Prototype Description: Since the late 1800's, commercial preserving operations such as those run by H. J. Heinz, L.C. Forman, Keokuk Canning and Hirsch Brothers depended on the railroads to bring their raw materials from the fields and their delicious products to market. Our 'Pattersons Pickle & Brine' (#10043) and ‘Pickle Vat Expansion’ (#10044) kits emulate these turn of the century pickling plants that often found new life as distilleries, breweries and acid factories. This car kit is one of two(2) types of specialized tank cars that supported these pickling operations. This 46 foot 4-tank version follows prototypes made by Thrall, GATC, ACF and other manufacturers from the early 1900's up until the 1950's.

Road Name History:
This set of items is comprised of more than one name. Please look at the component items for details on the specific roadnames and/or manufacturers.

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.
