UPLAND TRAINS ‘A’ BUILDING
This building is exclusively manufactured and distributed by Upland Trains. It is made of molded plastic. The walls are not glued, they are molded together for the best quality to go outdoors. The bottom panel is connected by four screws so you can conveniently add lights or details inside your building. The door does not swing open. The building is so strong, that the owner, Kim Poole, can stand on it without it breaking! We have a customer in Las Vegas who has left his building outside for over 10 years now in that extreme heat. If anything, the building looks like all it needs is a fresh coat of paint on the fascia roof (above the door).
The gray building is perfect if you like the color scheme and don’t want to mess with painting the sides of the building. If you decide you want to change the paint color, most customers use any outdoor paint.
By all means, be creative with our buildings! I have heard of people turning them into gas stations, dry goods store, feed store, train station, pet store, etc. This makes a unique and personal gift to your favorite g-scale train engineer! You can personalize and detail it to your heart’s content. I have heard of people cutting them to fit as a false front building for overhead layouts. Or one local store cut out the back end of the building to show details inside of a Harley Davidson motorcycle shop!
We love to see pictures of the finished projects and share them with others for more ideas! Here are some pictures that people have shared with us so far–so you can also have ideas of what you can create with our buildings:
