Scrap yards, the steel industry and economic markets are closely linked. The demand, and the price paid for scrap governs how long a yard will store or how quickly it sells its scrap. If demand or prices are low for any product, volumes for that product build up and the piles get high. When demand and prices rise, stored volumes are sold off quickly to generate a profit. Washington Salvage Scrap Yard is actually two businesses - an auto salvage business and a scrap business.

Washington Salvage Scrap Yard includes plastic kits and ready-to-use cast resin details. The plastic kits are easy to assemble and come with complete instructions. Cast resin details are one-piece hand-painted castings with no assembly needed.

Oversized structural objects like pipe, H columns, C channel and I beams are fed into the shear where they are confined and cut into smaller, more manageable pieces.

Perfect for Steam- And Diesel-Era Railroads

Whether a small stream or a busy highway, railroads have long relied on bridges to carry the right-of-way safely across natural and man-made obstacles. One of the most common railroad bridge designs is the through plate girder. Used for many decades, this design is constructed of several steel sections riveted together to form girders. They're known as through types as the track passes between, rather than on top of the spans. Bridges of this type are typically used to cross short distances of about 30 to 100' 9.1 to 30.4m.

This model is typical of railroad bridges found all over North America from the steam era to the present day. The kit can be built either as a single- or a double-track bridge. Each includes parts for two complete spans, but the design makes it easy to combine additional kits (sold separately) to build a longer or wider bridge if needed. The plastic parts are molded in color and feature authentic rivets and other fine details. Easily installed in new or existing layouts, the kit includes complete instructions.

Not too long ago, stations like Al's could be found at every busy city intersection and along most major highways. Premium was 25 cents a gallon, maps were free, restrooms were clean. There was a mechanic on duty who could fix anything. And Al always wore a spotless uniform when he came out to pump your gas, check the oil and wash the windows.

Introduced in the late 1930s, box style stations like this sprang up from coast to coast and remained a standard well into the 1950s. Combining the office, restrooms and service bays into one structure, they provided a uniform, neat appearance that attracted motorists. Lots of windows made them bright and cheerful, as did the enameled steel walls decorated in company colors. Although newer stations have taken their place, many survive today as independent garages, body shops, retail stores and offices. A few have even been converted into private homes!

Authentic styling looks great on any vintage or modern street scene. Optional pumps are included to match your era, along with colorful decal signs for the finishing touch. Just add vehicles, figures and interior details, available separately, to create a busy scene anywhere along your layout. Finished Model Measures: 4 x 6 x 2-1/16 10 x 15 x 5.8cm

The depot was a magical place. At train time, everything stopped as local folks went down to watch the varnish come in. The old depot may be gone, but the magic is still there! Today, shiny Amtrak streamliners glide by, and in many areas, daily commuter trains make up much of the trackside action. These modern trains require modern facilities and bringing your layout up-to-date is easy with this kit. It's based on a design first used in the late 1970s, which was adapted for use in several Amtrak-served communities. This detailed model captures the clean lines of the original in a size that's right for the contemporary layout. Full-color Amtrak station signs add the finishing touch.

Next time you're in the grocery store, look at the incredible variety of fresh and frozen foods available. Almost all were grown and processed in another area, then shipped to your hometown by rail and truck. Along they way, they spent some of their journey in a cold storage plant like R.J. Frost Ice & Storage. These buildings are commonly found in agricultural areas where foods are readied for shipment, and in large cities where the food is stored for pickup by local customers.

In towns large or small, the bank remains one of the most important (and the most common) buildings. Until now, adding one to your layout meant long hours with a difficult kit, or weeks of scratchbuilding.

Bailey Savings & Loan features authentic Beaux Arts (Fine Arts) styling which used ornamental columns, arches and cut stone to project an image of power and strength. (Many libraries and city halls were constructed in this style as well.) Ideal for any business district from the 1900s to the present day, buildings like this were common downtown and in the suburbs.

This kit features highly detailed plastic walls which looks just like cut stone and the front includes columns. Bank and library decals are included.
