Bridge Abutments
#ZTR-100   Cut Stone Abutments
• Released July 2018
• Undecorated Cut Stone Bridge Abutment Kit
• Includes one pair
      $20.00 retail ea. • $16.00
Product information:
Our castings come in their natural gray color. These pieces are cast using a high strength modified gypsum and then oven cured for maximum strength. We suggest applying a light coat of flat white spray primer to act as a sealing coat to your model. By applying a light coat of primer before you add your colors and weathering, you insure yourself an even and stable color "canvas" for your paint, washed and weathering.

Designed around the Micro-Trains Line through girder bridge, our cut stone abutment set shows its age beautifully! The face texture of the stone is taken from an actual slate surface for added realism. The large cut stones are scale accurate and aged to show years of facing the elements.
The MTL bridge has a thin molded plate on each corner of the bridge representing a bridge shoe. Weíve designed our abutment taking this bridge shoe into account so the connecting track pieces sit flat with a slight bridge "stop" for easier bridge placement.
Details:
Height 1: From base to "shelf", the MTL bridge sits on, the height is 1.45"

Our poured concrete abutment set has individually applied concrete forming boards that are scale accurate at 9" high and on average 10' to 12' in length. Weíve even modeled a bit of concrete being squeezed out between the boards!

We recommend using a 2-part epoxy to attach these walls to the abutment. Depending on the bridge used you may need to add a styrene or wood shim to match your track height.

This aged concrete abutment set has put in lots of work over the years and will soon need to be repaired or replaced. In the meantime, it would make a great addition to your layout or diorama as a working abutment or as an abandoned piece to add history to your scene.
We began by laying scale accurate forming boards over this classic abutment design. Then came time for aging in the way of cracks, erosion and lots of exposure to the elements! Each abutment in this set has its own unique aged pattern and patched areas to add to the overall realism.

Height 1: From the base to the "lower shelf", 1.25"
Height 2: From the base to the "upper shelf", 1.75"

The Art Deco movement of the 1930s and 40s as well as its resurgence in the 1960s inspired our Art Deco abutments. All the concrete forming boards were laid in board-by-board on the master model and decorative details such as quarter round shapes are placed vertically in the stepped walls.

Product information:
This 3-piece portal set includes two unique tunnel liners that sit flush to the rear of the portal and extend 2.5" beyond the portal face. We use natural rock casts to create these pieces and to have them join with minimal visible seams. The tunnel liners have a flat bottom and ends to form a simple butt joint with the rear of the portal.
We wanted to give this piece an older look but of course, many modern railroads still travel through portals just like this. If you'd like to run a double stack intermodal car through, once you attach the tunnel liners to the portal face just shim the entire piece up by .020" or so.
Details:

Portal Clearance: 1.5" in the center
Tunnel Liners: 1.75" high and 2.5" long

Nothing like a loading ramp and freight platform to add a little character to any scene! This ramp and platform set will work nicely in a team track setting or in one of my favorites, an abandoned spur setting.
The 3D brickwork is from Monster Modelworks and is laser engraved so we actually have bricks of different heights, nicely simulating aged brick.
The tops of the ramp and platform have been given a slightly rough and patched look, you can give it a gray color wash to simulate concrete, paint it flat black for asphalt or add you own soil for a very rural look. Since the ramp and platform are separate pieces, you can arrange them to suit your scene.
Details:

Ramp: 3" Long, .6" Wide, .34" High
Platform: 1.45" Long, .9" Wide, .34" High

Product information:
This pair of retaining walls makes for a nice accent next to a portal or just by themselves against a hill. For an interesting twist, you could add these next to a cut where a tunnel portal used to be! Touches like this can add a real feel of age and history to a scene, even when you donít have a lot of free space on a layout.
Using scale accurate forming boards, broken and cracked, allows for easier weathering using paint washes and weathering powders.

Wall 1: 1.75" High, 2.25" Wide

This is a simple 2-piece set cast in white resin. Assembly is quick and easy with a thin bead of epoxy.

Our shed has lots of character with the concrete being cracked, repaired and distressed from the elements... all cast into each shed!
Limited Run         Very low quantities!
Product information:
Our resin snow shed is a fine accessory to add to any Z scale mountain scene if you're modeling the snowy or the summer season.
With so much surface detail built in, weathering is easy. Placement is easy too, just place the open side of the shed next to your mountain or hill and you're all set for the heavy snows. If you're modeling a non-snow scene, you can add rock debris and soil to the top of the shed for a convincing look.
We take care of all the flash removal from these two pieces here in our shop and give these two pieces a thorough washing to remove any mold release. We also apply a coat of Dupli-Color automotive adhesion promoter to make painting and weathering easier! All you need to do is to epoxy the two pieces together, paint and weather!

5.5" High, 1.45" Interior Height, 1.6" Interior Width
