Plan 730g - Matawan Freight Shed

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 23" x 8" (approx.)

Back in 1876 you could get a one way ticket on the New York and Long Branch Railroad from Matawan, New Jersey to New York City for under a dollar.

The Matawan depot was one of five identical stations using the same mid-Victorian design. The freight shed shared the same ‘half-hip’ roof style, and is similar in design to many such railway buildings across North America.

Plan 576g - Two-car Garage

PDF Plan package: Free Download (for a limited time)

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 11 11/32" x 12 29/32" (approx.)

This garage would look right at home with almost any era of twentieth or twenty-first century house.

To show our appreciation to the many customers over the past seven years, from over forty countries around the world, and to welcome and encourage newcomers, we offer this complete plan package as a free download. (HO Scale version shown)

PDF Plan Package: $7.95

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 17" x 8" (approx.)

The Grand Trunk Pacific Railway was formed in 1903 as a subsidiary of the Grand Trunk Railway. The GTP mainline ran from Winnipeg, Manitoba, to the port of Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Financial difficulties led the GTP and the GTR to merge with the Canadian Northern to become part of the Canadian National Railway.

Bunk houses such as these provided sleeping accommodations for railway work crews along the routes. Several railroad lines on both sides of the border used similar designs, which were sometimes modified to be used as portable stations. (HO Scale cardstock version shown)

Plan 1390g - CNR/CP Water Tower

PDF Plan Package: $8.95

Scale: G, (Garden Scale)

Building footprint: 16" x 16" (approx.)

In the days of steam locomotives travel distances were limited by the available on board storage of fuel and water. Tenders attached to the locomotives were designed to increase this capacity, allowing a train to travel greater distances, but regular stops were still necessary. Water towers were regular sights along rail lines. This example is modeled after a 40000 gal. tower common to CNR, CPR, and many other railroads across Canada and the U.S.
