Specific Item Information: Burlington Marble & Slate was inspired by slate, limestone, blue stone, granite and marble finishing mills that existed across the United States since the early 1800's. The use of these materials declined and by the middle of the 1900's many of these mills were closed. Blocks of stone are brought from the quarry on specialized wagons that ride on a narrow gauge track system (M-TRAK). Finished products including headstones, shingles, columns, and stone work are shipped directly via rail car or to another loading point via the narrow gauge railway. M-TRAK and the scenic details shown are available as part of our "Making-A-Scene" product line. The laser-cut stone and shingle pieces featured in this kit are created from our "Model Builder’s Supply Line" styrene building sheets which are available separately. N Scale model measures approximately 14"L x 6"W x 3"H.
Road Name History:
A factory (previously manufactory) or manufacturing plant is an industrial site, usually consisting of buildings and machinery, or more commonly a complex having several buildings, where workers manufacture goods or operate machines processing one product into another.

Factories arose with the introduction of machinery during the Industrial Revolution when the capital and space requirements became too great for cottage industry or workshops. Early factories that contained small amounts of machinery, such as one or two spinning mules, and fewer than a dozen workers have been called "glorified workshops".

Most modern factories have large warehouses or warehouse-like facilities that contain heavy equipment used for assembly line production. Large factories tend to be located with access to multiple modes of transportation, with some having rail, highway and water loading and unloading facilities.

From Wikipedia
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.
