from Jersey Shore, PA United States
This booth is a two-piece polyurethane casting that represents the Buffalo Rochester & Pittsburgh Railway prototype as it was casted at their East Salamanca, NY concrete plant in the 1910s-1920s. It has a pentagon-shaped footprint, and the roof casting is separate. These booths still exist today in surprising numbers along the former BR&P. The booth model is fairly well done with crisp lines, although the footprint is not a perfect pentagon, as two sides extend a little farther out. However, it is only noticeable when viewed straight down. The door detail is a little oversized and clunky, but careful work with an sharp hobby knife and needle file can remove enough material to make the detail a little less intrusive. A small milling bit can also be used in a Dremel tool to remove the door and hollow out the interior to represent a more modern version where the doors have been ripped/rotted off.
