Here are the locations for the two mines that I'm modeling:
|Emma Tunnel||Salt Lake||403533N - 1113752W||Dromedary Peak|
|Flagstaff Mine||Salt Lake||403548N - 1113812W||Dromedary Peak|
We'll have to get some new boots and go find them!
|Minerals:||hemimorphite, wulfenite, cerussite, galena|
|Land Status:||National Forest and private lands.|
|Directions:||Park in Alta and walk up the road that begins at the Alta guard station. This road circles around behind the guard station wo the west, then switches back and heads east, gradually climbing the slope toward Grizzly Gulch. The terrain is fairly open and the dumps are easily seen along the hillside.|
|GPS:||40°35'48"N - 111°38'14"W (approx.)|
1. On30 is NOT a perfect swap for HO, mostly because of the sidings (distance between) and the large size of structures
2. Smelters are enormous and even bigger in O scale. Careful work must be done to "selectively compress" them for a layout.
3. Putting large buildings against a backdrop and splitting them in half is one way to get the feel of a large structure without having to build the whole thing.
