Very nice! Its a great touch for an 009 layout.
Yes, loose loading gravel and sand is usually something you see in the larger scales. After getting the stones caught in the points and couplings I think I know why. But it works well enough.

Looks good. I've made a working coaling tower in oo gauge and I find that it sometimes gets blocked up but then the coal is much bigger than the sand or fine gravel being pit through your loader. Its a simple and effective extra for opperation and I find that it makes me feel like I'm operating a more realistic railway than one that just pretends to load wagons.
This is the rather nifty tool I made to load the gravel. The hole in the backscene is slightly too small to just tip it in. The red bit is one side of a chimney from a Wills platelayers hut (I think) and the rest is styrene strip. WP_20180414_15_48_35_Pro.jpg

Fantastic idea for a CBC I really like what you have modelled the scenery, wagons and loco are nicely done..
