N Scale Layout #6 - A Season In Hope (2009-?)
The No Imagination Required RR

Building #48 - SunRich Premium Conditioning Plant

This plant is more thorough than the neighboring "bulk conditioning plant", and allows for different types of shipments (rather than just bulk/loose shipments). Only soybeans are cleaned in this facility. Trucks dump their soybeans into receiving pits on either the east or west sides of the building, which are then processed through a series of spirals and other equipment to get rid of tiny stones, off colored beans, odd shaped beans, etc. For the most part, finished product is bagged (50 lb, 30 kg, or 1000 lb “super sacks”). For shipment, the bags are moved out the various loading docks and onto waiting trucks. For bulk shipments, product is loaded into trucks by way of a spout on the east side of the building. For container shipments, product is cleaned and conditioned into "tote bags". Said tote bags are then dumped onto a conveyor, which moves the product into the container.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), I don't really have the space on my layout to model this enormous structure. So, off to "selective compression" oblivion it goes.
