HO Creamery

Prior to the building of the interstate highway system in the 1950’s the railroads hauled nearly all of the milk that was consumed in the larger cities. Local farmers would deliver cans of Bessie’s best to the local creamery where it would be inspected, stored, chilled. The cans would be cleaned and returned to the farmer. The milk would be shipped to the city in railroad-hauled milk cars.

The prototypes for our kit was built at Clark’s, near Campbell Hall, NY on the New York, Ontario & Western. Similar designs could be found throughout the Northeast.

Item #681    MSRP: $43.98

HO Icehouse

Most creameries were built before mechanical refrigeration. As a result many were built with an adjacent icehouse. Icehouses were also used alone along the line for storage of ice for reefers and milk cars. Our icehouse is also based on a NYO&W design to match the creamery.

HO Meat Packing Plant

Our meat packing plant is based on a prototype built by Swift in Burlington, VT. Similar buildings could be seen throughout the Northeast and in other areas of the country, and the design was not unique to Swift with similar designs being used by Armour and others. Such a plant would get in whole carcasses in meat reefers specific to the brand. Butchers in the plant would cut up the carcasses for retail trade, and from here the finished product would be shipped out by truck to retail locations.
