I was over at a friend's layout the other night and he had these on his layout:

He told me they were a kit but couldn't remember whose they were.
Anyone know?

We could probably use a little more info about them. Plastic, wood, metal? HO or something else?

The V & T lives in my garage. Soon...

Not sure which mfg made these but I think they are from two different companies. Try searching for "Boxcar Shed" Banta Modelworks, B.T.S., American Model Builders, JV Models, etc. all make versions.

I was thinking... because these are so easily created I suggest that you try your hand a semi-scratch build. The basis of the shed is an old boxcar. You can start with a old 36' Fowler. Doesn't matter if it's plastic, resin or wood. Might make a good modeler's challenge.

Hi Glen, I would think they are the older Silver Streak HO Kits, or the Ye Olde Huff N Puff types. They look like they would be so, but I don't know if they ever did Canadian Pacific roads, or he put those decals on himself. Just a thought for you to research.

Glen:

Might be Scotia Scale? Rich has a point, you certainly have the skill-set to scratch one up in short order.

Thanks Everyone.
Rich, it looks like you were right with American Model Builders. It's their Boxcar Depot set.
I am pretty sure that they would be easily duplicated using other boxcar kits that I have in my salvage pile and a few details
