Hoping all the PRR gurus here can help me identify this kit. Anyone know for sure? I only have a photo of the backside.

I'm pretty sure that's the Mountaineer Precision Products  PRR Type "A" station.

I think this photo is an HO version showing what the other side looks like

They are near impossible to find.   I don't think Mountaineer is producing kits anymore.   But I really liked
that one PRR station (I have one of those you pictured).  I thought it went together easily and looked great.  Unfortunately,
I don't have a place to use it on my layout anymore since it's not PRR.   It's such a pretty station that I'm tempted to repaint it in NP colors and use it anyway (I just heard a grenade drop in the hall and start rolling toward my desk from the PRR fans)

Don't worry just a stun!
Your hearing and sight will return in a few hours.
Meanwhile I'm downstairs in your basement frantically searching for it!  :D

That's just a distraction for what's really coming.  :trollface:

Mountaineer precision was here in town, well across the river in Florence, KY. For a while the kits were still showing up at local shows. The original owners son was trying to keep it going but I can't remember seeing them last year. Our local NMRA show is coming up in about a month. I will keep an eye out for any of the MPP kits and report back. I have a few of the kits and really wanted the Rabbit Hash general store but missed out.

** Rabbit Hash is a real town in Northern KY that has a population somewhere between 4 and 40, and has a dog for a mayor.

Pacific Western Rail shows they still have Rabbit Hash still in stock--http://www.pacific-western-rail.com/n_in_stock.php?PWRSManufacturers_ID=511

AFAIK, Mountaineer Precision Products is out of business. Their website is gone, and most dealers have pulled them from their catalogs.

It seems somebody has purchased the MPP product line and is planning to re-run short production batches.

Yes, short batches of only four of the MPP kits: Rabbit Hash General Store, Sugar Shack maple syrup barn, Langdon Mill elevator, and the Universal building storage shed.
