Specific Item Information: The X-Cel Feed kit is based on a feed mill complex located in Tacoma, Washington. It was originally built in 1914 by the Kenworthy Company as a grain handling facility. Initially grain was received in boxcars with paper doors (inside the sliding doors) and was later modified to accept covered hoppers. The Kenworthy operation sold grain in bags and in bulk. X-Cel purchased the mill in 1965 and converted it to a feed only plant that is still served by rail and bulk trucks today. Though this kit is based on a specific prototype, its design is typical of large feed mill complexes that still stand across the United States. All of the individual structures included in this kit are fully supported and most can be placed in virtually any location to accommodate the space available on your layout or module. The elevator towers can also be positioned to suit the modelers preferences using the nearly four (4) feet of piping included in this kit.

Features: The sacks, sack stacks, barrels, barrel clusters, hand carts and figures shown on the label are available separately as part of our Making A Scene detail parts line. Finished model measures: 16" L x 8" W x 6" H

Road Name History:
A factory (previously manufactory) or manufacturing plant is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another.

Factories arose with the introduction of machinery during the Industrial Revolution when the capital and space requirements became too great for cottage industry or workshops. Early factories that contained small amounts of machinery, such as one or two spinning mules, and fewer than a dozen workers have been called "glorified workshops".

Most modern factories have large warehouses or warehouse-like facilities that contain heavy equipment used for assembly line production. Large factories tend to be located with access to multiple modes of transportation, with some having rail, highway and water loading and unloading facilities.

From Wikipedia

Brand/Importer Information:
The N Scale Architect was founded in 1991 by Russ Kaufman who has been active in model railroading since the early 1970s. Although many model railroaders received a Lionel Train as their first train set, Russ and his brother Bill were bitten by the model railroad bug in the form of an Aurora N-Scale set.

Russ started The N Scale Architect based on the encouragement of fellow modelers who thought that the plans he had drawn up for scratch building over the years might be enjoyed by others in kit form. The first kits featured detailed step-by-step instructions with hand drawn illustrations and plastic templates to be used for cutting the various pieces. This tradition of high quality instructions continues with the addition of "in-process" and color photos and, thanks to better computer aided programs, more detailed drawings. These templates have been replaced with laser-cut micro-plywood pieces along with the addition of many detailing castings which are now also available separately as part of their "Making A Scene" product line.
