Description
Walthers HO-Scale MCRR (NYC) Freight Station

Model built and photo by Tom Stage

The prototype for this model was the NYC station at Caledonia, MI. Its board-and-batten walls broad overhanging eaves and tall windows are typical of many small town NYC freight stations.  Expert modelers might try kit-bashing two station kits into one larger (longer model).  In Caledonia's case, freight and storage facilities occupy the rear portion of the building, while the front half is divided into two smaller rooms.  One of these serves as the agent and telegrapher's office and the other as a warehouse.   Built in 1868 by the long defunct Grand Valley Railroad, the Caledonia station still serves as a warehouse for a roofing materials supplier.
This kit has been available from Alexander Scale Models since the 1960's.  Tomar Industries now sells the Alexander Line and has somewhat updated the kit (laser cut wood, some newer castings).  When he originally sold this model, Edwin Alexander  marketed it as a "Michigan Central" standard design.  However, this store's director has seen photos of these "standard" freight stations in smaller towns all over the NYC  --  along the Big Four; in upstate New York and western Massachusetts.

Word of warning to the wise:  Given that Tomar's owners are trying to sell their business, the future of this kit is a bit uncertain.  Hence, if you've been looking at this kit in Walther's catalogs and said to yourself, "Maybe sometime in the future…", that future just may be now.
  
And a disclaimer:  Tom Stage did an excellent job on his kit.  He added boxes and bags to the the loading dock, interior details, and incandescent micro-lighting.  Those items do NOT come with the kit, but you might consider embellishing yours as Tom did.  More photos of Tom's work are available on the NYCSHS's modeler's blog at (2008) at https://nycshs.org/2008/06/23/caledonia-freight-house-in-ho-by-tom-stage/.
