I'm sorry Bill, I started it and got side tracked with all the virus stuff and my Masonic Lodge duties. Besides that the NMRA Sunshine Region which I am the President of, is giving me a fit as directors are not doing the jobs they signed on to do.
I will willingly relinquish the job for now and when I get them done I will still forward them to you for your evaluation. Who knows, yours might even be better than what I was thinking anyway.

any chance you'd post a photo or two of that box?
i'd like a shot at making one as my lumber yard is in tubes and

I had saved mailing tubes to store the lumber, and labeled the tubes
with the sizes. It was a mess and took up a lot of space. One day
Frank walked into my shop and presented me with 7x8x28 inch, 7 drawer
box. The drawers had dividers to hold HO scale 1x2's through 12x12's,
plus two bottom drawers to hold his siding material.

thanks.

Re: PSC tank car kits

On the early Van Dykes, #7-11, White Pass fitted their "69-class" trucks. I believe that these were duplicates of the Baldwin tender trucks supplied with locomotives 68 & 69, which were 56" WB, 26" wheel trucks, with roughly equal slopes to the top and bottom bars.

I have examined most of the nominal 6500 gallon tank shells purchased from UTLX postwar, and all that I examined showed evidence of the distinctive Van Dyke body bolster, either remnants of the torch trimmed casting or plugged rivet holes. These postwar purchases were initially mounted on a mix of WP&Y wood flats and ex. USATC steel gondolas (with wood sides removed), latterly all were on on steel flats, mostly 11xx. flats.

Thanks John.  I was going to make it into one of the White Pass cars anyway, but was unaware of running board relocation.  I haven't gotten around to studying pictures of them yet.  What type of trucks did they use? 

Thanks again!

Re: Update: NEW HO/HOn3 Broad Top Mountain Models East Broad Top RR Machine Shop Kit

Hi Mike,

Thank you for the kind words. To be honest, I can't take the credit, it has to go to Bill Banta of Banta Modelworks. Bill has done the design work, cutting, directions and will also be doing the kit packaging for me; I just supplied him with the idea and drawings: purchased through the FEBT. company store.

The Machine shop has a footprint of approx. 14x22 inches and is intended, like the prototype, to be the centerpiece of any EBT or freelanced HOn3 layout!

Thank you!

"Nathan, you are to be congratulated!

These look like beautiful kits.

Only problem is, I can’t see how I can justify them on a 24” X 21 ft D&RG Chili Line Layout.  🤔

Just to clarify...the pre-order price of $150 was a special extra discounted price for the first 15 orders, which has been met. Since then there were some necessary design changes that resulted in a price increase. The $240 price is the new and permanent price as a result of the price increase due to design changes. This price includes insured USPS Priority Mail shipping to the continental US, a $25 value. PA residents charged 6% PA sales tax.

The footprint for the machine shop is approx. 14x22 inches.

The car shop was initially to be included, however, design constraints resulted in some extra design work to be able to make the machine shop be modified to accept the boiler house and car shop (At that time the decision was made to make three separate kits, like the Whiteground kits were designed, our next kit will be the boiler house, but I have yet to update the website to reflect this, and then the car shop followed by the remaining shops complex structure

If anyone has any questions or concerns please e-mail me off-list at nathan.kline83@... and I will be happy to answer you questions and concerns there.

Nathan Kline


"Gents the 240 price was a pre release price as I was told.
The original price was to be 150 for the complete kit less the boiler house.
I haven’t heard from Nate regarding the car shop building other than its next.

So, our boy is selling at $240, but we’re forced to advertise at $300. Some deal. Even with 15% discount for FEBT members, we can’t even match his price. And it includes shipping. It’s obvious to me, he’s just using us for advertising/marketing.

I wonder if Ric Case is undercutting us too. I’ll have to check out his store.
