  • The Magic and Mystique of Engine Servicing Facilities If there is a land where dragons live, it lies before you. Ahead, dozens of the black monsters rest after battle. The sulfur smells of coal smoke, hot iron and oil mix in the hazy morning air.
  • Not long ago, places like Peach Creek, Cheyenne, Roanoke, Portland, Altoona and Spencer shook with the passage of these giants. Whether it was massive articulateds, Queens of the high-speed passenger fleet, or lowly yard goats, steam locos of every size were refueled, repaired and made ready for their next assignment.
  • And now, the glory days are back, in an all-new collection of seven HO Scale Cornerstone Series(R) kits from Walthers. Bigger Is Better Finally, you can model the support structures that your biggest and best engines deserve quickly, affordably and easily with Walthers kits.
  • Typical American designs, they'll handle any loco from 0-4-0 to 4-8-8-4 and each fits in a space that makes them practical for any layout.
  • Easy to Add or Expand Whether modernizing your existing terminal or building a new one, these kits are the perfect starting point.
  • They're easily mixed and matched with other structures to capture the look of newer facilities built to speed operations.
  • A Central Theme for Limited Space Like the feel of big-time railroading but think you don't have room? Think again!
  • Now you can easily design and build a realistic terminal with plenty of action in a small area. It's a perfect way to display and operate your favorite locos too. And, a facility like this provides nonstop work for one or two operators.
  • Adaptable to Many Eras Don't model the steam-era? Don't worry, you CAN use these structures on your layout!
  • Facilities like these appeared in the 1920s and some are still in use today. A Complete Series of Kits This complete series of Cornerstone Series kits brings you everything you need to model ALL of the facilities you'd find in a typical engine service terminal.
  • American Prototype used by Many Roads
  • Compact Size for Maximum Detail in Minimum Space
  • Detailed Tower, Machinery Shed & Pit
  • Positionable Bucket & Dump Chute
  • Decal Signs Included
  • Measures: 2-1/4 x 3-3/4 x 5-1/2" 5.6 x 9.3 x 13.7cm Pit Depth: 7/8" 2.1cm Below Track
  • A must for any steam-era layout, equipment like the new Cinder Conveyor and Ash Pit could be found in terminals large and small. Based on a Fairbanks-Morse design introduced in the late 1920s, conveyors like this served until the last day of steam. The kit includes a detailed "steel" tower, positionable dump chute and bucket, plus a complete under-track pit for more realism.

"It's probably my fault, but..."
This was not an easy build for me. I got it done, including painting but a long time ago (2004-ish?) and I did not have the skills I have today (definitely not even close to a master modeler) so I wouldn't recommend this model kit to a novice. Today it looks good in use in a joint SP/TNO/SF engine service facility set in New Mexico in the late twenties and early thirties, in conjunction with a Walthers water tower built-up on a getaway track (WRR2813), a Walthers steel main facility water tank kit (WRR3043) a Model Power coaling tower (MDP410) and an old Bachmann sanding towers kit. The facility is still under construction and I'm about ready to model the fuel oil supply tracks, as not all locos are coal burners. When taken together they make for an interesting loco running maintenance/service facility without going broke to do it. If you are modeling coal burning engines you really do need this model at the roundhouse. Skill level aside, I can recommend this kit
