The design was inspired by the turn of the twentieth century Gruber Wagon Works building and modified with Walter’s imagination into a Railroad Car and Carriage construction/repair facility. Our friend, Raul Perez decorated it up nicely and we dedicated this building to his skills. This is the third structure in our Industries of America series.
This kit features precision laser cut parts including peel-and-stick backed windows for easy assembly, precision pewter metal casting details (rooftop vents and cabinet), easy to assemble tab-and-slot construction, high-resolution graphics, and detailed step by step instructions with paint recommendations.

A word from Raul:
This is the new “R. Perez and Sons Car & Carriage Works” in N scale from Showcase Miniatures. I’m very proud that they chose to name this one in my honor. And, at 6 ½” wide, 4 ½” deep, and 3 ½” tall, it is the largest N scale kit that they’ve ever produced.
There are 6 rooftop vents and housings can be combined at the peak as show, or split, and placed anywhere on any of the upper-floor roofs. The front, side, and rear sliding doors can be posed open or shut. The LED lighting does not come in the kit, but is very easy to install. I built this one with the doors shut, and the upper windows tilted open for Showcase Miniatures to use on their website, the box art, and to take to the trade shows. Note that the roofing material is pristine in the kit. I tattered and weathered it to give the building a very aged look.
I highly recommend this kit if you’re looking to add this type of building on your N scale layout. The instructions include the paint color formulas used to finish this model.
