McCabe Sand House

Sand is needed for locomotive traction, and it must be dry to freely flow from the locomotive sand boxes to the rails. Sand was delivered to McCabe in a gondola and manually shoveled into the bin. Sand was dried in the sand house and blown via compressed air into the tower.

The drying house and sand bin has a footprint of a scale 17' x 37' with the tower designed to sit between two servicing tracks. Sand for the bin, as well as junk and clutter detail castings are included. This kit consists of accurate laser-cut wood & cardstock components with brass & white metal details.
