I'll be using a few to recreate Jenkins Valve Company in Bridgeport CT.  But since the kit is a stock item and Atlas has a boatload on inventory, I can wait a while before picking them up.

It's a terrific kit.

I don't know if there is a "Kit of the year" in N-scale, but this one gets my vote.

My 10 came on Monday. I'm waiting for my Christmas $ from mommy so I can buy more. I'm going to be building some huge buildings for the switching layout with these, and I can't wait! As you can see the new track plan is going to require quite a few mill buildings...not all shown.



It is a very nice kit, and I hope it stays a regular stock item. Great job Atlas.

I have not seen the kit as available; odd that some of you have it.
Illinois must be in a foreign territory.

Here ya go.

Ooh, I think I might have a project!


This will make a substantial freight house to sit behind the Cumberland Station... The building shown above is the last surviving remnant of the old WM Hillen Terminal near downtown Baltimore.  The height and massing of the Middlesex kit are just about spot on.  I'll just have to modify the first floor to get the loading bays looking right, and add a little trim work...

Game on.

If you look really close you can see the "ghost" Western Maryland on the wall.  That will be cool on the model!

Except in my era the rusty sheet metal letters were still there...  that might be harder to model than the ghosts!

Try chart letters, or sand down those plastic menu board letters.

Depending on how fast you need them, I could cut out the letters for you with my Silhouette machine. But it would have to be after the holiday season.

No hurry...  I need to stockpile some boolah boolah to buy the kits I need.
