Railroad Industry Models
These railroad industry models can be made using cardboard, a sheet of corflute, or foam board. Watch the demonstration videos on this website for several examples of the simple construction process. You’ll find the assembled buildings to be surprisingly durable when constructed, so will withstand many years (or decades) of display on a model train layout.
This series of 5 miniature PDF plans can be easily downloaded, printed, and built for display on OO scale, HO scale, or N scale train layouts. These railroad industry models not only look remarkably real, but they are also incredibly sturdy and designed to last for decades when constructed.
Ideal for HO scale, N scale, and OO scale backgrounds on model train layouts
The paper plans can be purchased individually, or you can take advantage of the special 67% pack deal and get all 5 plans including: B689 Hart Steel Co, B690 the Engine & Generator Maintenance Co workshop, plan B691 Auto Restorations workshop, plan 692 the W.S. Reed Cargo building, and plan B693 the Clarke & Williams Manufacturing Co building.
The 5 industrial buildings, warehouses, and workshops features above will look particularly real as a backdrop to railway yards that have many tracks in parallel for keeping the rolling stock and unused train engines stored off the mainline, so they don’t obstruct the flow of rail traffic. Railway yards typically consist of a complex system of train tracks with switches and crossings arranged for the purpose of sorting, storing, loading and unloading railway cars as well as assembling new trains into consists ready for departure.
