STANDARD SECTION TOOL HOUSE
1/4″ Scale Kit #3566 $15.00
According to the 1942 edition of the Railway Engineering and Maintenance Cyclopedia, “the building most common to all railroads is the small section tool house.” The proto-type for our tool shed is one located at Pando, CO on the D&RGW line. It is typical of the D&RGW’s standard tool shed–a rigid frame, pre-fabricated galvanized steel structure. This type of shed was commonly placed at each section, throughout both the standard and narrow gauge systems. The sheds began to appear around 1940 and can still be seen today on the D&RGW as well as on other lines. Our sheds can be modeled with the doors open or closed.
Foot-print for 1/4″ version is 4-1/16 x 4-1/8″
1/4″ Scale Kit #3580 $29.95
Our proto-type for this modest depot was built in the mid 1890’s by the Wiscasset, Waterville, and Farmington Railway and was used until it burned in the 1920’s. Typical of other small agent stations, it can also be modeled as the station at Alna or as the Wiscasset Section House.
Similar flagstop buildings of this size were also used throughout the US where a full service station was not feasible. Special features of this kit are the outhouse, milk cans and great signage. The footprint for the station is 3” x 2-1/2”. The platform is 3” x 1.5”.
