Hi all,

I am looking to build in S scale a typical CBH tin bin like the one shown here. However I can't seem to locate any still standing.

Does anyone know of one still around that I can photograph and measure?

Cheers

Cris

Thanks Neil, but thats one of the curved sheeted bins, like the one just in shot in the above photo. What I'm looking for is the one in the centre of this shot.

Cheers

Cris, the old ones opposite the wharf at Geraldton are similar style, but much larger. Certainly the same design though.

Good thinking Tiny - I'd forgotten they were a very similar type. Very Happy

Any chance of a couple of photos??

The 1st bin is called a B type holds about 15000 tonnes They where inloaded via the roof via a nasty elevator called a country elevator the blokes that used them called them a name similar.
Out loading was by using a clark shovel witch was a bent tin plate that worked of the country elevator.The grain was pushed through a shoot on the side of the bin.

The 2nd bin was a H type held 10000 tonne the base of one is at Ongerup roof removed the system of loading the bin was the same as loading and unlolading the B type B type bins can still be seen around the state Beverly Wubin Jerramungup Pingelly

Conveyors and unloading pits were place on the B types in about the late 60s early 70s.
H type had there end walls removed and loaded by the thrower a machine placed on front of a mls and the grain was spat into the bin.Out loading was done by front end loader.
Some H types had there roofs removed and grain was placed into the H type via the above way.Originally the Roofed removed H type had tin placed onto the grain as a way to protect the grain.This was replaced by the tarping system as use today.
The last H type used to my knollage was at SE Hyden but was removed from use before 2000.
A H type is still used for a museum at Pingrup

It does, yet I'm still a little confused. The one at Pingrup doesn't look like the one in the centre of Phi's photo (which is a H type??), and (if I'm correct) the one on the left of Phil's shot is a B type, which looks like the Pingrup one.

So I reckon I need an original H type bin with roof, none of which exist, although at Ongrup there is a base now used as open pig sty storage. Correct???

Sorry Chris yes i have confused You.
Yes the Photo shows the one on the Left its a B Type The one on the right is a H type
The one at Pingrup was modified yes it looks simular as a B type but it has its sides modified and is a H type
Ongerup is  a H Type with roof removed. it is 123.5 meters long 16.5 meters long.
Its side are striaght corragated iron sheeting a slope of 75 deg at 2.5 meters high the side out side have wooden struts at one meter spacing shaped as a A .Grain out lets the same as the B Type at every 6 Meters on both sides of Bin.
The Struts same as a old open bulk head or a G type sides.
Some H type where longer than others eg Ongerup no two H type was 195 meters.
They did not have a track shed or elevator system as the country elevator was the system of loading.
I hoped this helped
