Footprint: 2-1/2" x 2-3/4" (+ stone remnants & boiler area)
We have mentioned more than a couple of times in previous DEBenLLC Newsletters that the "Out Building" for the Rustic Stone & Frame Factory Kit #3105 would be offered as a separate structure kit. Now available, the new kit known as the" Short Line Freight Shed & Boiler" kit will be similar to the "Out Building" only with some wall changes and a bunch of "stuff" added.
The Short Line Freight Shed & Boiler kit also includes stone remnants of what was once a boiler room as well as a free standing vertical boiler (shown in the above image) and a bunch of boxes, barrels and stacked sacks. Reservations may be purchased on our website by either clicking the above image or searching 3162 (HO)/9162 (O) on our website.
Now available, we have posted Pilot Model build updates and Pilot Model images on the website as well as at least one Newsletter prior to the release.
