The Quincy Station was designed from prototype drawings and an article in Model Railroader Magazine (April 1963) by Don Sims. The Enginehouse is one of several structures from the article written about a short line which was laid in 1910 near the back-country town of Quincy, California in Plumas County. The railroad was still in use at the time of the magazine printing and we feel all the various structures of the Quincy Railroad yard deserve to be reproduced in HO scale because of their functional adaptability. Our many thanks go to Mr. Len Thayer, General Superintendent of the Quincy Railroad Company and his crew who were very helpful and instrumental in obtaining dimensions and information pertaining to the building and structures of the Quincy yard.
This kit includes two support building, an inspection Speeder Shed and Ice house, which could be used in other locations for tools or small maintenance items. A wide selection of railroad and highway signs and their mounting posts are also included.
A small frame building of wood, roofed with corrugated sheet is home for the company's inspection speeder. Located just across the road and behind the Enginehouse, there is ample space for the speeder and plenty of room for the inspection and other equipment.
The Ice house is quite small, of frame construction and is used for the storage of ice to refrigerate the few items shipped and needing this handling, as well as packing vacationing fishermen catches and camper's perishables both solid and liquid. Signs include crossing, close clearance, speed limit, yard limit and whistle posts for the railroad, speed limit stop and caution signs for the highways. Ties for tie piles and planks for rail crossings help take care of many necessary super details.
