600 The Dubois House
With their gingerbread trim and ornate decoration the Queen Anne style is what most people imagine when they think of a Victorian house. Houses of this style were built throughout the country between 1880 and WWI. They could be found in towns and cities of all sizes. Many remain today, some lovingly restored to their former glory.

The prototype for our kit is located in Livingston Manor, NY. It was built in 1884 for A.P. Dubois, a successful merchant in town. In fact, the Dubois family seemed to own a good chunk of the town between the general mercantile store and a retail coal and oil dealership. They even had a street named after them. Their house was located adjacent to the railroad tracks and across the street from the family store. The house remained the family home for many years. It still stands today, beautifully restored, a survivor from an earlier era.

President Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home
The boyhood home of President Ronald Reagan was a modest family rented home.  The Reagan family moved into the home on December 6, 1920 at 816 South Hennepin in Dixon, IL.  Ron and his brother Neil shared a small room in the house where they lived for three years.

The Branchline LaserArt kit #603 of the Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home is an exact model as the home was in 1920 with the exquisite detail that represents every Branchline LaserArt Kit.

Features include easy to follow instructions along with easy to apply plastics roof strip shingles, plastic strip foundation, and resin detail parts chimney and cellar hatch.  This house will fit in any neighborhood of the 1920s to the present day.

Welcome to the wrong side of the tracks....
In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s many mining and railroad companies built company towns using groups of standard plan houses. This provided local, convenient, affordable housing for their employees. Many of these homes can still be seen in ex-company towns throughout the country.

Now here is a colorful home to add to your neighborhood. Yet another catalog home with a little extra zing. The Woodward features some wonderful arched trim around it's roomy porch as well as on the front dormer. This home was actually owned by an eccentric gentleman in Ann Arbor Michigan, who was known to his neighbors as Professor Metzenburger. The Professor earned his name, not by his many years of schooling, because as a matter of fact, he never finished high school. He however was always known to have an answer for everything, no matter who, what, where, or when. Folks finally got to the point where they just assumed he must be a professor, because he knew it all!.

652 Deluxe Farmhouse
There is an interesting story behind these two Farmhouses. They were owned by a couple of brothers, separated at birth. William grew up and worked hard, farming since he was a child. He always had food on the table and a roof over his families head. He was not a financially wealthy man, and his simple farmhouse reflected this. He was however rich in the pride he had for his family and their simple home (#653). Malcolm, on the other hand, was a Boston Attorney who longed for the simple life and decided to become a Gentleman Farmer. He built a more extravagant home with a touch of Victorian flair that was all the rage back then (#652). When the folks at Branchline heard the story of the brothers, they knew they HAD to build these two very different versions of the American farmhouse. Both owned by 2 brothers who enjoyed their homes and their wealth, just in different ways. We can almost see them sitting in their favorite rocker on their front porches.

659 Canaan, CT Union Station (22' x 20" x7")
The Canaan, Connecticut Union Station was built in 1872 at the junction of the Central New England and Housatonic railroads (both later parts of the New Haven). A major architectural landmark, this station stood intact and essentially as built until 2001 when an arson fire destroyed a major portion of the station, including its distinctive tower. The damage was severe enough that most observers considered the remaining portion of the station to be doomed.

A grass roots local effort along with state and private funding has meant that, like a phoenix, a restored Canaan station is returning from the ashes.

Better known as the oldest operating Union Station in the United States, the historic Victorian era Union Depot of Canaan, Ct. continues to be known as the heart of the town. This grand, wooden structure was born in the heyday of the development of railroads in New England.

On the second floor, is a large room that functioned as the station restaurant. It had a twenty foot long semicircular counter in place. The Canaan depot lunch room satisfied many a hungry rail patron.

Given its classic design, the historic nature of the building and the heroic efforts being expended to rebuild it, we decided that it deserved to be honored in an HO Laser-Art kit. Graceful rounded arch windows were used throughout, and neat wooden brackets supported the roof and track side canopies.

This kit provides an accurate* period model (circa 1940) of Canaan station based on plans provided by the restoration firm along with copies of the original plans along with information provided by the New Haven Railroad Historical and Technical Association. Kit will include wood, resin and photo-etched parts, Grandt Line baggage carts, appropriate signs and posters and much more...

*The plan has been modified slightly to accommodate available 90 degree diamond crossing (the original is at about an 85 degree angle) but can be modified for those that want to portray it accurately.

The building featured exterior walls of board and batten siding and two long wings are at right angles to each other at the diamond. A distinctive three story tower (topped by a locomotive weathervane) allowed railroad telegraph operators a clear view down the right of way.

680 The Creamery
Prior to the building of the interstate highway system in the 1950’s the railroads hauled nearly all of the milk that was consumed in the larger cities. Local farmers would deliver cans of Bessie’s best to the local creamery where it would be inspected, stored, chilled. The cans would be cleaned and returned to the farmer. The milk would be shipped to the city in railroad-hauled milk cars.

The prototypes for our kit was built at Clark’s, near Campbell Hall, NY on the New York, Ontario & Western. Similar designs could be found throughout the Northeast. The O&W was unique in that in built many of its own creameries. As a result they were most likely painted in the railroad’s colors - a cream/buff wall color with green trim and red window sashes. Other typical creamery colors are gray with white trim and all white

Although dairy cows tended to end their careers in processed meat rather than on the grill like western beef, slaughter houses and packing houses are scattered around dairy producing areas as well.

The term “packing” refers to the older practice of packing cuts of meat in salt to preserve it. With the development of the refrigerator car and the whole concept of refrigeration in general, most meat was preserved by keeping it cold. The industry spread country-wide, with cattle being raised in the mid-west, driven to the great stockyards of Chicago, St. Louis, or other rail centers. There the cows were slaughtered and the meat brought east. Thus there were slaughter houses where the initial processing took place, and smaller plants where the carcasses were cut into smaller pieces for retail sale.

A major spotting feature for any meat plant would be the trackside platform with a roof and a heavy rail suspended under the roof, a so-called “beef rail”.

Our meat packing plant is based on a prototype built by Swift in Burlington, VT and modeled on the New England, Berkshire & Western railroad of the Rensselaer Model Railroad Society. Similar buildings could be seen throughout the Northeast and in other areas of the country, and the design was not unique to Swift with similar designs being used by Armour and others. The building is a classic Greek Revival type with half returns on the front. The garage annex is most likely an addition to the original building, built when trucks became more common. Such a plant would get in whole carcasses in meat reefers specific to the brand. Butchers in the plant would cut up the carcasses for retail trade, and from here the finished product would be shipped out by truck to retail locations.

684 County Feed Mill
Typical small trackside industrial building that while we call it a feed store, could be used for any number of different applications. It is rumored that in the late 1930's and early 40's, the prototype for this building was used as a backdrop for a number of scenes in at least three or four major Hollywood motion pictures. However since all the footage shot there ended up on the cutting room floor, no proof of this actually exists today. Our kit comes complete with printed signs for County Feed.

685 Caldwell Tool & Die Company
Another typical trackside industry, this patterned after a shop owned by an eccentric machinist with a real interest in unique motorcars and the habit of spending hours talking your ear off about them. In order to model a true representation of the actual prototype, there should probably be a couple of British roadsters in pieces around the yard. Figures and vehicles not included but highly encouraged.

687 Gas Station (Includes 1930s & 1950s Pumps + Appropriate Signs)
For many years the local service station was a fixture in towns throughout the country. Pump attendants would pump your gas, check your oil, wash your windshield and trade stories. The local mechanic would do all sorts of maintenance and repairs based on years of knowledge and without the use of a computer diagnostic system. As cars have become more complicated and time more precious this type of full service station is fast disappearing, replaced by self-service convenience stores and specialized repair shops. The canopy style station we represent was a common design used by many companies.

The old boy just wasn’t right after that….
