The prototype for the Johnsonville Tower kit is located in Johnsonville, New York at the former junction of the Boston and Maine Railroad's (B & M's) East-West Mainline and its Troy, New York Branch. Not only was this junction home to B & M freight and passenger trains making connections to the New York Central Railroad over the Troy Branch, but it was also frequently used by the Delaware and Hudson (D & H) and Rutland Railroads. Johnsonville Tower was built in 1931 as part of the B & M's initial investment in Centralized Traffic Control (CTC) and was retired in 1962 when CTC functions were further consolidated into Greenfield, Massachusetts. This tower was used for storage until the mid-1970's when it was abandoned.
The laser-cut brick pieces featured in this kit are created from our "Model Builder's Supply Line" styrene building sheets and the foundation is created from "Taskboard", a wood fiber building material, that is also part of our "Model Builder's Supply Line".
