Product Information

Common on Santa Fe lines throughout the system, in an age before radio communications, these little six-sided wooden phone booths were placed near telegraph lines at points where train crews might need to contact the dispatcher - typically ends of sidings, junctions, or points where spurs or drill tracks entered the main line. Similar looking prototypes once populated the right of ways of many other US railroads as well.
 
Kit #183 includes three (3) telephone booths that feature walls and roof cut from one piece of American Model Builder's Resin-ply material, which fold up to make the basic structure. Wall battens, trim, window, and door are Peel & Stick parts applied over the assembled shell. The parts are laid-out so the components can all be pre-painted by the modeler and, once dry, a phone booth can be constructed in only a matter of minutes!
