Independence Mine
Ore House No. 1

Located near the main Shaft No. 1, connected to the Breaker House by a trestle.

Victor, Colorado


This long and unsual Ore House was located at the Center of the uppper part of the mine complex and was used for shipping and receiving at the siding of the RR. The trestle to connect it to the Breaker House, the Independence Trestle No. 1 is also availble as a separate unit for ease of placement. It entered the roof of the Ore House as a fairly sharp angle.

The Independence Straton Mine was one of the largest in the Cripple Creek District and was the site of one of the first lodes to be found by Edward Straton in the first years of the gold boom in that field. This huge mine complex contained a whole series of shafts, Mills, processing faciliteis and Ore Houses and delivered ore to the Midland and also to the Cripple Creek RRs on both standard and Narrow Guage lines. This complex will be details in a series of models to facilitate placeement as it also contined numberous smaller structures and a number of tramway ways and trestles Refer to the overall layout plan for correct placelement.

This series could not have been done without extensive reserach and the help of collegues in the Historical research field of the early mines of Colorado espeicaly including Linda Irene Tingvik with her kind permission, she also shared the historic Sandborn insurance maps that allows the creation of this complex

This model includes night and snow textures. It is medium poly so can be used for both MSTS and Open Rails.

Rights and Restrictions: you may freely use, rework and repaint this model, TSM source files is included. The only restriction is that this model may not be sold or used in commercial pay ware wthout my express permission. You can reach me at the e mail below. It may also be converted to Railworks, Trainz or any other sim format I would appreciate notice and a copy of your finished work.

Place the shape and texture files into your route folders and add the ref entry to your ref list. I use the 257 texture setting so that this will correctly display both snow and night textures.
