UPDATE! "Say Hello to Our
Little Friend" ... the HO Freight Shed & Boiler Kit almost
ready to ship. In fact, we've already had a request by a
well known NG&SL Gazette author to do a review! We have a
bunch of HO the Rustic Stone & Frame Factory Kits to ship in
the next couple of days and "then" we' be back on the HO
Freight Shed & Boiler Kit—WHEW!
Sometimes, a brick is the
perfect tool!... Yes, you are reading this correctly and if
you haven't looked at the below image, now would be the time
to do so. A brick was necessary to assist in the assembly of
the O Scale Pilot Model roof to the structure. Sometimes;
have mentioned more than a couple of times in previous
Newsletters that the "Out Building forthe
Rustic Stone & Frame Factory Kit #3105 would
be offered as a separate structure kit. The new kit known as
the" Short Line Freight Shed & Boiler" kit will be basically
the same as the Out Building only with a bunch of "stuff"
added. The Short Line Freight Shed & Boiler kit will also
include stoneremnants 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.
