A great trackside industry to add to your layout, this laser-cut wood kit captures the appearance of a typical salting station. Parts are provided for 20 brine vats, which display individual wood planks and banding. Made from quality birch plywood and basswood, all parts can easily be stained to capture the weathered look of prototype facilities. An open platform with vats and freight car loading point, elevated shed with covered deck, and the annex platform with roof are all included. This modular approach makes the finished model easy to install almost anywhere on a layout. Additional details include laser-cut ladders and wheelbarrows, cast resin casks and cucumber loads for the wheelbarrows, a white metal scale, optional open vats with simulated brine, well-illustrated instructions, and full color signs, includes a unique G. R. Dill & Sons pickle-shaped rooftop billboard.
The complete Salting Station measures 16 (40.6cm) long x 3-3/4 (9.5cm) wide by 3 (7.6cm) high; covered annex measures 6-3/4 (17.1cm) long, elevated shed 2-3/4 (6.9cm) long and the open platform 6-1/2" (16.5cm) long.
