Model Railroad Plans:

Thinking of building a Kit? Why not take it one step further. Pre-made kits and model structures are popular and available for various scales, and can significantly add to the realism of a Model Railroad layout. But you may want something more unique, or something a little more affordable. That's where comes into the picture. Often with just a few more steps than preparing and assembling a kit, you can create your own structures from scratch for far less money.

All Structure images on this site are photos of actual scale models.

Each of these plans can be constructed with your choice of balsa, basswood, styrene, photo paper, card stock, or any of the many available varieties of modeling materials. All plans are available in N, HO, OO, and O scales without any necessary converting, and most can be print-reduced if you model in Z, S, and TT scales. Several are available in 1:24 Garden Scale. Modeling materials are available at local craft and hobby stores or visit our Links page for information on online suppliers.

Several of our Plan & Templates Packages include a FREE printable Cardstock model of the structure.  See catalog page for details.

* Pre-colored printable cardstock patterns are included as a free bonus and are not factored in to the cost of the plans. Click here for details. Colors may differ from models shown.  Contact us for color information on individual plans.
