garden scale Fort STtele stage coach office

Plan 556g - Stage Coach Office

PDF Plan Package: $7.95

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 11 11/32" x 12 9/16" (approx.)

Fort Steele was one of several gold rush towns in the early history of British Columbia. The stage coach office was one of many businesses serving roughly 1000 residents. Beginning around 1899 Fort Steele began to suffer the fate of other gold rush towns, as the Canadian Pacific Railway route favored the nearby town of Cranbrook. In 1961 Fort Steele was declared an historic park. The Friends of Fort Steele Society have worked hard to preserve and restore over 60 buildings, to create a fascinating tourist destination, which can include a ride on an early 1900's steam train.

 

garden scale Art-deco Diner

Plan 635g - Molly's Diner

PDF Plan Package: $9.95

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 1' 8" x 8 1/2" (approx.)

Although they resembled railroad dining cars, the classic art deco American diners were mainly purpose-built, pre-fabricated units complete with interior equipment and furnishings. Companies such as O'Mahony, Kullman, Fodero and others built single and modular units designed to be delivered to location by truck or railroad and set up either temporarily or permanently. The glory days of these diners was roughly between the 1920's and 1940's. Several of these are still in existence and have been restored to their former beauty, even serving the same type of meals that shaped their popularity in the first place.

The Fernridge Garage was part of a lone commercial area a few miles south of Langley, British Columbia. The business started as a rural Post Office in the early 1920's and shortly after, added a small grocery store. It is not clear when the garage was added, but at one time the tiny structure housed a tire store as well.

Whether it was a sign of economic times, or development favoring another part of town, one by one, operations ceased. At the time of researching the project the structures were still standing, but in need of repair.

garden scale 1:24 vintage gas station plans

Plan 1598g - Gas Station

PDF Plan Package: $9.95

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 2' 2 1/2" x 1' 5 1/2" (approx.)

The Golden Age of Automobiles is sometimes considered to include the 1920's, when assembly lines made automobiles more affordable to the masses, to the 1950's, where style, power, and prestige were paramount. Production of passenger cars slowed down during World War II, but came back with a vengeance in the late 1940's and 1950's. Part of the American Dream was to have a new car in the driveway of your new home.

To keep all these vehicles running service stations like this one sprang up across the continent. In addition to two grades of gasoline and a variety of parts and auto supplies, you could often count on a mechanic being available to handle any repair job that came up.

garden scale model sawmill plans

Plan 1924g - Arrow Creek Sawmill

PDF Plan Package: $9.95

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 2' 9" x 2' 8" (approx.)

The "Pacific Northwest", which included British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon, was home to some of the largest Douglas Fir, cedar, hemlock, and other species of softwood in the world. What was originally an encumbrance to the settlers arriving from Europe wanting to farm the areas soon became one of their most valuable commodities. In some cases, trees were actually burned in order to prepare the land for farming, but once farming was established, logging and lumber mills began to appear.

The Arrow Creek sawmill, one of many small steam powered sawmills, used a converted "donkey" engine from a logging camp. The mill was later converted to electricity.
