It looks great. I especially like the coloring of the metal parts.

Very well done.  I agree that the rust was spot on.

Thank you for the kind words.  I really like the rust look with the Rembrandt Chalks - it has become my go to technique.  I will be doing a little blending and adding some black coal dust - this is going to be a working coal tower, before I call this one done.

I placed the baseboard in position on the layout and took some pictures before I start the final detailing.

Terrific job John!  That's going to look absolutely fantastic when the scenery is finished and there are loco's and rolling stock on the tracks.   ;)
