NYC Freeight Station A-7622


Categories: ,


HO scale NYC Freight Station
The prototype for this model was the
New York Central station at Caledonia,
Michigan.Its board-and-batten walls, broad
overhanging eaves and tall windows are typical of
small town stations everywhere. Freight and
storage facilities occupy the rear portion of the
building, while the front half is divided into two
smaller rooms. One of these serves as the agent
and telegrapher’s office, and the other as a
warehouse.This second room has previously
housed various businesses and agencies,
among them Caledonia’s first store and the rural
post office.

Built in 1868 by the long defunct Grand Valley
Railroad, the Caledonia station has outlived the
era of the steam locomotive that gave it birth.

The footprint of this model is 8″ wide, 5 1/2″ deep, 3 1/4″ tall.
