Remember The Three Lakes Choo Choo Store

Build a kitbashed or scratch model of the original

All Skill Levels

Kit, Kitbash, or Scratch Built


Try building the Choo Choo Store from old time kits, new windows and doors and maybe even scratch building part or the entire store. If you have a Ma's Place kit or any other of that set of building parts you can build this project. For a sample HO fold-up click here Choo Choo Store HO .pdf, there is no roof yet in the fold-up yet. For a floor plan with the inside wall and alt "Pool Hall" windows click here.

Drawings of the Choo Choo Store building in O and S are available. For a sample click Choo Choo Store O or Choo Choo Store S or Choo Choo Store HO

Full Drawings are listed at the bottom of the page.

If you have any of these kits sitting around you may want to join in a kitbashing session.

Yes even a stock yard is the same basic kit.

Here are some kit parts along with Grandt Line windows and doors. There is also a new roof made from Evergreen plastic.

These are the makings of the project below I have links to drawings of the walls in O, S, and HO scales
