Trackside Shanty Kit

The Atlas "Trackside Shanty" is typical of the countless many unpretentious little shanties you might see at just about any railroad installation. It served as an office in an engine terminal or small yard and sometimes for a grade crossing watchman. Ages 7 and over, adult supervision required.

"Lovely little kit!"
jdw3rd (Rhode Island)
This is a lovely little kit with clean molding and a nice integral base. Included is a small clear plastic sheet for window glazing which was a pleasant surprise ( needed to be trimmed a wee bit ). Molded in appropriate colors so you can skip painting if you wish - Testors plastic model paint worked just fine. I used Testors plastic model cement to paint the exposed surfaces of the base and then pressed them into turf prior to assembly. This kit includes two unpainted seated figurines that will be a challenge to paint - 00 or 000 brush and magnifying loop light required!

"Realistic looking shanty"
Very easy to assemble. I liked that it included people with it. Wish more kits would do that. Fits into my display very well.
