NSA-10016N Scale Architect Burlington Marble and Slate Kit
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 Architect Gruber Wagon Works Kit
This kit represents the Gruber Wagon Works as it was in 1904 at which point the power source for it’s internal pulley system was a Otto gasoline engine.
Though this Gruber Wagon Works kit does include a dock and ramps for loading wagons onto railcars, the prototype was never served by a railroad.
This kit includes an option for excluding this loading dock and includes longer ramps for lowering wagons from the second floor paint shop (the final stage of the production process) back down to ground level.
In case you were wondering… the paint shop is on the second floor because of the dust from the adjacent dirt road !
Should you wish to add buggies, wagons, carriages and other details to your completed model, please visit the Detail Parts and Shire Scenes sections of this web site to see dozens of detailing and vehicle items.
Finished model measures: 7¼”L x 6″W x 2¾”H.

NSA-10018N Scale Architect X-Cel Feed Kit
X-Cel purchased the mill in 1965 and converted it to a feed only plant that is still served by rail and bulk trucks today.

All of the individual structures included in this kit are fully supported and most can be placed in virtually any location to accommodate the space available on your layout or module. The elevator towers can also be positioned to suit the modelers preferences using the nearly four(4) feet of piping included in this kit. The sacks, sack stacks, barrels, barrel clusters, hand carts and figures shown on the label are available separately as part of our Making A Scene detail parts line. Finished model measures: 16″L x 8″W x 6″H.

NSA-10024N Scale Architect Conway Roundhouse Kit
The ‘Conway Roundhouse’ kit was inspired by the roundhouse still in use by the Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway, New Hampshire. This structure has been expanded and extended over the years into its current four stall version that provides one 7″ length stall and three 5″ length stalls. The longest stall will house a Mikado with tender, F-Units or E-Units and the other three stalls will hold yard and road switching locomotives such a S1s, RS11s, RS2/3s, and SW9/1200s.
The kit instructions include plans for track placement inside and outside of the round house using approximately one piece of 30″ flex track (code 80 or less is recommended). This round house can be used with turntables with 5.5″ to 10.375″ diameters including those from Kato, Walthers, Heljan, Peco, Atlas, and Bachmann. This laser-cut micro-plywood kit features step-by-step instructions which include scale drawings and assembly photos. The finished model measures 7-3/4″ W x 7″ D x 2″ H. The track center lines shown on the floor plan are based on a 10.375″ (130 Scale Feet) diameter turntable and can be adjusted to suit smaller diameter turntables by modifying the track angle or the roundhouse orientation.

N Scale Architect Grover Cleveland Mine Kit
The Grover Cleveland Mine is a composite of several small mining operations dating from the 1930’s to the 1960’s.
These mines varied in the minerals that they produced ranging from coal to precious metals.
The Head Frame allows ore to be pulled up from the mine shaft using a steam engine located in the Hoist House.
This ore is then pushed in a Mine Car by men or pulled by horses on a mine track via the Shaft House to the Gantry.
At the base of the Gantry, the Mine Car is hooked to a cable and then pulled up to the load-out area where it is dumped into a hopper car that will be taken to the local processing mill.
Waste rock is routed over another mine track and dumped into a tailings or culm pile.
Standard Configuration measures 1¾”x 8¾” and Optional Configuration measures 5½”x 5″. Includes all figures & vehicles shown.

NSA-10504N Scale Architect Lackawanna Coal Co. Kit
(10 x 11 x 6-1/2″ Footprint)
The prototypes that inspired this kit were located in the anthracite coal region of Northeastern Pennsylvania. In these immense structures know as “breakers” or “collieries,” anthracite was washed & broken into sizes usable for home heating & industrial processes. Breakers of the size and type represented by this kit were typically built in the 1930s to consolidate several smaller, older processing plants and many were still operational into the 1970s. At their peak, there were hundreds in operation and the several thousand employees that worked in them could process as much as 12,500 tons of coal in a single day. Coal was brought to the breakers for processing from the surrounding mines via extensive railroad lines and conveyors that could literally stretch for miles.
