    Can you xperts help me?
    Modeling a 1980's N Scale layout featuring Burlington Northern.
    I would prefer high quality, high detail structure kits for that era. I'm thinking along the lines of Blair Line & DPM Gold. The offering of these two lines is limited however.
    It seems that HO has plenty of this type structure but N is limited.
    Where shud I look?

    I just re-read my post & mebee need to clear up what help I could use.
    Would like the names of manufacturers who make high quality, high detail N Scale kits for the pre 1980 era. Similiar to Blair Line.

    Type of structures

    Hey Charlie & others:
    Thanx for the input. What i'm lookin' for is rural, smallbusiness, residential & light industry ie, sawmill, rock crusher mill,passenger depot & assorted trackside structures etc.
    It's all going on a 4'6"x8' N scale layout.
    I've seen some HO structure kits with knockout detail & super quality. But can't find the same in N. Probably because I don't know where to look.

    A good place to start might be www.walthers.com. They are a distributor, and their website has a search function that lets you look up items by scale, type, manufacturer and/or keyword. When I got back into the hobby a couple of years ago, I found the site very useful for getting an idea of what kits were available.

    You'll find better prices for the items at other stores/sites, but Walthers carries a lot of hard-to-find items.
