HO-Scale Michigan Central Tower Kit

(Expression of Interest)


We are looking into having this MCRR station produced in HO-scale by The N-Scale Architect who produced our NYC tower kit a couple of years ago.  It will be a wood laser cut kit. The kits would be un-assembled and would be painted by the modeler.

The kit will be based on the tower located at Porter, Indiana. Which is the crossing of the Michigan Central and Lake Shore mainlines 40 miles east of Chicago. Two other railroads came into the interlocking. Pere Marquette’s (C&O after 1947) line from Grand Rapids Michigan ended here but their trains continued on trackage rights on the Lake Shore into Chicago. Porter was also the eastern terminus of the Elgin Joliet & Eastern. The tower dates from 1880’s.

Other smaller wooden “Dutch hip” roof Michigan Central towers that the kit could be shortened to be modeled include “A Tower” Albion MI; Tower 1 and BO Tower, Kalamazoo MI; Hall St Tower, Battle Creek MI; 5th St Tower, Saginaw MI; 10th Street Tower, Michigan City IN and Fargo Ontario.

The following is from Russ at N-Scale architect “As with the NYCS/B&A Tower kit that we created a few years back, this tower kit (and the LS&MS station kit) would have enough material to make smaller versions. There were a couple excellent articles in the NYCentral Modeler that described how members made modifications to this kit to create location specific models."

We need to get 100 pre-orders to produce the kits.  If you would be interested

in purchasing one of these excellent model stations, please provide an

expression of interest by sending an email to [email protected]

We will only produce the kits if we get sufficient interest. 

When the kit goes into production you will be contacted and asked to place a

final order and pay for the kit plus shipping. 

Ohio residents will have 8% Ohio sales tax added at that time.

Our expected MSRP is $78.99 and NYCSHS Members' price $63.20, however

these are estimates
and may change when the kit is produced. 

Please DO NOT go through the

checkout process. 

If you are interested,

send an email to [email protected]

and indicate the number of kits you would be

interested in purchasing.
