    A nice sized industry for railroad served siding.
    Lots of potential. But not at that price point for me as of now.
    Inspires the idea to take several various kits to try and combine to create a similar sized industry.

    Jan - do some research on Yankee Hill Brick in Lincoln, NE. Kansas is only about 90 miles from Lincoln.

    Wow, it sure is! It is a nice looking structure to be sure! Not sure if the value is there or not though. I guess it all depends on what you are trying to model. It's not THAT big of a kit, but yes you could model a layout around it if it were a small layout and you were trying to avoid a spaghetti bowl. Just seems expensive for a kit, but I guess all laser cut stuff is.

    That is a fairly normal price for such a large kit , but I am used to higher prices because I have quite a few H0 kits from FSM and South River Model Works.

    That is definitely a center piece kit, so $250 doesn't make me fall out of the chair. In comparison, we drop $250 on a sound loco without really thinking about it is expensive. I say this tongue in cheek of course....
