  • Lehigh Valley Models - LVM 1 - Branchline Station (Craftsman Kit - Stripwood, castings, etc) $ 80.00 Cdn

    There is no picture on the box or indication of prototype dimensions.
    The kit appears to be a former 'Delaware Valley Kit'.
    Measuring the plans:
    Looking at it from the front, the building is 5 1/4" wide by 4 1/2" deep. There is a square bay on the right side of the front that makes this portion of the structure 5 1/4" deep. It will be 4 1/2" high (ignoring the chimney).
    According to the instructions it will occupy a space of 7" x 8" including the roof overhang.

    The kit consists of strip wood, milled basswood (I think) board and batten siding, metal castings for the windows, doors and chimney, paper shingles, thick cardboard formers for the roof and acetate for the window glass. The owner of the kit has built the foundation.
  • All items are complete in original boxes.
