The brick looks like Holgate & Reynolds HO brick sheet cut up into pieces.  This just might belie the intentions of a company calling itself "N Scale" Architect.

Its not. It is most likely the brick they started using and we discussed about ~2006ish. It is larger than N, but not the H&R stuff.

I have both brick sheets and the N Scale Architect stuff is not the same as H&R.  H&R is slightly larger and has crisper mortar lines.  Also the H&R brick sheets were not styrene (PVC maybe?).

This might be an urban myth, but I've heard that the reason H&R bricks are no longer being made is because some drug addict stole the copper dies and sold them as scrap to feed their habit.  :facepalm:
