Product Description

On30 2 stall Small engine house.


FRAME ONLY Kit includes the wall frames, roof frames, the floor (boards cut for On30), and apex roof vents. everything else is DIY or buy doors, windows and roofing from our building supply depot.

Comes in 2 lengths: 9" and 13"

suitable for most On30 locos. 9" for geared locos and Forneys. 13" length will fit almost everything else in On30

if using larger On3 locos, or the Bachmann large 4-6-0, then look at our Large 2 road scale engine shed - It has On3/On30 options with On3 sized doors. 



-> frames:  cut from 3mm laser ply. they include tabs to aid construction.

-> Flooring: this includes a sub-base that will take Peco HO or ME On30 track, and basswood laser-cut panels which covers up the ties.

-> Roof apex vents: these are cut from 0.8mm (1/32") birch microply.

-> new for Sept23: smoke stacks and smoke hoods.  4 sets: (front and back for each stall)


* Optional extras for the frame kit, available from the "Building Depot" part of the website!

       ->   KHM 6" rib industrial corrugated iron.  Rolled from 0.15mm thick aluminium. this material is structurally strong and can be glued direct to the frame work. includes narrow strips for the roof apex, and smaller sheets for the apex vents.  I used this in the workshop variant of the kit.

       -> Shingle strips. these are plain light brown material laser cut card. they are not self stick.  you will need one pack. you will need to add a surface to the roof frame to stick them to! (card will do)  Not available yet.

       -> Obechi Wall boarding. these are laser cut boards,  0.8mm (1/32") thick, cut from obechi. its a hardwood sheet, quite like basswood but with a very slightly more pronounced grain. the idea is you can stain and apply boarding individually. you will need to trim them around windows. (KHB001) Available in 2 widths, you would need 2 packs for this structure. (both 9" and 13" lengths)

windows and doors are not included.  The frames are cut with KHM products in mind, but of course you can source your own. you might only want windows one side, or fewer windows than the kit frames can take.

      -> stall doors used for this kit are KHB006 or KHB007 (with windows)

      -> the side windows are designed to use KHM "engine shed windows"  KHB008 or KHB008A (with open vents). the 9" length will need a maximum of 2 packs of 4 windows, assuming you fit them all. the extended 13" version can take a max 3 pack of windows. but for sure you wont want that many!!

       -> the end windows (if you fit them) are cut for the sliding sash windows (KHB003A). There 4 in a pack.

       -> small roof-mounted water tank option is now available.

kit instructions are emailed in pdf format. there are no printed ones with the kit.
