changes to the industries and/or their locations.
- Keeps Shed A and gets a new Shed B.
- Loses the small timber shed as it ended up being a bit of pain operationally even though it made a good scenic feature. I’ll need to work out what to fill the space with. Move in the yellow brick workshop at present located next to Shed A?
- Shed D becomes Shed C or perhaps a whole new specialized transshipment operation – Eg. paper products coming from interstate (South Australia).
Drawing upon my research of the old Fitzroy Goods Yard, see:
I’ve decided on adapting some prototype industries that suit the smaller area, even if they are still compressed a bit.
- The proposed coolstores are replaced with the building that was Sadler’s Shed B. This is to represent a distribution shed for Laucke Stock Feeds – A South Australian company – as a justification for South Australian wagons and an inspiration from the Bunge Flour depot at Fitzroy. See:
- The `runaround’ siding that has always had a degree of mystery about it has now been designated as a grain transshipment area. The Fitzroy Yard had two sets of small grain transshipment silos that were used for moving barley from rail trucks to road trucks for delivery to local breweries. See:
That’s the current cogitations, things may change, but hopefully not a lot.
