HO/N Scale

Union Station Products produces undecorated plastic passenger car sides which are applied to Eastern Car Works, Brass Car Side's core or American Limited Models core kits to produce accurate models of specific cars. The construction concept is the same idea as has been offered from Brass Car Sides. These sides are available in HO and N scales and are produced directly from Pullman-Standard, Budd and other car builders original plans. Note: the numbers are the Pullman-Standard plan number. These cars can be ordered via Mark's site. N scalers will want to read the ordering instructions carefully.

SP&S Advertising signs. Available only through the SP&S Company store. These signs are based on original signs that could be found in the Portland area.
The "Our Wheels are just as big" is available only in HO Scale. This sign is based on the Atlas billboard.
The "Ship and Travel" sign is available in both HO and N scale. It comes as a one sided sign. In order to produce the double sided sign, as original, it will take two kits. The smaller sign can be used for a distant HO sign. And the larger sign will work for O scale as well. This sign was custom made by Blair, exclusively for the SP&SHS.
See the Company Store for ordering information.
