40th Anniversary Roadside Shanty
This is a pre-production rendering and subject to minor final production changes.
Add this unique shanty to
Shanties were small wooden structures or unused rail cars with trucks
removed, typically found along rail lines and yards across the United
States. Many of these structures served as storage sheds or shelters for
employees. Through the years their purpose has been modified to suit the
railroad’s changing needs and, though their appearance may have been
changed, many of these structures still exist today (often outliving the
railroad that built them initially). Unfortunately, these deserted shanties
are a good target for graffiti!
This special BTO Club Roadside Shanty, produced by USA Trains, is the
perfect addition to your G-scale layout and a unique and humorous way to
celebrate 40 years of Havin’ Fun Runnin’ Trains!
Shanty includes smoking chimney and lights, plus accessories.
