Pandora in HO scale

I've been making some headway on getting structures and scenery completed for the town of Pandora. The elevators are completed for the most part. I still need to construct the depot and stock pens.
The attachment Pandroa3.jpg is no longer available

Pandora info needed

On the eastern end of Pandora, the AC&Y switched the Russell Company. Did the building have individual doors for boxcars or was there a loading dock along the building? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Re: AC&Y R2

It started as a PFM USRA light mikado. It has brass and resin details, many are one of a kind. The valve gear is precision scale, the tender is resin.

Re: Brittain Yard Operations

The ramp was at the east end of the yard on the north side. It is still there in the weeds.

AC&Y R2

A pair of images from recently completed HO scale AC&Y R2 #405. The engine weighs over 20 ounces and can easily pull a 20 car train up a 2% grade. That should translate to about 50 cars on level track.

Re: Maybe the last active AC&Y equipment?

It was still "in service" in Brewster a few years back. It might still be around but I am not sure.
