Hallelujah Paper: Unfinished Business

I have a habit of biting off more than I can chew. This is doubly-true for hobby projects. I expect that of myself, and I'm not really surprised by it. Yet it's still a bit annoying when on occasion I find myself validated.

The photo shows the big scenery hole at the paper mill that I wanted to have closed by today. The chemical unloading area and storage tanks is sitting on my workbench half-built. The track needs to be painted without gumming up the turnouts along the way. Ground cover needs to be added, ditto. Building the access road and the parking lot, as well as the truck access to the wood yard would also be nice. These items are on the list for next week. Depending on how quickly that goes, I might do the truck loading area and the mine track at the Finished Paper warehouse, too.
I have a bunch of cars for the paper mill that need to get ready for the next modern operations session, so that should keep me entertained for an evening or so in the next couple days.

Background piles of wood chips and conveyor belts from the rotary dumper to the digester, as well as a lot more pipes would nicely round out the industry. Those will need to wait until next year, since I'd like to direct my attention back to the Welztalbahn soon.
