Snow Shed

                                                                                                        Rolling Stock, Track & Scenery Not Included

Mountain Railroads from the Rockies To the High Cascades have encountered and battled the ongoing problems of Winter Snow Falls. One of the ways they got around snow on the mainline was construction of snow sheds to cover the track. These sheds covered a wide array of design styles from railroad to railroad.  

Sidetrack Laser has designed a generic Snow Shed loosely following a Great Northern Design. You can install this kit as a stand alone installation or string them together with a little kit Bashing.

TOFC Combo Kit

                                                                                                                   Rolling Stock & Track Not Included
During the early days of TOFC Service, loading and unloading was a labor intensive operation. Many railroads like the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy (CB&Q); Maine Central & Rio Grande built and installed elevated walkways at some of their TOFC terminals to make it easier for yard personnel to handle tie down equipment, landing gears and hitch bases.

Unlike our HO & O Scale Kits; Sidetrack Laser will only offer the Combo Kit in N Scale. The Combo Kit will give you one loading ramp & two walkways.

A distinctive feature on our N Scale TOFC Combo Kit is the Laser Cut Brick Foundation. Like the rest of the kit, it comes unfinished. It's not difficult to finish paint the brick work & weather the kit so it appears hard used from your railroads TOFC Traffic. 

Footprint:  7 1/2" x 2 1/2"
