The LDD file for the grain elevator and a single hopper wagon is included!
About this creation
I have recreated this grain elevator designed by my father way back in 1999. The building was built for the loading of hoppers like set 4536 (1991's Blue Hopper Car) or 10017 (2001's Hopper Wagon). This building has never been really well done officially, but it was touched upon in 3677 (2011's Red Cargo Train). However, grain hopper cars have been made at least four times in official sets, with the fourth model being in set 60098. (Heavy-Haul cargo train)
I added some parts that did not exist when the building was originally built, such as the red windscreens used as a funnel, and a conveyor belt with handle. I even included an updated and enlarged version of set 10017 (Hopper Wagon) from the 9v-era's "My Own Train" theme in 2001.
I enlarged the opening for the filling of the grain cars by two studs width-wise so that larger engines and cars can fit through, such a steam engines with working side-rods.
The building features a handle on the other side or operating the conveyor belt.
The handle turns the conveyor belt to drop 1 x 1 round bricks into the funnel and the hopper car below.
A four-stud-longer version of set 10017 (as seen above) is included in the LDD file.
The model includes a larger dual-bay area for carrying more 1 x 1 round bricks representing grain.
