UPDATE! OK, we knew
that this would be a popular offering, but we didn't expect
to be buried in questions and requests about this kit.
One our our more popular N Scale
products has been the Tilt Up Spline Style Walls (CLICK
HERE to see)
and lots of HO modelers have asked when we would be bringing
out the Thomas Yorke Tilt Up Walls as well. We were thinking
about bringing the HO Tilt Up Walls as part of our "Scratch

"extra walls and parts" for the G-Street Warehouse kit will
mean that the "Scratch Buildin' Series" will kick off a
little sooner than planned, and will include the G-Street
Warehouse kit and components. Stay tuned!

Finally, at right we received the prototype image of an
electric generating station that is very similar to the
G-Street Warehouse model with the addition of lower walls,
large industrial windows and a large door that would
accommodate a boxcar or gondola. I'll bet that there are
photos of a ton of very similar prototype facilities out
there so if you have one or have a link to one, of know of
one, please share it with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and
we'll add it to our collection!

in San Bernardino, California. The original cast concrete
structure was built around 1920, but it has seen some
changes over the years and our rendition incorporates these.
Our patterns reflected the uneven and rough wooden form
