Specific Item Information: The Illinois Central built a series of new, smaller depots during the post WWII era as a cost savings measure. Many of the company’s older deports were in need of extensive repairs and the decline of passenger service on several lines made it more economical to tear down the original structure and then build a replacement out of new and salvaged lumber. The type “A”, represented by our newest N scale kit, was one of the largest of the four standard designs measuring 36’-3” in length and 16’-3” wide at the end walls. It had a separate waiting room for passengers, an office for the agent, and an express-baggage-freight area. Kit #618 features custom laser-scribed and cut plywood walls and roof, white metal chimney, and a screen door on the passenger waiting room as well as Peel & Stick windows (with individual sashes), doors, trim, and 3-Tab shingles. The kit may be built with either the passenger waiting room on the left or right hand side. The assembled IC depot measures 3” long x 1.5” wide x 1.25” high.

Brand/Importer Information:
LASERKITS are designed in a Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) program, then laser-machined at our computer-controlled laser workstations.

LASERKITS are cut and engraved from high quality woods (and occasionally styrene) with incredible precision and accuracy. The resulting edges are clean, need little, if any, sanding, and yield precise details, and exact-fitting parts.

There is no frustrating, time-consuming, board by board construction with LASERKITS. Side and roof pieces are tabbed and slotted, so no error can be made during assembly. Windows, doors, roofing materials, shingles, and trim boards are all laser-cut, and have a self adhesive backing which has been tested in the St. Louis summer heat and humidity, and found to hold under the most adverse conditions.
