This is a Tichy 7017 HO Milk Station Kit. Milk was an important source of revenue for railroads in the first half of the century, particularly in the northeast. Farmers would place their milk in 10 gallon cans and bring it to the nearest railroad stop. These milk stations could be as close as every mile in farm country. They were often placed directly on the main line instead of a spur to reduce train movements. The railroad then transported the milk to an online creamery where the milk was processed or turned into milk products. These were then transported by rail to nearby urban centers for consumption. The pickup was usually done by a mixed train that also served as a morning local and provided transport for the farmers' children to the local school. The term milk run still refers to a train that makes every stop. Features: Kit is molded in gray styrene and features scale wall thickness and full interior detail. Platform is 3-1/4 wide x 1-1/4 deep. Building is 1-13/16 wide. Includes 30 milk cans.Condition:
