NYCSHS Model Offerings

We Are Considering a Model And

We Need Your Thoughts

Screen Shot 2020-04-05 at 8.37.10 AM

We are considering two potential MCRR depots to be offered as our next NYCSHS structure model and we need your help in deciding which one to offer.
 

The first kit that we are  proposing would be a MCRR station produced in HO-scale by The N-Scale Architect who produced our NYC LS&MS Lines West brick and stone depot kit a couple of years ago.  It will be a wood laser cut kit. The kits would be un-assembled and would be painted by the modeler.

The kit will be based on the depot that still exists at West Branch, Michigan on Michigan Central’s Bay City to Mackinaw City line now operated by the Lake States Railway. The prototype depot is a combination depot with separate sections for passenger waiting room, operator’s office complete with bay window and baggage section.
 
The depot is constructed of wood and features board and baton siding with a gabled roof and is trimmed with Victorian era accents.
 
Other Michigan Central depots of the same style were located at Decatur, Eden, Francisco, Irving, Jones, Roscommon, Sherwood, Vandalia and West Branch, Michigan; Chrisman and South Bend, Indiana; as well as Buxton, Chippawa, LaSallette, Mull, Oil City, Stevensville and Victoria Park, Ontario Canada.
 
These depots were located along the Buffalo to Chicago via Detroit Mainline as well as the Fort Erie, Grand Rapids, Mackinaw, Michigan Air Line, Niagara, Oil City, Saginaw and St Joseph Branches.

The second option would be this MCRR station produced in HO-scale by The N-Scale Architect who produced our NYC LS&MS Lines West brick and stone depot kit a couple of years ago.  It will be a wood laser cut kit. The kits would be un-assembled and would be built and painted by the modeler.

The kit will be based on the depot that still exists at Derby (Stevensville), Michigan on Michigan Central’s St Joseph Branch which ran between South Bend, Indiana and St Joseph, Michigan. The prototype depot is a combination depot with separate sections for passenger waiting room, operator’s office complete with bay window and baggage section. The depot is constructed of wood and features shiplap siding with a hip roof. There were many examples of this style of depot spread across the Michigan Central and Canada Southern Railways.

While there were many different sizes of this style of depot as well as door and window arrangements, they all shared the same design elements. However two common variations occurred on these depots. The first variation was the siding. Some depots were entirely sided with shiplap siding from foundation to the soffit; other depots had a piece of horizontal trim that encircled the depot at the top of the windows. Vertical tongue and groove siding was then installed between this trim and the roof’s soffits. The second variation was a ground levelor raised baggage section. The raised baggage sections allowed parcels to be slid directly from the raised floor to a cart and to the train with out even lifting. Depots with raised floors have a baggage room door with no windows, while low floored baggage rooms have a transom windows above the baggage door. It is hoped that the kit will include these options to allow the modeler to customize the kit allowing for four different versions of the kit to be built without kitbashing.   

Other Michigan Central depots of the same style were located at Auburn, Bach, Baroda, Chester, Derby, Eckford, Glendora, Glenwood, Midland, Munger, Rives Junction, Thomas, Utica, Vanderbilt and Wahjamega Michigan as well as Charing Cross, Hagersville, Iona and St Davids Ontario, Canada.  

These Michigan Central depots were located along the Buffalo to Chicago via Detroit Mainline as well as the Bay City, Caro, Grand Rapids, Mackinaw, Midland, Moscow, Niagara, Saginaw and St Joseph Branches.

AMB HO-Scale NYC Caboose Kits

(Tongue & Groove – Lot 732)               (Lot 732 Pacemaker)

Screen Shot 2018-02-27 at 4.26.15 PM

The Lot 732 caboose was built on the steel fish belly frames of 1910 era 36’ boxcars in 1944. The 50 cabooses in the Lot were numbered 20100-20149. While they look like a standard 19000 series caboose they are longer with a distinctive steel C channel along the bottom of the body. In 1946, five cabooses were rebuilt with plywood sides, different brake equipment and were painted gray and crimson for Pacemaker service.

These NYCSHS exclusive HO-scale kits are laser cut and are a joy to build. They are less trucks but (Westerfields Models has the correct trucks).   Offered here in the store at: http://www.nycshs.net/American-Model-Builders-Laser-Kits-HO-Scale_c_76.html .   The kits come with the decals for the appropriate kit.

Non-members price is $64.95. NYCSHS Members Price $51.96 and that is 20% off MSRP for members. Shipping is extra and Ohio residents pay 8% Ohio sales tax.

NYC Lines East Brick Manual Towers HO- and N-Scale

We asked The N-Scale Architect to produce this limited run Society exclusive tower kit for us and he has come through.  The kits are available in HO- and N- scale.   Both of these kits have been produced with considerable technical support from the NYCSHS Modelers Committee and we are sure they are prototypically correct.

They are being produced now and are available in the Collinwood Shop.

HO- Scale M.R.S.P. $87.50   NYCSHS Member Price $70.00 and both of these are considerably less than we had estimated before.

NYC 19000 Plywood Side Caboose Kit (HO-Scale)

NYCSHSLabelSingle

These kits are not of the same model of caboose that we have commissioned to be delivered next year as ready to run models of the tongue and grove versions of this caboose. However, we decided to take advantage of these kits and offer the plywood version as an exclusive NYCSHS model.  These kits of the plywood cabooses are only offered through the NYCSHS and not available elsewhere.  Our initial order of these is limited to only 50 kits so you need to order today so as not to miss out on these beautiful model kits.

The MSRP for these kits is $59.95 but are offered to NYCSHS members for 20% off at $47.96 plus shipping and handling costs.  Ohio residents must pay 8% Ohio Sales tax.

These cabooses are in stock and ready to ship!!
