CANADIAN PACIFIC LINESIDE BUILDINGS

Buildings such as these were found on every railroad in North America, but as maintenance procedures are being modernized they are becoming more and more rare. Every section had at least one set of these structures and every Model Railroad needs several. Our prototypes were Canadian Pacific buildings located in Mission, British Columbia, and stood until the middle of the 1990's. The kit consists of a Lineman's Shed, a Toolhouse and a Speeder Shed with a door that may be modelled either open or closed. Besides the features listed above found in all Kanamodel kits this kit has cast simulated concrete bases, Campbell shingles and tar & gravel roofing materials plus additional material for speeder set offs. This is an ideal kit for the beginner or the expert who wishes to superdetail. The footprint of this HO scale model is 2" x 12" but varies with the configuration.

KIT #1004.   retail price $ 46.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC SECTION HOUSE

The term "section house" means different things on different railroads. On the Canadian Pacific, it is a building which houses the section foreman and his family and this is the subject of our model. The CPR built many of these houses all over the system from the late 1800's to the 1930's and some have lasted into the 1990's and possibly some still stand today. In fact our model is based on one standing at Spuzzum, BC., in the Fraser Canyon and was housing a native Indian family until a fire destroyed it in the mid 1990's. All of the special Kanamodel features are in this kit and in addition there is a cast simulated concrete foundation with front steps, Campbell shingles for the roof, plus gutters and down spouts are included. The footprint of this HO scale model  is 4" x 4"  

KIT #1005.  RETAIL PRICE $ 50.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC BUNKHOUSE

The prototype for this kit is a CANADIAN PACIFIC standard branch line bunkhouse. Major crew change points usually had what became known as "railroad hotels" but some areas where there was a short layover utilized this building which housed 5 bunks with a wood/coal stove at one end and a chemical toilet at the other.  Along with all of the normal features found in Kanamodel kits this model uses two styles of  Northeastern siding to represent the wainscot bottom, and has self adhesive simulated tar paper roofing. This popular kit can be used in other applications where small bunkhouses were used such as logging camps, sawmills, etc. The footprint of this HO scale model is 2" x 7".

KIT #1008.  RETAIL PRICE .$ 35.00


CPR BRANCHLINE TERMINUS SET 

Whether you use them as a set or individually you'll find this money saving set will enhance any layout. It is a combination of our most popular CPR buildings that would cost you $ 117.00 if bought individually. It combines our kits #1004 (Lineside Buildings) #1005 (Section House) and #1008 (Bunkhouse). Depending on the configuration the footprint of these HO scale models is 12" x 12".

KIT #1009.  RETAIL PRICE $ 122.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL FREIGHT SHED

In the early days of railroading almost all stations had what was called a "team track".  This siding was for small railroad customers who could load or unload from the boxcars of the day. They were referred to as team tracks as early customers came with wagons drawn by "teams" of horses. (The driver was referred to as a "teamster" which is where the teamsters union got its name). This small freight shed was designed to allow the loading or unloading of freight and LCL parcels out of the weather. The prototype for this kit was a standard CNR design used throughout the system.   It was measured and photographed in downtown Toronto in the mid-1980's although it had not been used for years and was abandoned. Although modern methods made these buildings redundant they can be used even on contemporary layouts as derelects. This kit features cast rafters, a laser cut platform with the holes cut out,  tar and gravel roofing material, etc. We thank the Ontario Society of HO Model Engineers for the assistance in developing this kit. The footprint of the HO scale model is 12" x 3".

KIT #1010.  RETAIL PRICE $ 28.00

THIS KIT IS DISCONTINUED WHEN SOLD OUT


CNR RAIL-TRUCK TRANSFER SHED

Getting LCL freight from boxcars to the local recipient was an important part of railroading right into the 1980's when trailers, containers and intermodal services became more prevalent and railroads moved completely away from LCL freight.  Small towns used the freight shed such as our kit #1010 while larger towns used longer rail truck transfer sheds where many trucks could be handled at one time. Some sheds were many hundreds of feet long, but our shed is not quite that big, being only long enough to handle up to four 40' boxcars at one time. You can use this kit on any layout from the late 1800's on but on a contemporary layout it should be in a state of disrepair. This building, like our kit #1010,  was also seen in Toronto at the same time in the shadow of the CN tower. Thank you to OSHOME, The Ontario Society of HO Model Engineers, for assistance in developing this kit. Laser cut platforms with holes for the rafter posts, plus 11 pre cast rafters, self adhesive simulated rolled roof, and cast concrete footings make this kit an easy project at the same time being a foreground model. Ramps on either end make forklift loading possible. The footprint of this HO Scale model is 24" x 3"

KIT #1011.   RETAIL PRICE $ 43.00

THIS KIT IS DISCONTINUED WHEN SOLD OUT


CANADIAN PACIFIC SANDHOUSE

Since the first days of steel wheels on steel rails sand has been a necessity for good traction, and is still in general use today. Sand had to be stored and dried in facilities such as this Canadian Pacific standard sandhouse. This version was built from the early 1990ís and was still pumping sand into switchers in downtown Vancouver and Victoria BC into the mid 1990ís. Our model was measured from that facility. Along with the many regular Kanamodel features this kit also includes Grandt Line nut/bolt/washer castings, a simulated sand and gravel roof and a realistic cast sand pile that makes this kit an easy foreground model project and a necessity for any steam era layout. The footprint is 2 1/2" x 7"

KIT #1012.   RETAIL PRICE $ 45.00


canadian national enclosed water tank

In the colder Canadian winters railroads had to protect  their valuable water supplies from freezing. Virtually all railroads enclosed  their normal  tanks in an octagon shape and these tanks were found all over Canada and in the Northern USA. this model of the Canadian National version covered the 60,000 gallon round tank. This structure had a wood heater in the bottom that gave enough heat to prevent freezing. The unusual item on the roof was a water level indicator that gave an approaching fireman an idea of how much water was in the tank. The round ball was connected to a float that rode on top of the water in the tank and as the water level dropped the float moved downward on the shaft. This kit was designed from Canadian National plans drawn in 1926. The footprint is 4.5" x 4.5"

KIT # 1013. RETAIL PRICE $ 67.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC BRANCHLINE STATION

This station was from the late 1800's until the mid 1980's on Canadian Pacific branch lines that did not supply living accommodation for the station agent. This model was designed from the restored station located in Coquitlam BC. It originally served the small settlement of Fraser Mills BC. and is now a part of a museum complex in the French Canadian settlement known as Maillardville. Similar stations were found in several other locations in and around Vancouver BC. Our model features laser cut shingled chipboard walls with wood wainscot trim, over a dozen custom cast windows and doors for accuracy, wood platform, colour coded laser cut stripwood, plus complete easy to follow written instructions, with over 24 construction photographs. The footprint is $ 3" x 5.5". AVAILABLE NOW.

KIT #1014.  RETAIL PRICE $ 63.00


SET OF 3 COMPANY HOUSES

Company houses were first used to keep the work force close the site so they would not wind up in the town lock-up after a night in the local saloon. Usually there were several types of houses - one for married men with no children, another for married couples with children, and a more elaborate one for foremen, etc.  The model we have chosen was one used for married couples with no family and was in use into the 1960's in Fraser Mills, British Columbia. They were first built by the Canada Western Lumber Company in the late 1800's. Our model has laser cut clapboard walls, 27 custom castings of windows, doors, etc., cast shingle roof sections for quick realistic construction, cast simulated concrete base, and complete easy to follow instructions with photographs. Each house may be constructed in several different configurations to make your company town more authentic. Each house is 3" x 4" 

KIT #1015. RETAIL PRICE $ 58.00


GRAIN BIN (ANNEX)

This type of grain bin or annex as they were sometimes called were used in conjunction with the grain elevators below to store larger quantities and different varieties of grains. Very often there were two of these buildings, one on each side of the elevator. Besides the features of all of our premium kits as listed above, this kit also has nut/bolt washer castings made by Grandt Line. The footprint of this kit is 4" x 6". 

KIT # 1016. RETAIL PRICE $ 43.00


CANADIAN GRAIN ELEVATOR

This kit is of what could be considered the typical Western Canadian grain elevator as they existed from the late 1800's on. Over the years many were modified and changed to handle the ever increasing variety of grains grown, and every one took on different characteristics. This model was developed from photos, drawings and a number of books on the subject and is as close to the "Prairie Skyscraper" as you can get. This kit includes full colour logo decals of 5 of the most common grain handlers, made for us by Microscale. The footprint is about 8" square. Available in the following:

KIT # 1017. Alberta Wheat Pool.

CANADIAN PACIFIC OCTAGON WATER TANK

Although they may look similar  the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific water tanks were quite different. the only thing in common was the octagon shape. The Canadian National one had a 60,000 gallon capacity while the Canadian Pacific version contained only 40,000. This made the CP tank about 4 feet narrower. There were differences in the windows in size, quantity and placement, and the water spout arrangement was also different. The water level indicators on the top differed in that the CN one was taller with a thinner shaft, while the CP version was short with a thick shaft. Our kit models these and other more subtle differences. Laser cut Northeastern siding is used along with colour coded stripwood. Self adhesive rolled roofing simplifies construction as do the cast windows and door. Complete easy to follow instructions with many photographs make this complete kit easy even for a beginner. The footprint is 4" square.

 KIT # 1027. retail price $ 63.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL CLASS THREE STATION

The CN Class Three Station was the most common station in Canada with over 600 being built between 1910 and as late as 1936. The first station of this class were built by the Canadian Northern which was absorbed into the CN in 1919. After the amalgamation the CN continued using the "Class Three" description for stations of a specific square footage, but the designs were very different. In fact over the years,  with various modifications there were a huge variety of "Class Three" stations. Our HO scale kit is designed from the Canadian National plan 100-253 and to our knowledge has never been produced in kit form before. It is the common 1-1/2 story structure with the add on pantry in the rear kitchen. The kit include laser cut drop siding with the original 4" boards and 6" wainscot. All windows, doors, roof overhang supports, etc are all cast specifically for this kit. In fact 38 casting are included  as no "good enough" ready made castings are included. Other features include the laser cut wood platform, a simulated cast concrete foundation, Campbell shingles and all of the features found in all of our kits as listed at the top of this page. The footprint is 8.5" x 7.5"  

KIT #1028. RETAIL PRICE $ 80.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC 20,000 GALLON WATER TANK

This water tank was found on many of the Canadian Pacific branch lines where smaller locomotives did not carry tenders with huge capacities. Being an open tank they were most often used on the coastal branch lines in both the east and west. Our model was developed after careful measuring and photographing of a fully restored version of the tank located at Parksville on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. We have accurately reproduced this prototype right down to the size of the nut, bolt and washer castings. An accurate Canadian Pacific water level indicator is included and laser cut Northeastern siding covers the tank. Grant Line hoop fasteners, nut bolt castings and water spout are included and self adhesive roofing material makes the unusual octagon roof easy to assemble. Colour coded stripwood, cast simulated concrete bases for the tank supports and interior frost box  and easy to follow instructions with construction photographs round out the kit. The footprint is 1-5/8" x 2-3/16" 

KIT # 1029. RETAIL PRICE $ 43.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC #9 STATION

This has been one of our most popular kits and we are re doing it due to popular requests. The number nine standard station design was built in a number of variations. Our kit is a replica of the one in Port Moody BC Canada, originally the western terminus of the CPR and was scaled from CPR plans at the station which was rebuilt for museum use. All windows and doors are specially cast for ease in constructions, and 150' feet of Campbell shingles gives this kit a very realistic look.  Laser cut walls, gutters, downpipes, scale lumber from Mt. Albert Scale Lumber and accurate printed window treatments round out this kit. The footprint is 13" x 5".

KIT # 1030. RETAIL PRICE $ 90.00

FINAL RE RUN DUE LATE FALL 2016


CANADIAN NORTHERN/CANADIAN NATIONAL FREIGHT HOUSE.

The prototype for this kit was first developed by the CANADIAN NORTHERN about 1909, and was adopted by the CANADIAN NATIONAL as its own standard small freight house after the amalgamation in the early 1920's. They remained in use into the mid 1960's and some still stand to-day as storage for maintenance of way equipment etc. These were found in smaller towns particularly on the Canadian Prairies. Our kit is made with laser cut Northeastern siding, and specially cast windows and doors, colour coded stripwood, and full wainscot. A jig is included for easy assembly of a realistic open stairs Complete easy to follow instructions with many photographs is included. The footprint is  5.5" x 4.5".

CANADIAN PACIFIC ENGINE HOUSE

This HO scale wood building was in use on the Canadian Pacific from the late 1800's to the mid 1900's. The prototype for this model was located at Golden, BC., on the mainline through the Canadian Rockies, and housed the smaller pusher engines such as 4-6-0's and 2-8-0's in use in the early part of the 20th century. Later it was used to house these small engines when they were relegated to the branch lines running south of the mainline. Variations of this building could be found all over the CPR usually  in small branchline terminals particularly on the Canadian Prairies. Parts are laser cut and include colour coded stripwood and over 40 specially cast parts such as windows, doors, hinges, etc. plus easy to follow instructions with many photographs. An unusual feature of this kit is the engine doors that open and close if the builder wishes. It will house locomotives up to 10.5" and the overall footprint is 11.75" x 5.5"

CN/CP  INTERLOCKING TOWER    

Interlocking towers were in use where two railways crossed or interchanged with each other. As a result there was really no basic design that was common to an individual railroad as the towers were most often a result of co-operation of each participating railroad. In Canada most interlocking towers were basically common to both the CN and CP and there was little or no difference from one location to the next. The only thing differing was the size and this was dependent on the number of "levers" in the towers. The levers being the manual devices that controlled the track switches, signals, and sometimes crossing  gates or smash  arms.  Our prototype stood at North Edmonton, Alberta, Canada controlling traffic entering the Canadian National Station. It was similar in size to towers that had up to 24 levers but although information about the number of levers in this tower is sketchy it is doubtful that it had as many as 24. It  features laser cut walls and platform, accurate specially cast windows and doors,  Campbell shingles on the roof an open stairway to the top floor with open railings and a back door landing. A jig is included to make the stair construction easy and fast. Gutters and downspouts are included. The footprint is 4.25" x 2.25"  

KIT # 1033 RETAIL PRICE $ 45.00


CPR WESTERN LINES COALING TOWER

This 60 Ton coaling plant was in use by the CPR on many of its branch lines and small terminals throughout Canada particularly in the west on lines such as the Kettle Valley etc. This is an ideal kit for the small layout and will be a match for our sand house and CPR enclosed water tank in fact all three will be offered in a money saving single kit.  This is one of the coaling plants that did not use an underground dump, rather receiving coal via a gondola and  having it unloaded by shovel onto the hoist bucket which will be included. Laser cut walls in several sizes are in the kits as well as the small outbuilding enclosing the hoist mechanism. Almost 600 actual inches of colour coded scale lumber is included along the the appropriate nut/bolt washer castings.  The footprint is 3.5" x 7"

KIT #1034. RETAIL PRICE $ 75.00


CPR ENGINE SERVICE SET #1

We have combined our new Coaling Tower with our CPR Sandhouse and the Octagon Water tank into a money saving complete kit. 

KIT #1035. RETAIL PRICE $ 168.00


CPR ENGINE SERVICE SET #2

This is the same as set #1 above but includes the small branchline round water tank instead of the larger octagon tank.

KIT #1036. RETAIL PRICE $ 150.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC OIL HOUSE

This building was found in all major yards and was used to store the various grades of lubricating and engine oil. The tanks were stored beneath a concrete foundation. Our HO Scale kit is scaled from CPR blueprints and includes the loading platform and simulated concrete foundations which kept the tanks underground.. It held up to 5 different tanks with separate grades of lube oil and grease. The footprint is 4" x 4.75" .

kit #1037. retail price $ 39.00


CPR AUXILIARY BUILDING SET

This set of  auxiliary buildings were found near engine terminals all over North America. Besides the Oil House described above this money saving kit also includes a tool house of a standard CPR #2 design, plus a combination coal oil shed. This shed was used near the caboose track to service them with coal for the stove and oil or kerosene for the lamps. They were also common near stations and interlocking towers as the oil was used in switch stand lantern and the coal was used to heat the small buildings. The footprint is about 4" x 10" depending on the configuration.

kit #1038. retail price $ 54.00


STOCK PENS

(For Cattle In Transit)

Many manufacturers have made kits of regular loading stock pens, but this kit from KANAMODEL  is the first for cattle in transit. Stock being moved from the range to the packing houses had to be unloaded from the stock car and fed and watered. This had to happen every so often and depending n the jurisdiction this could be from every 12 hours in some provincial jurisdictions to every 28 hours in the United States.. Stock trains on long trips could stop up to two times on the trip. The cattle were tended by workers known as "Drovers" who either rode in the regular caboose or a special caboose used in the USA called a "drovers caboose".  Our model has facilities to handle 4 cars. Included are 4 cast water troughs, and 4 cast feed bins located under an optional partial shelter. Cast feed hatches for the shelter roof are included and the platforms and walkways are laser cut from basswood. Over 9000 scale feet of colour coded stripwood is included. That is about 105 actual feet!!!  It is designed following a CNR design drawn in 1924. The footprint is 12" sq. with about a set back form the track of 2" 

KIT #1039. RETAIL PRICE $ 60.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL PORTABLES

The word portable means different things to the railroads than to the ordinary citizen. When a building was referred to as portable by the railroads it related to the foundation being temporary, such as timbers or ties etc. rather than  concrete or  stone which would be permanent. Portable to the railroads did not mean the building cold be picked up and moved at will to a new location. It is believed that referring to these buildings as portables  the railroads did not have to concern themselves with the local building bylaws that would apply to a permanent  structure. Our set of two buildings are based on CNR plans drawn in 1923. Included is a 4 man "portable" bunkhouse and a "portable" express office. Each has walls of shingles and wainscot plus custom cast windows and doors smoke jacks and bases for accuracy. Campbell shingles are included along with Mt. Albert scale lumber. The walls are a combination of laser cut clapboard siding and shingled chipboard. The footprints are 1.75" x 4.75" for the bunkhouse and  1.75" x 3" for the Express building.

CNR 500 TON ICE HOUSE

Until well past the middle of the 20th century railroads in the northern USA and in virtually all of Canada, harvested lake ice during the winter and stored it heavily insulated ice houses for later use in the ice bunker reefers that were in use to haul produce, meat, and other perishables before the advent of the mechanical reefers.  Our model is of the Canadian National standard 500 ton ice house and is modelled from plans drawn by the CNR in 1926 and supplied to us by the CNR SIG. Although it is of CNR heritage is was almost identical to the CPR and other railroads ice houses, including those in the Northern USA such as the Northern Pacific, Great Northern, Milwaukee Road, etc.  We have specially cast the intricate 3 story doors and the regular door to give this model the most accuracy of any model of this prototype. Laser cut walls plus an intricate loading platform made from the exact scale sized lumber called for on the plans make this an outstanding but easy to build foreground model. Mt Albert lumber and basswood is used throughout, and we even include blocks of "scale" ice. Footprint is 7.5" x 5.5"

KIT # 1041. RETAIL PRICE $ 49.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC PUMP HOUSE

This building was found near roundhouses and enginehouses and was used to generate steam for heating, running tools, and for any other use where large boilers were not necessary.  Another common use was at major passenger terminals where they pumped steam heat into passenger trains to warm them up while they awaited the locomotive.  The building housed the boiler on one side and a storage for coal on the other, giving the roof line a distinctive look. This building could also be used in other industrial applications such as a sawmill, mine etc. etc. It is scaled from Canadian Pacific Standard Plans. Laser cut Mt Albert lumber, colour coded stripwood, specially cast flash free windows, doors, base and stack,  self adhesive roofing material and easy to follow instructions are included. The footprint is 5.5" x 2.75".

KIT # 1042. RETAIL PRICE $ 39.00


GRAND TRUNK/CN SECTION HOUSE

This building was used to house the section foreman and his family on the Grand Trunk and on the Canadian National after they were amalgamated. After their use on the Railroads ended many were moved and are still used as private residences. This kit includes laser cut walls and specially cast windows, doors, chimneys, base, etc.,  plus Campbell papershake shingles for a realistic shingled roof. Mt Albert wood is used throughout. The footprint is 4" x 5.5".

KIT # 1045. RETAIL PRICE $ 50.00


GTW/CNR SECTION HOUSE COMBO

The above section house combo kit includes the following:  Kit  #1045 Section House, Kit #4015 Bunk House., Kit #4016 Speeder Shed and  Kit #4011 Tool House. This is a complete scene in one money saving box. the footprint depends of the layout of the four buildings but about 12" x 12" is the minimum.

KIT # 1046 RETAIL PRICE $ 90.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL 100 TON COALING TOWER

 Along with water, steam engines required a large amount of coal, until the advent of oil burners.  This mid sized tower is atypical of structures seen all over North America on minor main line terminals and on branch lines. Laser cut walls and a over 3000 scale feet of scale lumber will make this kit a unique masterpiece for any pike that runs steam. Grandt Line n/b/w castings are included and  windows, doors, chute, pulleys and bases are custom cast from oringinal patterns. Our comprehensive easy to follow instructions are included. The foot print is 4" x 5" but including track the depth required is at least 7".   The coal loading track and the service track are on 2" centers.

KIT #1047. RETAIL PRICE $ 95.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL SERVICE COMBO

Here is a money saving combo of the two most common pieces of loco servicing equipment. This kit combines the 100 ton coaling tower (kit 1047) and the 60,000 gallon enclosed water tank (kit # 1013) 

KIT # 1048. RETAIL PRICE $ 147.00


GTP/CNR TYPE "E"  STATION

Figures, vehicles and accessories available separately.

The only station more numerous than the class E station was the Canadian Northern/Canadian National number three design. Because there were over 300 of "E" stations built there were many minor variations and probably no two were exactly alike, but were all still built to the class E plan.   Kit features include Campbell shingles, laser cut Mt. Albert lumber, specially cast windows, doors, chimneys, and simulated concrete base,  laser cut passenger platform etc. Because of the complexity of the kit previous modelling experience in wood is suggested. The footprint is about 10" x 7". 

KIT # 1049. RETAIL PRICE $ 85.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL-CANADIAN NORTHERN CLASS 3 STATION

This was the most popular of the many variations of the class three station. It is built to plan #100-29. This model features stucco walls and is laser cut with specially cast windows, doors, base, chimneys, etc. The technique used on this kit was specially developed by us so that the corners meet without the usual corner posts. Campbell shingles are included for the roof. The footprint of this kit is about 8" x 6" including the rear add on pantry.

KIT # 1050. RETAIL PRICE $ 70.00 


CANADIAN NATIONAL/CANADIAN NORTHERN CLASS 3 STATION

This kit is identical to the kit above but has shingled walls instead of stucco. Campbell shingles are used. See details of the kit above for size etc.

KIT # 1051. RETAIL PRICE $ 70.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL 18 LEVER TOWER

These small towers were used by the CNR well past the end of steam to control turnouts, crossing gates, signals, smash boards etc. As an 18 lever configuration this building had levers to control up to 18 different functions. Besides the usual features found in all Kanamodel kits such as colour coded wood, laser cut siding, and easy instructions we have also cast special windows, doors and base, to give an accurate representation of this common building. We have also cast a special stair jig to make realistic stairs easily. The foot print is 2.5" x 2/25".

KIT # 1052. RETAIL PRICE $ 37.00


SOUTHERN PACIFIC SERVICE BUILDINGS

Up to now we have concentrated on Canadian Structures but this complex of small service buildings caught our eye and will make a fine addition to any layout. It features three different types of siding and three different different roofing materials and is composed of 3 different buildings (two with their own add ons) rolled into one structure. 5 different styles of cast windows are included along with a cast simulated concrete base. easy to follow instructions make this an ideal wood kit for a newcomer to wood modelling. Footprint is 8" x 3" 

KIT # 1053. retail price $ 38.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC #2 STORE HOUSE

NOTE: Freight and figures available seperately

This was a common building found at most engine terminals but is rarely modelled. This model will be about 9.5" x 5.5"  and will include an accurate loading platform on one side and one end. Although this is a specific railroad prototype, it can double as a warehouse or auxilliary industrial building etc. The concrete base will be cast and specially cast windows and doors will make building this kit easy and fun. Walls are laser cut Mt Albert Scale Models wood and the scale stripwood is colour coded for easy identification.

KIT # 1054. RETAIL PRICE $ 50.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL SANDHOUSE

 The plans for this kit were drawn from the original CNR plans dated 1948. These sand houses were used all over the CN western lines where full engine servicing facilities were located but the smaller 100T coaling plant such as our kit # 1047 was used. They lasted well into the age of the diesel, in fact one in Downtown Vancouver served diesel switchers with sand until the yards were shut down in the early 1980's. (Larger terminals had the 100T double coaling tower that had the sanding facilities enclosed in it and was able to service two engines simultaneously. Our upcoming version of this kit (THE BRANDON BUNKER) will be available in the spring of 2013.)  All parts are cast from original molds made only for this kit for the utmost in accuracy.  Laser cut wood and colour coded stripwood is made by Mt Albert scale lumber.  The footprint is  9" x 3" and will sit back about 3.5" from the track center.

KIT # 1055 RETAIL $ 50.00


CANADIAN NATIONAL SERVICE COMBO

This kit has been requested by several of our CNR customers. It is similar to our very successful CPR engine terminal sets and saves about 10% over the price if bought individually. Each kit is described on this web page. This includes kits # 1013, #1055 and #1047

KIT #1056 RETAIL  $ 182.00


CANADIAN PACIFIC FREIGHT HOUSE

This kit is of the standard 30' deep freight shed. They were used in smaller communities usually near the passenger station. larger cities had similar designed buildings but much large, both in length and depth. They were the backbone of the very profitable LCL (Less Than Carload Lot) business. As trucks took over LCL freight the freight houses were demolished, but may still stand often being used for other purposes. The model is 80 scale feet long and 40 scale feet wide so requires about 12" x 5" of space with a track set back of about 3/4" . Pictured is the front of the building. and the back is similar  but the doors have bumpers for truck loading. Walls are laser cut Mt. Albert wood as is the colour coded stripwood .Cast windows doors and concrete base are included. The footprint is 11.5" x 5.5" .
