Product Description

O scale 2 Road Engine Shed. Suits smaller loading gauge of UK Locomotives.

A mixed brick and wooden engine shed that will make a superb centre point for your small locomotive works.

Goes great with Kitwood Hill Models 13.5" turntables.  (48ft TT in 7mm/ft O scale)

THIS KIT HAS BEEN CONVERTED to include 7mm/ft standard gauge

The On30/On3 version is still available!!

2019 7mm/ft conversion:

1. larger doors. Completed.

2. floor to raise building up to match peco and C&L sleeper height Completed

3. simplified smoke hoods raised to match door height  Completed

4. slate roof....Work in progress.

sliding door detail and hinged doors with working hinges. 2019 upgrade has bigger doors to accommodate small UK tank engines. The standard gauge floor is designed to accommodate peco O scale wooden sleeper track, lifting the structure up to the height of the sleepers so the doors don't have a huge gap under them to clear the track.

Hinged doors can be fitted both ends - tick option if you wish to include extra doors.

With a 15” x 10” footprint this kit produces a large, yet highly versatile structure, capable of being used with several layout options. The internal length of 360mm will accommodate 50ft locos.

The roof can be built as removable to show off the detailed roof and wall framing and any additional internal detail the modeller may choose to add. The wall surfaces are detailed with interior viewing in mind so it looks great both inside and out.

Although the kit has many parts the modular assembly method makes for a straightforward build. Each subassembly is packed separately within the kit to aid construction in stages. A comprehensive 20 page assembly guide with over 165photos takes you through each stage, step by step.

The instructions are not printed! they come in pdf format when the kit is shipped. If you wish to see them first please email me sales@kitwoodhillmodels.com. no obligation - electrons are free :)

 

Kit features include:-

* laser-cut brick wall sections. Flemish bond brick pattern (inside and out!) with interlocking brick corners - no seams to hide afterwards.

* Sliding doors with exposed sliding roller mechanisms. Very cool :)

* Individual batten and board siding on detailed frames look great inside and out.

* end walls can be alternatively arranged so there are 2 windows and one set of hinged doors at either end, or 2 sets of doors both ends.

* Roof apex vents have slatted louvre.

NOTE THAT THIS KIT IS MADE TO ORDER. So it has a typical 3-4 week lead time between ordering and shipping.

ROOF OPTIONS:

1. DIY. no roof covering is supplied - you can use your own favourite method. this is the default selection if you choose nothing.

2. corrugated iron roof! With this option you'll get 18pcs of scale 8ft and 4pcs of 6ft strips of our corrugated aluminium, representing 6"rib corrugated iron. More than enough to cover the whole roof with plenty of margin for overlaps. adds £18 to cost

3. Slate: work in progress.

4. Shingles: these are no longer the printed ones you see in the photos, but rather laser cut thick card that you will need to paint to your chosen colour. Adds £5.00 to cost

Here are some pics from a kit built up by German modeller Dirk Tegethoff (posted by kind permission). Superb weathering using Fe chloride etching on KHMs aluminium corrugated "iron"!

  1. 2 Road Engine Shed Build 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2019

    This was my first kit from Kitwood Hills and I really enjoyed building it. I've added lights and detail to mine, but the kit was great to put together. My On30 engines go in it with no problem and it was a lot of fun to build. Took me about 70 hours but the time went fast. I gave 4 instead of 5 stars as the directions were sometimes hard for me to follow and the pictures were dark. I wish there had been clearer directions with more pics, but other than that Simon makes a great kit.

    First wood kit I've built. It was lot easier than I thought and very absorbing; a highly recommended purchase.
