Whistlestop Junction was the first structure we ever produced to be made
hobby shops.Â Available in both "N" & "HO" scales we wanted to make sure we were going to
take a different approach to our models, not simply do some re-hash of an American ModelÂ
Builders kit (the best known leaser kits available in stores at the time). Now, don't get usÂ
wrong, we like AMB kits, but we figured "they" would be "them", and "we" would be "us", andÂ
what good would honestly come of just another "copycat" company ? Even this early on weÂ
wanted to do something special... and we did ! From the laser-cut roofing (I did the photo
in the model in one day. you can tell by the sloppy roofing job), to the etched nail holes
Bar Mills kits would have to be both different, and affordable. This station is generic, andÂ
that is what we were looking to do.Â As free-lance modelers ourselves I didn't see Bar MillsÂ
as doing much with "prototype" oriented stuff... even to this day our structures tend to be
more "Imagineered" than "engineered". The building was a copy of one that the lateÂ
Rob Corriston did, it's fancy, but not really, and unassuming, but not really... anyway
you get the idea.
