The Magic and Mystique of Engine Servicing Facilities If there is a land where dragons live, it lies before you. Ahead, dozens of the black monsters rest after battle. The sulfur smells of coal smoke, hot iron and oil mix in the hazy morning air.
Not long ago, places like Peach Creek, Cheyenne, Roanoke, Portland, Altoona and Spencer shook with the passage of these giants. Whether it was massive articulateds, Queens of the high-speed passenger fleet, or lowly yard goats, steam locos of every size were refueled, repaired and made ready for their next assignment.
And now, the glory days are back, in an all-new collection of seven HO Scale Cornerstone Series® kits from Walthers. Bigger Is Better Finally, you can model the support structures that your biggest and best engines deserve quickly, affordably and easily with Walthers kits.
Typical American designs, they'll handle any loco from 0-4-0 to 4-8-8-4 and each fits in a space that makes them practical for any layout.
Easy to Add or Expand Whether modernizing your existing terminal or building a new one, these kits are the perfect starting point.
They're easily mixed and matched with other structures to capture the look of newer facilities built to speed operations.
A Central Theme for Limited Space Like the feel of big-time railroading but think you don't have room? Think again!
Now you can easily design and build a realistic terminal with plenty of action in a small area. It's a perfect way to display and operate your favorite locos too. And, a facility like this provides nonstop work for one or two operators.
Adaptable to Many Eras Don't model the steam-era? Don't worry, you CAN use these structures on your layout!
Facilities like these appeared in the 1920s and some are still in use today. A Complete Series of Kits This complete series of Cornerstone Series kits brings you everything you need to model ALL of the facilities you'd find in a typical engine service terminal.
Measures: Buildng: 13-5/8 x 8-3/4 x 5-1/8" 34 x 21.8 x 12.8cm Smokestack: 10-1/4" 25.6cm Tall
While most roads had one major backshop, making repairs at outlying terminals was soon shown to be faster and more cost-effective. As new engine terminals were built, most received a machine shop capable of handling just about any type of repair that might be needed. This all-new kit matches the design of the Modern Roundhouse (933-2900, sold separately), and can be built as an attached or freestanding building. It also includes a boiler house, which would supply steam, electricity and compressed air to the entire facility. Large roll-up doors can be built open or closed, and the baseplate has slots that accept popular rail sizes.
NOTE: Unless specifically indicated above, structure kits and built-ups do not include any pictured figures, vehicles, scenery, track, or trains. These are included in manufacturer provided images to demonstrate how the product may be used on your layout.
