HO version production model and photo by Matt Woods painted in B&O Colors
These high quality kits Produced by Portland Locomotive Works are modeled after the Jaite Station and Freight House which were built along a branch of the B&O in the early part of the 20th century in northeast Ohio. They served the small company town of Jaite Mill and the Jaite Paper Mill which was founded in 1905. At its peak the mill employed 250 people. The mill, eventually abandoned, was destroyed by fire in 1992. The small station and freight house are in good repair and still stand along tracks now used by the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
The kit has two buildings laser cut to high quality standards to faithfully reproduce the two prototype buildings - the passenger station and separate freight house. The two building kit is $44.00 each plus S&H. (not sold individually) Other scales will be available as demand dictates.
Two never before issued numbers of this regional northeast Ohio box car that traveled the nation moving goods into and out of Ohio as well as around the state.
The ACY had 165 miles of trackage running East-West in northeast Ohio. The prototype cars were part of a 165 car order delivered in November 1964. Built by Pulman Standard, these 50'6" cars have yellow sides and black roof and ends. They were equipped with 15' PS1 combination doors.
These N scale cars have been produced in two numbers, 1700 and 1767, by Micro-Trains with their 50' boxcar with combination door bodies. Fully assembled and ready to run, cost is $77.00 for the two pack or $39.00 for the individual car, plus S&H. (Sorry, other scales not available)
Both the station and box cars are made in the USA.
Available are the HO scale Jaite Station ($44.00 + $9.00 S&H), and the N scale ACY Boxcars (2 cars for $77.00 + $8.00 S&H and 1 car for $39.00 + 5.00 S&H).
Paypal will be available in the future.
