Fidelity to Actual Structures

Model Railroad Themed Craftsman Structure Kits

Each of our kits is created with maximum fidelity to the original structure. Some of the prototypes are long gone; some are seriously compromised by years of neglect; some have been faithfully restored. Minor compromises are to allow for commercially available parts or selective compression to fit available model railroad layout space.

Archives, interviews, photos, CAD drawings all come together to recreate memories.
