Elevated Crossing Shanty
Before the invention of automatic gate control at grade crossing, the heavy use crossings had a flagman on duty to lower the gates to protect lives. Some crossing shanties were elevated to give the flagman a better view. This crossing shanty is based upon one from the D&H that was still in use in the early 1960s.
This kit consists of laser-cut basswood, plywood, and cardstock, with white metal & plastic detail castings. The tabbed construction and peel-and-stick window sashes ease assembly. The footprint, over the roof eaves, is approximately 9’ x 9’.
