I really hope that someday they shrink the Front Street Warehouse to N scale.

Walthers takes a lot of abuse when it comes to N scale, but they are almost the only manufacturer who makes large structures in N scale.

Holy crazy madness!?! Walthers made something I can use! I will buy one just for the parts, they will work great for some other buildings I have planned!

Wow, what a nice looking model, and much needed in N.   I'm envious, although I might eventually buy one to adapt to Z.

Yes, will add my kudos to Walthers for this one.  Thanks to them, structures have kept up with locos and rolling stock in quality over the years.

While some complain about their former lack of commitment to rolling stock, IMHO, without their commitment to structures in N (yes, even with HO getting a few more due to sales volume) those of us actually building layouts centered around operations and switching would be out of luck.  I still remember all those Euro looking buildings on my early layouts. 

Will I buy one?  I managed to horde the old Nu Line warehouses which are similar, and have one Central Beverage standing in as a Wall board company, and I think my layout is about full.  Now, if I can convince the wife to let me enclose the upstairs outside balcony for expansion, put me in for six!

Take out some doors and add more AC units and a diesel generator and you have an Amazon data center.

Or, you could add some additional doors and model a small FedEx or UPS terminal building.
