Specific Item Information: Typical of a small town passenger stop where insignificant freight movement did not warrant a combination railroad structure, the design of this structure provided both ticket and work office for the agent with very minimal waiting room space for the passenger inside. Instead, a small platform located on the trackside of the depot afforded space for the rider to await the arrival of the train. Although simple in nature, the Branchline Depot offers the N scale modeler custom scribed wood siding, interior flooring, and exterior wood deck platform; train order and station sign boards; Victorian style end roof eave brackets; positionable window sashes; rolled roofing; and a white metal smoke jack. As with all of our laser-cut structure kits, Kit No. 631 utilizes Tab & Slot constructed walls and roof and Peel & Stick windows, doors, trim, and roofing for ease of assembly. The completed depot with waiting platform measures 1.75" long x 1.5" wide x 1.375" high.

Road Name History:
Although they may be molded in color, unpainted and unlettered, undecorated products are marketed to modelers who seek to custom decorate their models for private roads and/or road and/or company names that were not commercially produced by any of the major manufacturers.

Undecorated models are frequently also unassembled or only partially assembled and required modelers to be comfortable with glue, paint and sometimes solder in order to prepare their models for display. Materials for these models can vary but often include plastic, pewter and resin. Models may or may not come with decals or other decorations such as plastic signage, railings and ladders to enhance the appearance of the final product.


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.
