Prototype History:
The Sierra Railway contracted with the Overton company to produce combine and coach sets used only on the Angels Camp branch where the short switchback tails limited the car length. 2-3 sets of the cars were built, in the early 1900s. Overton passenger cars are short, open platform, truss-rod cars with clerestory windows. It was natural to design the clerestory over the passenger compartment only, without continuing it over the end platforms, as there was no need for light and ventilation on the open platforms; however, it was soon found to be easier to build a full length clerestory without a complex joint at the ends. The clerestory actually weakened the structure of the car, as well as adding top-weight and cost. As far as we can tell, 'Overton' has become a sort-of generic term for early passenger cars with the above features.

Road Name History:
Some items are designed to have their owner add whatever company marking they choose, usually in the form of decals or dry-transfers. These items are painted in a generic prototypical fashion but with all company affiliation deliberately left off.


Brand/Importer Information:
Like any great idea, ours came from of a personal desire for a realistic, N-Scale frontier layout. Old West Scenery answers that need with more than 60 complete N-scale ready buildups and scenery items. These structures are created with such amazing detail, you’ll feel like you have been transported back in time!

Our laser printed buildings & scenery products draw inspiration from iconic western towns, like Deadwood, Yuma, Dodge City, and Tombstone. Rustic frontier towns such as these tamed the unforgiving territories, alongside the mighty railroads that made their way across the American Frontier. All our N-Scale products are 3D printed using the latest laser technology in a process called “Additive Manufacturing”. This process allows us to produce complete buildings, ready to be painted and placed on your layout. No more glue or tape. No more finagling with small parts. And best of all, no more frustration and disappointment when your DIY kit just doesn’t turn out quite the way you hoped!
