ing from the very small to the massive. Even in today’s world, lineside build- ings are needed, though they are less likely to be traditional structures like the one reviewed here. They are partici- pants in the daily operations of the rail- roads. Key among these are the mainte- nance-of-way buildings that punctuate the mainlines at regular intervals. In model form these small, nondescript structures add an air of realism to our model railroads. Replicating a cluttered prototype with its on hand supplies and piles of junk can be among the ultimate challenges for any modeler. Motrak’s HO scale m.o.w. shed pro-


vides an easy to assemble kit complete with many of the basic details to con- struct a representative model of these common structures. This well propor- tioned, freelanced model has been based on several common prototype buildings. The shed should be at home on any model railroad set from the 1940’s until the present era. Its 5-¹/₄″ long by 2¹/₂″ wide foot print allows it to be easily at home on even the smallest pikes. The kit is comprised of laser-cut


wood and cardstock walls, base and roof sections, as well as various sized


stripwood pieces to be used to brace and detail the model. The roof is fin- ished with strips of textured “three tab” self-adhesive shingles. Windows and doors consist of several injection molded plastic sprues of parts. Their addition greatly simplifies the model’s construction, making the shed a great first time project for those not familiar with this type of multimedia kit. Additional items have been included


to add detail to the shed’s exterior. Plastic 55-gallon drums in addition to a hand and push car kit round out this package. Templates are provided for the assembly of pallets using the thin stripwood provided, and the end re- sults are amazing. The kit includes everything needed for its assembly with the exception of paint and glue. Motrak’s kit goes beyond being a


simple structure. The inclusion of addi- tional details for the exterior will allow the builder to construct a nicely de- tailed mini scene. The m.o.w. shed should prove to have other uses; it can easily be used as a yard office, small depot or crew quarters, as well as its originally designated use. The price for the kit is $38.00.—GEORGE RILEY
