BTS Willet's Supply Co.

BTS Willet's Supply Co.

Postby oldtrainguy » Mon Oct 12, 2015 3:59 am

Just received a couple of items I purchased from BTS.

The Loading Dock and Willet's Supply Co.

Here are some pictures of the Willet Supply Co. as it arrived. Hopefully I can get off my butt and get it assembled soon and post more pictures. I was really impressed with what is in this kit for the price. There are 5 double sided pages included with 8 of the pages instructions, 1 page is a list of parts and the last page a list of other TT scale products.

There are numerous small detail pieces. According to the parts list there are 258 separate pieces to this kit.

Nice pictures.

Who made the boxcab and MDT or WDT switcher? They are TT correct?

Nice to see pictures of the completed model. I am trying to decide on the colour I am going to use so its nice to see the colour you guy's used.

Are those some of the other BTS kits I see in the one picture?

And yes, the other buildings on our exhibition layout are also from BTS, the station and the switcher shed.

By a slight modification, I use this building as a small freight house served by a private spur track. However, I applied the green color as suggested on the box.
