A super-realistic molded brick structure to enhance any scene!

Just about every railroad in this country had a structure of this sort
someplace on their property in which to store flammables, like "Valve Oil" and
"Headlight Oil" and their "cotton waste" oily rags and such. That stuff was
just that FLAMMABLE, and if they didn't want the rest of their operations to
go up in smoke, they did well to isolate the sort of thing that hot cinders
And so, to our way of thinking, this particular structure, with it's iron shutters replete with rivets and hinges, was just too cool to pass up. So when Mary Ann and I had the chance to spend a really fun week in Chama 'late September of 2001, ( After the National Narrow Gauge Convention.), we set out to do some drawings of the structures in Chama's yards, including a set of the Lube House while we were at it. Of course, one thing led to another, so nothing would do but to draw the thing in its entirety brick-for-brick / rivet-for-rivet / bolt-for-bolt, right? And so we ended up with a set of CAD drawings of the Lube House like no others! You wouldn't expect less of us, now would you?
( If you click here, or on the picture below you can have a look at the trouble we went through to make certain this model would turn out "just so". . . )
The result is the model you see in these photos. All made in hard tooling!
So herewith we present our Chama Lube House kit, modeled Door for Door; Window
for Window; Brick for Brick; Bolt for Bolt, Rivet for Rivet, and even "Sign"
for Sign! All created directly from the CAD drawings and photographs we made up
on site! Which is why the photo above could pass for the real thing if it
weren't for all the coal soot and dust on the prototype! Simply stated, this
here's the kind of model we here at P-B-L are noted ( Notorious? ) for!
Or heck, give us a call at 707-462-7680 ! We'd love to hear from ya!
Otherwise, you can order yours from our Online Catalog!
Either way, you know we 'preciate your support!
