Tolleson Grocery and Past Time Pool Hall
and
Bansner Feed

Publication: Narrow Gauge and Short Line Gazette
Publication Date: Jan/Feb 2010



Bollinger Edgerly Scale Trains sells two new HO scale kits that depict buildings that still exist next to each other in Wickenburg, Arizona. These kits are part of BEST’s series of kits replicating Wickenburg as it appeared in 1915. Both kits include high quality laser cut, tab-and-slot, wood walls, and laser cut doors, windows and trim, along with stripwood, corrugated roofing and metal details including figures. A Jordan Highway Miniatures vehicle is included with each kit.

Tolleson Grocery and Past Time Pool Hall sells for $89.95 and is shown on the left in the photo. The kit includes last cut, wood, tab-and-slot walls, onto which outer walls are laminated. A jig is provided to help get the canopy at the correct height. I found this jig to be fussy, but it did help get the canopy square. I substituted Paper Creek corrugated roofing for the Campbell corrugated material provided in the kit in order to save time. The sign for the front of this kit is a large decal. I sanded my decal to weather it, and had no difficulty applying this decal to my model.

Bansner Feed sells for $109.95, and is shown on the right in the photo. It has laser cut plastic “stucco” walls that are laminated over the laser cut wood, tab and slot walls. The corners have to be “puttied.” I found this required some skill, but the rest of the kit assembled perfectly. The gable roof is to be covered with corrugated material, but to save time, I used Paper Creek printed corrugated roofing. The instructions did not show where to put the stove pipe, but I called BEST, and was told it could be anywhere in the rear of the building.

I found both of these kits assembled into realistic models and the inclusion of Jordan Highway Miniature vehicle kits an added bonus.
