The classic sand house could be seen in every engine service area on the railroad and are a great complement to a roundhouse, coaling tower, diesel shed or back shop.
Every railroad had its own ideas about sand house construction, so most were built to meet local conditions and seldom followed standard plans. Since diesels also needed sand, these structures remained in service years after the last steamer had been retired. This model fits any busy terminal and includes a unique drying house, a large open storage bin, a tower and piping.
This Sand House is part of our line of engine service facility structure kits and is the perfect complement to the 304 Roundhouse, and works nicely with the 306 Diesel Shed. Features the drying house, newly design laser cut “steel” sanding tower and new laser cut detailed wood storage bin, and realistic piping. The Sanding tower can be assembled either next to the drying house ore located remotely near the tracks as was also common.
