LASERKITS®are quick, easy and fun to build for any modeler. The novice will be thrilled with the ease of construction, the easy-to-follow instructions, and professional look of the completed model. The experienced modeler can modify and super-detail each kit into a one-of-a-kind creation. LASERKITS are designed with a Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) program, then laser-machined and engraved from high-quality wood (and occasionally styrene) with incredible precision. The resulting edges require little, if any, sanding, and yield exact-fitting parts with accurate details. Siding and roof pieces are tabbed and slotted for error-free assembly. All windows, doors, roofing materials, shingles, and trim boards are laser-cut, and include a self-adhesive backing, which has been thoroughly tested and found to hold under the most adverse conditions. All kits are made in the USA.
Based on information supplied by the L&N Railroad Historical Society, these standard tool houses were used for storing handcars, tools, and supplies required for the construction and maintenance of the track and roadbed on the railroad. To a lesser extent, they could also provide short-term shelter for track crews during inclement weather, or be used as the section foreman's workshop. Generally, these small structures were located along the mainline, at sidings, and in yards at intervals of 3 to 10 miles apart. This set of two Tool Shed kits features 100% laser-cut parts with board and batten wall siding, rolled roofing, exposed rafter tails, positionable track side doors, interior flooring, hinge and hasp with lock details, and code 70 rail for the handcar setoff.
