Add aggregate traffic to your layout with this rugged trackside structure. The Walthers Cornerstone Glacier Gravel Co. is a model of a stone crusher-washer with equipment for loading rail cars or trucks. Railroads have an enormous appetite for crushed rock. A mile of mainline can gobble up thousands of tons. Glacier Gravel Co. will help satisfy your railroads appetite for rock. This easy-to-build kit looks great as part of a stone quarry operation, alongside mines like the New River Mining Co. 933-3017 and Coal Flood Loader 933-3051, in a mine, or as part of a slag recovery operation down the track from the steel mill buildings. Matching conveyor sections 933-3149 are available separately for customizing your Glacier Gravel operation as needed. Detailed parts capture the look of concrete and steel construction. The kit features corrugated construction on a heavy poured concrete foundation/loading tunnel. Conveyors to a truck dump and feeder from the quarry complete the facility. Rock crushers similar to this have been in use since the 1940s, so Glacier Gravel Co. will fit perfectly into transition and modern era layouts. The main building can accommodate two tracks inside and includes a detailed loading bin. Glacier Gravel Co. also includes decal signs and complete instructions. Glacier Gravel Co. is just one of a wide variety of Cornerstone industrial buildings.
