NSA-10014 AR Tower Kit : N Scale : Available

NSA-10014 AR Tower Kit

AR Tower - Railway Heritage Models Laser-Cut Wood Kit - 4"(L) x 2"(W) x 3"(H)

The AR Tower kit is based on the AR (“Allegheny Ridge”) Tower that still stands in Gallitzin, Pennsylvania at the summit of the Pennsylvania Railroad’s (PRRs) Allegheny Mountain crossing. It was put into service on October 2, 1909 in an effort to consolidate the control of AR, UN, SF, and BF interlockings and was primarily used to protected the loop track for helper locomotives heading back to Altoona. AR Tower was closed in 1995 when its operations became remotely controlled from Harrisburg. The original flat roof of this tower was replaced by a hip roof in the 1960’s. Both the flat and hip roof options and the Compressor Shed are provided in this kit. A prototype Color Photo Sheet has also been included to be used as a reference for coloring and “modernizing” this structure. The laser-cut self-stick "American Bond" brick and slate pieces featured in this kit are created from our Model Builder’s Supply Line styrene building sheets. In addition, the foundation pieces are created from Taskboard®, a new wood fiber building material that is also part of our Model Builder’s Supply Line. Our thanks to the Pennsylvania Railroad Historical and Technical Society for providing the prototypical information used to develop this kit. N Scale Model Area: 4"(L) x 2"(W) x 3"(H)

NSA-10015 New Haven's Cranston Station Kit

New Haven's Cranston Station - Railway Heritage Models Laser-Cut Wood Kit - 3-1/2"(L) X 2-3/4"(W) X 1-3/4"(H)

This Cranston Station kit is based on the New Haven Railroad’s station that once stood in Cranston, Rhode Island (southwest of Providence). According to NYNH&H Railroad Company records, this station was built in 1870, retired on 09/15/38 and removed September 1940. The photos shown here are dated 06/26/1916 and the drawings used are dated 03/30/1911. As indicated by the privy at the rear, there was no water or sewer provided at this station and appartently no electricity as the last records from 09/04/30 still show oil lamps being used. Cranston was once the home of the large Cranston Print Works whose workers no doubt accounted for most of the activity at this station. The laser-cut slate pieces featured in this kit are created from our "Model Builder’s Supply Line" styrene building sheets and the foundation is created from "Taskboard", a new wood fiber building material that is also part of our "Model Builder’s Supply Line". N Scale model measures approximately 3½"(L) X 2¾"(W) X 1¾"(H) .

NSA-10017 Gruber Wagon Works Kit : N Scale : Available

NSA-10017 Gruber Wagon Works Kit

Gruber Wagon Works Kit - 7-1/4 x 6 x 2-3/4"

The industrialized production of horse drawn wagons carriages began in the 1820's and peaked around 1904 when there were over 5,500 active shops in the United States. With introduction of motorized vehicles in the early 1900's, most of these shops rapidly switched to the production of components for these vehicles by 1910. Gruber Wagon Works was founded by Franklin H. Gruber in 1883 and, with help of his four sons, the business grew until the last major expansion in 1911. Gruber Wagon Works, originally located in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania, outlasted most of its competitors up until 1977 when it was relocated as a result of the Blue Marsh Lake Reservoir project. Today it has been restored almost completely intact as a museum in Red Bridge Park, Berks County Pennsylvania. To find out more about the Gruber Wagon Works Museum, please visit their website at: http://www.co.berks.pa.us.

This kit represents the Gruber Wagon Works as it was in 1904 at which point the power source for it's internal pulley system was a Otto gasoline engine. Though this Gruber Wagon Works kit does include a dock and ramps for loading wagons onto railcars, the prototype was never served by a railroad. This kit includes an option for excluding this loading dock and includes longer ramps for lowering wagons from the second floor paint shop (the final stage of the production process) back down to ground level. In case you were wondering... the paint shop is on the second floor because of the dust from the adjacent dirt road ! Should you wish to add buggies, wagons, carriages and other details to your completed model, please visit the Detail Parts and Shire Scenes sections of this web site to see dozens of detailing and vehicle items. Finished model measures: 7¼"L x 6"W x 2¾"H.

NSA-10018 X-Cel Feed Kit : N Scale : Available

NSA-10018 X-Cel Feed Kit

X-Cel Feed Kit - Railway Heritage Models Laser - 16 x 8 x 6"

The X-Cel Feed kit is based on a feed mill complex located in Tacoma, Washington. It was originally built in 1914 by the Kenworthy Company as a grain handling facility. Initially grain was received in boxcars with paper doors (inside the sliding doors) and was later modified to accept covered hoppers. The Kenworthy operation sold grain in bags and in bulk. X-Cel purchased the mill in 1965 and converted it to a feed only plant that is still served by rail and bulk trucks today. Though this kit is based on a specific prototype, its design is typical of large feed mill complexes that still stand across the United States. All of the individual structures included in this kit are fully supported and most can be placed in virtually any location to accommodate the space available on your layout or module. The elevator towers can also be positioned to suit the modelers preferences using the nearly four(4) feet of piping included in this kit. The sacks, sack stacks, barrels, barrel clusters, hand carts and figures shown on the label are available separately as part of our Making A Scene detail parts line. Finished model measures: 16"L x 8"W x 6"H.

NSA-10200 Ogden Creek Viaduct Base : N Scale : Available

NSA-10200 Ogden Creek Viaduct Base

Ogden Creek Viaduct-Base - Railway Heritage Models Laser-Cut Wood Kit - H:4 1/2" X W:2" X L:8"

The Ogden Creek Viaduct was inspired by the numerous reinforced concrete bridges and viaducts that are found along the "Lackawanna Cut-Off". This engineering marvel is a nearly flat and straight right-of-way that extends from Scranton, PA to Hoboken, NJ. It was built by the Lackawanna Railroad in the early 1900’s and portions of it are still in use today by Conrail (aka., NS or CSX). In order to keep this right-of-way level and straight, tons of fill and numerous bridges were used to span the roads and valleys along it. These bridges were built in an ornate yet functional "neo-classical" style that was made famous by the Lackawanna Railroad. This kit is available as a base kit designed to reach the edges of the valley or ravine and an expansion kit (available separately) that allows for infinite lengthening of this span. Up to four(4) tracks can be supported by increasing the width. Standard dimensions are: H:4 1/2" X W:2" X L:8"

NSA-BMS016 Burlington Marble Slate Kit : N Scale : Available

NSA-BMS016 Burlington Marble Slate Kit

Burlington Marble & Slate - Railway Heritage Models Laser-Cut Wood Kit - 14"L x 6"W x 3"H

Burlington Marble & Slate was inspired by slate, limestone, blue stone, granite and marble finishing mills that existed across the United States since the early 1800's. The use of these materials declined and by the middle of the 1900's many of these mills were closed. Blocks of stone are brought from the quarry on specialized wagons that ride on a narrow gauge track system (M-TRAK). Finished products including headstones, shingles, columns, and stone work are shipped directly via rail car or to another loading point via the narrow gauge railway. M-TRAK and the scenic details shown are available as part of our "Making-A-Scene" product line. The laser-cut stone and shingle pieces featured in this kit are created from our "Model Builder’s Supply Line" styrene building sheets which are available separately. N Scale model measures approximately 14"L x 6"W x 3"H.

NSA-CFN006 Cal Fame Packing Kit : N Scale : Available

NSA-CFN006 Cal Fame Packing Kit

Cal Fame Packing - Railway Heritage Models Laser-Cut Wood Kit - 12€"(L)x 9"(W)x 3"(H)

The "Cal Fame Packing" kit is based on a citrus packing plant that once stood in Escondido, California (about 30 miles north of San Diego). The prototype (shown left & at the end of these instructions) was designed by William W. Ache who is credited with designing over 60 fruit packing plants in the Southwest United States. This plant was first opened in 1935 by the Escondido Orange Association and continued processing citrus fruits until 1987 when it was closed by the Paramount Citrus Association. Oranges and lemons were trucked to the plant in 55-Pound field boxes that were unloaded at the loading dock on the rear of the plant. Processed fruit was shipped in reefers via the rail spurs located on both sides of the plant which were serviced by the Santa Fe Railroad. Further information on this prototype can be found in the "Historic American Engineering Record" section of the Library of Congress website: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/index.html. The crates, sacks, barrels, and vehicles shown on the label are available separately as part of our "Making A Scene" detail parts line. N Scale model measures approximately 12½"(L)x 9"(W)x 3"(H).

NSA-CNN013 Central of NJ Two Story Station Kit

CNJ Two-Story Station - Railway Heritage Models Laser-Cut Wood Kit - 5"(L) x 3"(W) x 3"(H)

This Central of New Jersey Standard Two-Story Station kit is based on the drawings used in the restoration of the former Central of New Jersey station in Flemington, New Jersey. These drawings are based on the orignal design of this station as it was built in 1865 (see photo left) and other nearly identical stations of this design located in Glen Gardner, Bloomsbury, Bayonne, Three Bridges, Elizabeth Port, Greenville, Plainfield and Neshanic Station, New Jersey. Of these stations, only those in Flemington and Neshanic Station still exists today. The stations at Bayonne and Greenville featured a flat roof design which is provided as an option in this kit (see photo right). The color codes provided in these instructions uses the original color scheme of the Flemingtion Station based on actual paint chips used during the restoration process. Our thanks to Pickell Architecture and Keith Muldowney for their assistance in creating this kit. Further information on Central of New Jersey’s stations and other structures can be found in Historic Journeys by Rail: Central Railroad of New Jersey Stations, Structures & Marine Equipment by Benjamin L. Bernhart. Finished N model measures: 5"(L) x 3"(W) x 3"(H).
