Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book arrived in the condition expected. The models are great looking pieces. Model railroad enthusiast should look into using paper models for their layouts. The graphics on the vast majority of them are great. You can resize the models to fit your preferred scale with some easily available software and a scanner. (Just don't make scans available to others since it would be a violation of the copyright.)

Another advantage is the ability to scan some of the architectural details and add them to the model to get a more 3D effect. Stuff like moldings, window and door trim, and in some cases roof and siding treatments can be added to really make the models pop and be a great addition to a model railroad layout.

Students cut, fold, and create a main street which looks like many at the turn of the century. The street has a theater, bakery, grocery, rail station, drug store, diner, bank,and office. This could be used by whole language or social study teachers reading or studying about the 1880's to 1910 period.

By David Blustein on November 9, 2013
Format: Paperback
Scoring, cutting and gluing was a project that took some time. As we worked on it we became better at it. The finished buildings have lots of detail. When completed it reminded me of Rogers Park in Chicago, the neighborhood I grew up in. We set it up on plywood and had fun with matchbox cars and HO gage figures my sons painted. We would play out different acts, like the train coming into the station and being met by important people. It was a good project for me and my children to work on together.
