Specific Item Information: The Racquette Lake Navigation Company is a two-track car slip and apron that allows for loading and unloading of rail cars on to carfloats or ferries. It is based on a Pacific Northwestern prototype that was still in use through the 1970's. The control house and towers house the mechanism that allows the apron to be raised and lowered to accommodate different ship and tide heights. The other end of the apron is supported by the apron base which can be built into the shoreline of a layout or module. The completed model measures approximately 4¼"L X 4"W x 5"H which allows for an off-layout transfer point without a large investment of real estate !!!

This completely re-designed laser-cut kit is a perfect match for our ALL NEW carfloat kit, The Hudson (#10061). This kit is inspired by the hundreds of carfloat that used to ply the waters across bays, rivers and lakes where a railroad bridge was not practical. This particular version measures 162' long and 42' wide with a simplified two-track design that avoids the complexity of installing an onboard turnout. The deck design utilizes standard Atlas code 80 flex-track which eliminates the need to hand-lay individual rails. This laser-cut multi-media kit also features rub strip, hatch, bumper & bollard details and an internal support system. The completed model measures approximately 12¼"Lx3"Wx1"H and can hold up to six(6) standard 50' freight cars.

Road Name History:
Railroad structures include but are not limited to stations, depots, yard offices, interlocking towers and tanks. A train station, railway station, railroad station, or depot is a railway facility where trains regularly stop to load or unload passengers or freight.

It generally consists of at least one track-side platform and a station building (depot) providing such ancillary services as ticket sales and waiting rooms. If a station is on a single-track line, it often has a passing loop to facilitate traffic movements. The smallest stations are most often referred to as "stops" or, in some parts of the world, as "halts" (flag stops). Stations may be at ground level, underground, or elevated. Connections may be available to intersecting rail lines or other transport modes such as buses, trams or other rapid transit systems.

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.
