Share with a friend:


The inspiration for our latest laser-cut creation comes from Paul Larson's "Pickle Works" article in the January 1955 issue of Model Railroader and David Leider's "Building a Pickle Salting Station" article in the March 2009 issue of Railroad Model Craftsman along with numerous prototype photos and personal recollections of individuals who labored at these salting stations.

Kit conveys the early appearance of these salting stations with its 100% laser-cut real wood construction right down to the 20 brine vats, which display individual wood planks and banding. Made from quality birch plywood and basswood, the modeler will easily be able to obtain that stained weathered look of the prototype facilities. Furthermore, the modular design of the kit, which includes the open platform with vats and freight car loading point, elevated shed with covered deck, and the annex platform with roof, affords the modeler relative ease in placement of the structures on their layout even on curved sidings.Kit No. 725 features everything the discriminating craftsman has come to expect from a LASERKIT including Peel & Stick windows, door, trim, and roofing material, custom scribed platform decking, Tab & Slot wall and platform substructure assembly, laser-cut ladders and wheelbarrows, cast resin casks and cucumber loads for the wheelbarrows, a white metal scale, optional open vats with simulated brine, well-illustrated instructions, and full color signage that includes a unique dill pickle shaped rooftop billboard. As shown, the G. R. Dill & Sons Salting Station measures 16" long x 3.75" wide by 3" high with the covered annex stretching 6.75" long, the elevated shed 2.75" long and the open platform 6.5" long.
