SierraWest kits are so much more than a structure and details. The diorama creation is paramount in the development of each new kit. Instructions are provided leading you through every phase of construction including tool selection, assembly, weathering and aging, diorama composition, and scenery application. When you view the pictures of the Loco and Service Shops remember this. SierraWest kits are unique in the level and amount of detail provided. Since all four sides are fully detailed, you have a ton of flexibility in placement and view ability.
The Loco Shop is an overnight light repair shop for the locomotives. The crew would perform basic maintenance while servicing and preparing them for the woods crew to take over in the morning. This was a very efficient way to keep the operation running smoothly. The Loco Shop is the perfect compliment to your existing engine house facilities.
The Loco and Service Shops utilize Laser Cut components that include fully-framed sub-walls, assembly jigs, and wonderful windows that supplement the board on board building process, aid construction, and leave you in charge of the finished product. Clutter, castings, and scene creation like only SierraWest can achieve. Everything pictured is included except scenery, and track. Our famous comprehensive manual and digitally reproduced accurate templates guide you thoughtfully along the construction process. I consider myself a teacher in addition to being a manufacturer. My manual provides guidance and confidence building techniques allowing you to reproduce the results pictured. I am so proud of the number of customers who have won major national awards with the SierraWest kits they have constructed, following my instructions!
Designing and producing kits in both HO and the larger O Scale gives me a unique perspective. I was tired of using the same techniques and construction methodology that I had used since I was ten years old. It was time for a fresh look and feel. I found that I could incorporate a superior level of detail and realism into the construction of the the Loco and Service Shops using O Scale techniques and influences. In fact, it was quite easy and very satisfying; just look at the results. SierraWest HO Scale kits represent an evolution in kit design and production. The Loco and Service Shops is produced with the heart and soul of an O Scale diorama!.
I founded SierraWest in 1995 and have been a one man operation since day one. I make everything by hand to my exacting standards and know you will be pleased with your kit! I will never sacrifice quality for speed and always provide exceptional customer service and support including fast response to emails and phone calls. I am always here if you have any questions so please feel free to contact me anytime before or after you order. Thank you sincerely for you support!
The attention to the smallest detail is evident. The story telling is paramount in the development of each new kit. Instructions are provided leading you through every phase of construction including tool selection, assembly, weathering and aging, diorama composition, and scenery creation and application. It is of the utmost of importance to me that the techniques I develop and utilize are reproducible for modelers of all experience levels. When you view the pictures of the Loco Shop remember this. SierraWest kits are unique in the level and amount of detail provided. Since all four sides are fully detailed, you have a ton of flexibility in placement and view-ability.
