An Industrial Narrow Gauge Adventure - the layout part eighteen

The OSO salt pan and brick built base are now finished. The model is 175mm long x 145mm high x 100mm deep. It is built to the rather unusual scale of 1;27.7 or 11mm = 1 foot and was designed and built to run proprietary HO-OO mechanisms with custom built or scratch built bodies on 16.5mm PECO 'Crazy Track' replicating 18inch gauge narrow gauge industrial engines and track. The salt pan is based on but not an exact copy of The Lion Salt Works salt pan in Cheshire. The OSO name was once an independent salt manufacturer in my home town of Droitwich Spa, Worcestershire.

The figures are heavily modified 1;24th scale figures purchased from China and resin copies are available to buy from me. For full details see this post.
