Description

Kit #183 includes three (3) telephone booths that uniquely feature the walls and roof cut from one piece of our Resin-ply material, which fold up to make the basic structure.According to John Signor, editor of the Warbonnet, the Official Magazine of the Santa Fe Railway Historical & Modeling Society, "Common on Santa Fe lines throughout the system, in an age before radio communications, these little six-sided wooden phone booths were placed near telegraph lines at points where train crews might need to contact the dispatcher - typically ends of sidings, junctions, or points where spurs or drill tracks entered the main line." Furthermore, similar looking prototypes to our latest lineside structure kit once populated the right of ways of many other US railroads as well.

Wall battens, trim, window, and door use our Peel and Stick technology and are applied over the assembled shell. We've designed the layout of the parts sheets so the components can all be pre-painted by the modeler.
