IC Freight House Details
Gibsland offers that simplicity while containing enough detail to keep it interesting. One landmark in the Gibsland railroad scene is the derelict former Illinois Central Freight House across from the Louisiana and North West diesel shop.
A trip was made to Gibsland last Monday, 3-13-2017, to take some detail shots and gather ideas for the layout. This post will focus on the freight house.
Measurements and photos were taken to compliment images taken on earlier trips to capture enough information to model the structure. Below we will go around the structure. The drawings were made from measurements taken on this last trip. The drawings are not exactly to scale as they were done in PowerPoint, however they are very close.
