Ogden's Bookstore

Publication: Model Railroader
Publication Date: April 2009



Ogden's Bookstore is loosely based on a structure in the gold mining ghost town of Bodie, California. In addition to the laser-cut wood walls, the kit includes injection-molded doors and windows, peel-and-stick shingles, copper flashing, a cast-plaster foundation, and white-metal detail parts. The structure's footprint is 2 3/4" x 5 1/4".

The kit is easy to assemble thanks to clear and well-ilustrated step-by-step instructions. Since the kit includes a variety of stripwood for the modeler to cut, it's a good idea to have a miter box, razor saw, and some sanding sticks handy.

The peel-and-stick shingles adhere well to the cardstock subroof. To help keep shingles in even rows, the manufacturer has supplied a spacing guide that can be attached to the cardstock with double-sided tape or a glue stick.

The kit also includes a few extras, such as a Jordan Highway Miniatures 1928 Ford Model A pickup kit and a sheet with tips for weathering wood.

Ogden's Bookstore follows an architectural style that would look appropriate on HO scale layouts set in the 19th or early 20th centuries. -C.G.
