Next week 

We will be releasing our new line of starter and budget disks. One of the disks is called “More Brick bldg.”

There will be 3 kits plus extras. These disks will be a flat 20 bucks.  This one will have, “The Jefferson Ice Co.”, .”The Small Machine Shop” and “The Brick Mercantile”.   I know not the most creative names.

I want to talk about the brick version of our popular mercantile building. the original merc. is a small odd triangular building.  If I hadent seen similar buildings in real life, I wouldn’t believe any one would build such a narrow structure.  There are several  in Chicago. the “Matchbox Tap” comes to mind.   At one end, I don’t think it’s 8 feet wide.  Back to the point.  What makes this building so usefull is that it fits so many hard to fit spots.  It’s just enough of a view break on a layout to help define a scene.  I have three of them on my layout and it’s really small.  It’s just the most usefull structure I’ve ever seen.

Not wanting 3 identicle buildings on my layout, I made this brick version and we are finally making it available.

Here’s a CG rendering of the model.

These buildings are great. And very convenient when we have curves or angles. There's a brick prototype in Alpena, Michigan, a limestone loading port on Lake Huron. Use your mapping software to look at 150 East Chisholm Street, Alpena, MI 49707

Have you given any consideration to making the 3 kit set available as a download purchase?

Eventually all of the kits will be available but it takes a lot of effort with code on the web page and we have trouble finding enough time as this is still not a full time self supporting venture. Some of the kits are already available. Both the small machine shop and the speeder shed are oin the new disks.
It's the shows that provide the deadlines that motivate getting the disks done.
The "Jackson collections" are a bit of an experiment to see if a lower cost collection will boost sales. Some people still hesitate to spend $39.95 for a disk even with as many as 10 kits on them. (we have thought for a long time that 10 kits on a disk is too much) 3 kits plus extras for a flat $20 may be more attractive to people who haven't experienced card stock before.

Thom --- I'd like to order 3 buildings. Pls. contact me at 770-442-0376 or at my e-mail address. The 3 are Part No. S 13, "The Brick Merchantile,"More Brick Building," unknown part number, and "The Rudy Co.," unknown number. I think I have already ordered "Small Branch Line," No. S 44.
