The inspiration for our latest laser-cut kit comes from the former McCready's Limited of Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada. Established in 1883, the company originally packaged pickle products along with the production of vinegar. The small firm later diversified its line with a number of bottled table sauces and fruit syrups sold at grocers across Canada. Although no longer standing, the original wood frame structure with its outdoor vats continued to employ area residents into the 1960s. Used in conjunction with our G.R. Dill & Sons Salting Station Kit No. 725, the modeler can recreate a point-to-point industry for which their model railroad can serve. Similar pickle manufacturing operations could be found throughout the United States from the late 1800s through the early 1970s.

Features everything the discriminating craftsman has come to expect from a Laserkit including Peel and Stick windows, door, trim, and roofing material; custom scribed platform and dock decking; Tab and Slot wall and platform substructure assembly; laser-cut ladders and wheelbarrows; white metal smokejacks and elevator drive chain assembly; cast resin casks, crates, sacks, and even cucumber loads for the wheelbarrows; optional open vat with simulated brine, well-illustrated instructions, sections of our wood privacy fence, and full color signage. As shown, the McCreadys operation measures 8.5" long x 5.25" wide by 6.5" high including side docks with the end ramp adding another 2" to the length while the separate vat platform measures 3" long x 3" wide x 1" high.
