#522 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 and bathroom
#525 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. $99.98
#538 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 layout.

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!

#552 Deluxe Farm House This is the more elaborate of two farm houses. They were owned by a couple of brothers, 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 S)
#562 Flag Stop Station This classic small station was located in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania on the Reading Railroad. Similar structures were built for the PRR.

Kit includes appropriate signs and coal bin..

#580 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.

The prototypes 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.


#581 Ice House Most creameries were built before mechanical refrigeration. As a result many were built with an adjacent icehouse. 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.
