|I think this is a load in.|
- The siding is a good distance from the treating operation itself. There is a large storage yard for poles between the siding and the plant. The siding itself looks to extend well through the yard, but it appears that most unloading is now done near the turnout, I guess so not to have to push the cars through the yard. The track also looks to be mostly buried and maybe from all the heavy equipment, isn't in the best shape
- Bulkhead flats are used with steel cradles for the logs. I'm not sure if these are available with the cradles, but they could probably be easily fabricated from styrene strip.
- As you can see, there are no buildings around the siding and the area is pretty rural in appearance. The siding could be modeled in a very small space without actually depicting the plant itself. The rolling stock and loads would add some interest to a modern layout
