Our car float will hold eight 40' boxcars on two tracks (rail not included). By having only two tracks, there are no switches required on the car float, allowing easy loading and unloading. Kit measures 16.5" in length, and 3.5" wide.

Manufacturer Information:
We welcome this opportunity to introduce you to our company, Sylvan Scale Models™. Our factory is located in a small hamlet 35 minutes north-west of London, Ontario, Canada. We manufacture fine quality cast polyurethane resin model railroad kits, which are prototypically accurate and finely detailed.

Sylvan Scale Models™ is owned by Clare Gilbert. Clare has been active in the model railroad hobby for over 25 years. Clare’s models have won him many awards at shows, and he has four certificates so far in the MMR program.

Clare has had articles published in Canadian Railway Modeller, NMRA Bulletin, and other periodicals. He is also the author of the book The St. Clair Tunnel: Rails Beneath the River, published by Boston Mills Press.

In addition to manufacturing cast resin model railroad kits, Sylvan Scale Models™ has built custom models for corporate customers, including Canadian National Railways, Toronto Transit Commission, Lovat Tunnel, Union Gas, Railworld Inc., Sifton Properties (London), Trojan Technologies Inc., GATX, and Freightcar America (formerly Johnstown America). Both floors of our shop have now been put into use, to meet the increasing demand for our products.
