Whitehall Catalog House The
Whitehall is based on a home shown in the 1927 Sears catalog. The
kit price of $1,863.00 included all lumber, millwork, trim, cupboards,
doors, windows, hardware, gutters and downspouts – even paint
and varnish. For an additional $112.00 buyers could add oak doors,
trim and floors for living and dining room, Maple floors in kitchen
Finley House The Finley house is based on a plan shown
in the 1917 Aladdin catalog. They advertised this home as being
popular with the owner of any sized lot, yet it finds special
favor in cities where lots are sometimes as narrow as 30, or
even 25 feet. The Finley can be built very nicely on a 25 foot
lot and still leave ample space for a walk on either side…..Those
wanting a sixroom, two story plain house are invariably pleased
with the Finley.
Row House These row houses were found in cities
throughout the country. Our models are based on houses in Troy,
NY as modeled on the RPI Club's New England, Berkshire & Western
The kit includes parts to build one complete building with
optional parts so that you can modify it to one of several
different versions. Build a whole neighborhood!
Deluxe Farm House This is the more elaborate of two
by a couple
separated at birth. William grew up and worked hard, farming
since he was a child. He always had food on the table and a roof
over his families head. He was not a financially wealthy man,
and his simple farmhouse reflected this. He was however rich
in the pride he had for his family and their simple home. Malcolm,
on the other hand, was a Boston Attorney who longed for the simple
life and decided to become a Gentleman Farmer. He built a more
extravagant home with a touch of Victorian flair that was all
the rage back then. When the folks at Branchline heard the story
of the brothers, they knew they HAD to build these two very different
versions of the American farmhouse. Both owned by 2 brothers
who enjoyed their homes and their wealth, just in different ways.
We can almost see them sitting in their favorite rocker on their
front porches. (The other farm house is not yet available in
Flag Stop Station This classic small station was located
in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania on the Reading Railroad. Similar
were built for the PRR.
Kit includes appropriate signs and coal bin..
Creamery Prior to the building of the interstate highway
system in the 1950’s the railroads hauled nearly all of
the milk that was consumed in the larger cities. Local farmers
would deliver cans of Bessie’s best to the local creamery
where it would be inspected, stored, chilled. The cans would
be cleaned and returned to the farmer. The milk would be shipped
to the city in railroad-hauled milk cars.
for our kit was built at Clark’s, near Campbell
Hall, NY on the New York, Ontario & Western. Similar designs
could be found throughout the Northeast.
Ice House Most creameries were built before
mechanical refrigeration. As a result many were built with an
Icehouses were also used alone along the line for storage of
ice for reefers and milk cars. Our icehouse is also based on
a NYO&W design to match the creamery.
