A Grain Elevator for Your Model Railroad Layout
Perfect for Almost Any Layout Theme
|Armour's Warehouse, circa 1913|
The plans for Armour's Warehouse show a typical "county elevator" where farmers bring their grain for shipment by railroad or canal boat. Simple changes, such as wood or metal siding, can date the building anywhere from the steam to diesel railroad eras. And, since grain was shipped in closed rail cars (first in box cars, later in covered hoppers), model railroaders don't need to worry about simulating loads in cars leaving the elevator on their layout.
