Imagine just what happens to
a boom town depot when the "rush" dries up and the beautiful stone depot and its
activity are all but abandoned. And then along come the automobile and the
demand for gasoline to run those automobiles and a need to occasionally fix the
automobile. Some thrifty entrepreneur decides to save a few bucks by not having
to build a Service Station and what better way to fill the Gas Station tanks but
to have its own siding--or not!
This amazing kit comes with the *original* beautifully detailed Thomas A. Yorke Ent. castings of
stone, wood, and brick. This kit was first offered in the 1980s as the "Short Line Stone
Depot" (#SMM3108) and the construction, staining, and weathering instructions have been updated to currently
available products including easy to learn techniques in our Doctor Ben's How-To
#2: "The ABC's of Staining Castings" booklet/instructional.
