Question by ace: How can I build an operating HO scale model train conveyor belt to feed coal to a coal tipple?
Hi,i recently got into HO scale model railroading. I would like to add action to my layout. I already have the life-like brand coal tipple (http://www.hobbylinc.com/htm/lif/lif8306.htm) and was thinking about running a conveyor belt to feed it so I wouldn’t have to refill it all the time. I have never tackled a project like this one before, so any help at all would be great! thanks!

First, purchase the conveyor belt [of course]
Then, browse through the Model RR catalogs or websites to obtain a small electric motor. Hook up the motor shaft to the conveyor belt and wire it to a switch on your control panel.
If it doesn’t work; well, at least I tried.
