The Roundhouse was a hallmark of steam-era railroading, and some of these classics are still used today. No matter the weather, workers could easily inspect and service locos under cover. Size was based on the number of engines coming and going in any 24-hour period, with the busiest terminals requiring full-circle roundhouses. Our authentic North American-style model includes three stalls on 10-degree centers to make the most of your available space like the prototype. And with a modular design, you can add as many stalls as your railroad requires using the Modern Roundhouse Add-On Stalls (933-3261, sold separately). For more realism, interior and exterior brick wall details, fine windows, floor inspection pits and much more are all standard. To make adding realistic trim to your roundhouse, wall cap tiles and pilaster caps are molded in a realistic contrasting color.
Though engines started getting bigger early in the 20th century, no one could foresee the monsters that were in regular service by the 1940s. These locos required equally large servicing areas, so some roads simply added and extended a few roundhouse stalls to handle them. This conversion kit adds three matching stalls to the Modern Roundhouse (933-2900, sold separately). With additional kits, you can expand the basic building to any size your railroad requires. Engines up to 125' fit easily inside, and parts to build a single 145' long stall are included - big enough to hold a Big Boy.
Kits require assembly.
All of the prototype details are there, including the traditional two-level roof, with separate clerestory windows and smokejacks, plus 23 large windows for natural lighting. It holds engines up to 13" long, typical of the power found on most lines. Stalls are spaced on 10-degree angle, requiring less approach trackage. With its modular design, the basic 3-stall kit can be enlarged up to a full circle to meet the needs of your railroads. To finish the scene, install the 90' Motorized Turntable to serve your new Roundhouse.
