    Old West Gold Mine

    created by Nathan on 2014.01.17

    Main Section
    This model is a bit dated as it's from 2008, but I think it's still one of my finest designs. It does have an interior but it's much less favorable by today's standards so I'll only link to it here, where you can also find larger, un-cropped copies of the photos above and below.

    Here's a shot from the side of the building for a closer look at the headframe.

    Here's a shot looking up at the sluice box with connections that I'd have changed were it built today and should certainly be altered for a set prototype.

    I used the images on the following pages for reference in designing this model:
    These Old West Industrial photographs
    This image of a Colorado flack mine for model train layouts
    This artwork from a Disney flash game

    In case you missed it above, the full set of original photos including an interior shot is available for viewing here.
