This is a Walthers 933-3258 N Scale Butterfly-Style Station Platform Shelter Cornerstone Kit.

From suburban station to busy city terminal, the platform was the first and last stop for every passenger. Tall walkways allowed passengers fast and easy access to and from trains. The hard surface made it easy to wheel baggage and mail carts into place, as well as supplies for the diner or other cars. And since no one liked being too wet or warm, a roof provided some protection from the elements. As an alternate to costly train sheds, American railroads tried three distinct styles of station platforms including the Busch, Umbrella and Butterfly types. Of these, the Butterfly (so named because of its up-swept, wing-shaped roof) was cheaper to build and eliminated the maintenance headaches of other designs. Providing plenty of ventilation for engine exhaust and just enough protection from the sun and rain for passengers, Butterfly platforms gained widespread popularity early in the 20th century. Now you can build a detailed terminal scene for your passenger service with this all-new kit. Based on the almost universal Butterfly design, platforms of this type can be found at stations in big cities and outlying suburbs where they have served passengers for many years. Parts for eight complete platforms (each 6 15cm long) are provided, and the kit has a modular design so longer platforms can easily be built to fit your space. Optional underground subway stair ways, wooden walkway crossings between tracks, platform benches, detailed steel columns and platform signboards are all included. Ideal for use with any steam-, transition- or diesel-era layout, the platforms look great alongside Union Station (933-3257, sold separately) and similar station facilities. Each Section Measures: 6-1/8 x 1-1/4 x 1-3/8 15.3 x 3.1 x 3.4cm.
