Product Description

On30 Tiny engine house


FRAME ONLY includes the wall frames, roof frames, apex roof vents and a planked floor for On30.

It has no coverings or windows/doors. - just the framework!

Comes in 2 lengths: 6 3/4" and 10"

This is a tiny shed, built specifically for Porters and Heisler, to squeeze into a tiny location. Perfect for micro layouts!   

My prototype sits on a small On30 module serviced by a 5" turntable. A Heisler wheel base will just fit the turntable so the smallest length of the shed is made just long enough to fit the Heisler, coupler to coupler.

The longer 10" version is great for Shay, Climax and Forney sized locos.

there is now a lean-to water tank option especially for this kit, available to order in the "building depot".

other parts from the KHM building depot that might be useful for your custom build

       ->   KHM 6" rib industrial corrugated iron.  Rolled from 0.15mm thick aluminium. this material is structurally strong and can be glued direct to the roof frame work or walls. it can be etched with ferrirc chloride to create a really rusty roof, or just painted. Includes narrow strips for the roof apex, and smaller sheets for the apex vents.

       -> wall boards - these are panels of laser cut individual planks, that are applied one by one onto the frame work. Some trimming will be needed. The material is a 0.8mm thick hardwood called obechi, very similar to basswood.

      -> stall doors  (KHM006-T)

      -> the side frames are designed to use KHM "engine shed windows". either the fixed pane  or opening pane types. (KHB008/KHB008A)
