I recently added a small addition to my layout and now I need to add a few new structures to it. The first will be Juneco's CNR 250 ton Ice house. This was actually one of the main reasons for the expansion as I've had this kit for about 10 years and really wanted to build it.







It's not a large kit, about 4 1/2X 3 1/4" so it's a nice model railroad size. Especially for a home layout.








The kit comes with milled walls, strip wood and a bag of castings. It is pretty obvious that it pre-dates any laser cut kits.

That looks like a classic old kit, Glen.

Hades must have froze over. Time to collect the ice.

I'll be following along. Since I plan on adding milk runs to the railroad I'll need an ice house. For now though I'll have to wait till Hades freezes a second time.

Glen, that looks like a very cool project.
I hope your hands will stay warm while building this.

Wow, you start a new project and the puns keep coming.
Thanks for following along everyone.
I Managed to get some decent headway on the project today.




I started on the two end walls. Both are milled to size with the roof peaks. However they are a bit short so you have to add the tips of the peaks and then trim accordingly. The one roofline is only milled partway but that's for the gabled roof on the trackside of the structure.




I finished off one end wall and almost the other with all the doors.



I managed to get all the doors in on the end wall. There's a man door and then three loading doors stacked above each other. the kit gives you white metal hinge castings for the doors. I sprayed them with primer and installed them will be the next step.

Glen:

What a classic kit from a good manufacturer! Years ago, I enjoyed building their CNR wooden caboose. It was a fun project. The one Juneco kit I would like to get my hands on, is the Cartierville Station. It was representative of typical CN Stations.

Looking forward to your build thread.

Michael

I was wondering what that funny little slit was. All is clear now.

Have you selected a paint color yet? I expect CNR had standard colors.

Michael, I've built almost every Juneco kit available, including the Cartierville station.

It's a challenging build, considerably more complicated than this one. But makes a very nice model in the end.

Mike, I'll be painting the structure in Boxcar red, the CNR colors as you suspected.

Just a quick update to prove I haven't abandoned the project.




I finished off the sidewall with all the doors and built the rear wall. The rear wall can be built with a door and platform so the structure can service two tracks but since I'm only using one track, the wall is blank.
I've started the front wall, I'll update that shortly.
