    Default Scratch built N Scale interlocking tower

    Just like my obsession with the freight station that started me down the path of modeling the Pacific Electric in N Scale, the Pacific Electric interlocking towers got stuck in my mind.


    Unfortunately, there isnít a kit in N Scale that matches the prototype.

    Fortunately, there are plans for a basic interlocking tower, just move some windows and doors around..

    I built this using Evergreen 0.020″ V Grove siding with 0.040″ spacing, Grandt line windows and doors, Plastastruct stairs and handrails, and finally the roof of a Micro Trains box factory. I will also add in the 90*crossing....

    Great job , well built , but please tell me you're going to weather it with chalks or dull coat it.

    I second that emotion. The gloss paint detracts from the otherwise cool build.
