Customer feedback about this structure has led to the design and release of three additional structures based upon the model 9604. The two strongest points of feedback that we received were that some individuals did not like the ventilation cupola, and wanted a bit more of a traditional structure. The second point was that they would like to use the structure more as a general freight platform with an office, rather than just simply a tool and supply shed. As a result of these inputs, we designed the models 9602, 9603, and 9605 structures.
The model 9602 is identical to that of the 9604 except that the ventilation cupola has been removed. The model 9603 also does not have a cupola, but the ends of the shed have been modified. The end near the dock has a standard door and window so that it appears that an office is in that end of the shed. The far end of the shed has a single window centered in it to allow additional light into the structure. The model 9605 has all the features, and has the same ends as the 9603 in addition to including the ventilation cupola. All of these new designs still use the same platform that was originally designed for the 9604. They can be obtained in our standard colors (link to Color Selection), or they can be obtained as raw redwood.

The model 9604 Lineside Tool and Supply Shed is a charming structure that features a board and batten structure built on a raised platform. The shed has two movable doors; one, a standard door, and a second, is a sliding freight door. The roof is hand shingled with cedar shingles and features a ventilation cupola on top to distinguish it from other plain structures. You can also obtain the supply shed with a corrugated metal or tar paper roof. The platform is of a stacked timber design, built to boxcar or flatcar height, so that railroad tools and supplies can be unloaded. There is a rear stairway to ground level, and a dock area to load or unload wagons or trucks. The entire structure is made of redwood and cedar and double stained inside and out. This structure can be used anywhere on the railway, in the rail yard area, alongside the mainline, or at the end of a siding. With the addition of some tools, crates, and people, you have a perfect lineside scene without having to tear up and redesign your layout.
The lineside tool and supply shed requires a space that is 19" long and 8 1/2" deep. The overall height of the shed is 10". The platform should be placed away from the track based upon your widest piece of rolling stock. The weight of this structure is about four pounds. As with all our structures, each Lineside Tool and Supply Shed is stamped with its own serial number.
